Frequently Asked Questions

Can Mic run the same chemistry as my existing qPCR cycler?

Yes. The protocols for most assays will transfer to Mic without any changes. In some cases where a standard Taq polymerase is used (i.e. not specified to be compatible with fast cycling) we suggest you use the ‘Standard Taq Temperature Control’ option in the run profile. This slows down the heating rate of the Mic instrument to be closer to other instruments.

What is the difference between the previous generation Peltier Block based cyclers and Mic's patented induction technology?

The Magnetic Induction system used by Mic to heat the sample works on the same principle as an induction cooktop. The benefits over a peltier block based system are:

  • Fast cycling times (runs in less than 25 min)
  • Superior temperature uniformity (±0.05°C)
  • Only the rotor is heated - no need for thermal insulation
  • Mechanical simplicity results in one of the smallest real-time qPCR machines ever made
  • Rotary design allows us to incorporate an oil overlay ensuring no evaporation and no condensation. The oil overlay gives superior results and there is no need for a heated lid.

Can I run Mic in the field?

Yes. The portability and robustness of Mic is a huge advantage for anyone needing to do real time PCR in the field. Mic has proven to run reliably off batteries (car, truck or solar powered) using an inverter to supply between 100V and 240V AC.

What reaction volumes are compatible with Mic?

Yes. The protocols for most assays will transfer to Mic without any changes. In some cases where a standard Taq polymerase is used (i.e. not specified to be compatible with fast cycling) we suggest you Having flexibility in running different volumes is important to many users. Small volumes allow for significant reductions in reagent costs. Higher volumes allow for greater sensitivity in their test by increasing the chances of detecting the target. Mic maintains the same performance for any volume from 5 to 30μL. the ‘Standard Taq Temperature Control’ option in the run profile. This slows down the heating rate of the Mic instrument to be closer to other instruments.

Why does Mic not require calibration?

A thermal sensor is embedded in the spinning rotor which measures tube temperature directly. This sensor does not drift over time so there is no need for it to be recalibrated. For those customers who require an annual validation report, we have a Temperature Verification System.


Mic's optical system has a fixed optical path and no moving parts. This means there is never any need for optical alignment or calibration. Because every sample spins past the same detector there are no reference dyes or crosstalk compensation is required either.
