Step 1Place 96-well plate in a cool block for the duration of reaction setup.
Step 2Carefully peel back the foil seal. It is recommended to do this in sections to minimise open wells during pipetting. Check there is a reagent bead in each well.
Step 3Pipette 20µL of extracted specimen or control into the side of each well. Add 20µL of nuclease free water to any wells that do not contain a specimen. Ensure all beads have been rehydrated.
Step 4Carefully peel optical film seal from its backing and seal the plate. Use of a microtitre sealing brayer or similar is recommended.
Step 5Carefully drop cool block 3 times from 1 cm height. Vortex the cool block/plate for 3 x 15 seconds at full power (total 45 seconds).
Step 6Carefully drop cool block 3 times from 1 cm height. Incubate on cool block for 5 minutes.
Step 7Vortex the cool block/plate for 3 x 15 seconds at full power (total 45 seconds).
Step 8Centrifuge the plate 2 minutes at 2000 RPM.
