MANTIS Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID)

This MANTIS option uses a Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tag installed in each chip to provide helpful information about the chip usage and dispense process. The MANTIS instrument with RFID is fitted with six antennas for a faster RFID tag reading/writing process.

The following basic information is stored on each RFID chip itself:

Option Description
Chip Type E.g. High Volume, Low Volume, PFE, 3PFE, or Continuous Flow.
Total Volume Dispensed Total volume that this chip has dispensed to date.
Small Diaphragm Cycle Total number of Small Diaphragm cycles to date.
Large Diaphragm Cycle Total number of Large Diaphragm cycles to date.
Date of Manufacture This chip’s manufacturing date.
Chip Serial Number This chip's unique ID.

Dispense History

After each dispense using an RFID chip, the following information will be stored directly onto your MANTIS database, tagged to the serial number of that chip.

Option Description
Dispense Date Dispensing process date.
Protocol Name Name of the protocol used for the dispensing process.
Dispense List Name Name of the dispense list used for the dispensing process.
Plate Type Plate type used for the dispensing process.
Reagent Name Name of the reagent used during the dispensing process.
Chip Position Number Chip station number in the Chip Changer or LC3 Carousel.
Input Type Input source type, such as tube or pipette.
Total Volume Dispensed Total volume that this chip has dispensed to date.
Small Diaphragm Cycle Total number of Small Diaphragm cycles to date.
Large Diaphragm Cycle Total number of Large Diaphragm cycles to date.
Fill Cycle Total number of Fill Diaphragm cycles to date.
Output Cycle Total number of Output Diaphragm cycles to date.
Dispense Status Status of a dispensing process, whether it is finished or interrupted.
Prime Volume Volume used for the priming process.
Pre-Dispense Volume Volume used for the pre-dispensing process.
Primary Wash Volume Volume used for the primary wash process.
Secondary Wash Volume Volume used for the secondary wash process.
Recovery Volume Volume used for the recovery process.
Wash After Dispense Wash behavior after the dispensing process. There are three kinds of behaviors:
  • Plate: The washing process is done after the plate dispensing process.
  • Reagent: The washing process is done after a reagent has been dispensed.
  • Disabled: The washing process is done after a dispense process is disabled.
