Software Overview

The MANTIS control software is made up of three main panels and a status bar.

MANTIS Interface


Section 1: Device Control Panel

Section 1 is the Device Control panel. This is where you execute commands on the MANTIS instrument using the buttons at the top. Here you can also view information about your current plate definition, the total volume per well, and the number of plates to be dispensed. For more information, see Device Control Panel.

Section 2: Input Control Panel

Section 2 is the Input Control Panel. Use this panel to assign reagents to chip stations, run the wash, prime, and reagent recovery processes, and tell the MANTIS whether you are using Low Volume (LV), High Volume (HV), High Volume PFE, Low Volume PFE, High Volume 3PFE, Low Volume 3PFE, or High Volume Continuous Flow (CF) chips. For more information, see Input Control Panel.
