Faster workflows with prefilled cartridges

Work faster and smarter with prefilled cartridges. Compatible with a wide range of sample types, you can reduce plastic consumption and save up to 20 minutes per run.

Get reliable results

Using prefilled cartridges reduces the risk of manual pipetting errors for peace of mind and more consistent downstream results.

Save time

You can save up to 20 minutes per run by eliminating manual reagent pipetting steps. That’s enough time to prep another set of samples – or have a coffee break.

Reduce plastic use

Available in several sizes, prefilled cartridges give you complete sample preparation flexibility. With no separate reagent bottles to worry about, you’ll only ever use the plastic you need.

Flexible sizes

Cartridges are available in a variety of formats, including 96-well, so even if you have another platform in your lab, you can still enjoy the benefits of prefilled cartridges.

How it works

INDICAL's prefilled cartridges are as easy as 1, 2, 3! Simply spin down and peel off the lid, add your samples, followed by the lysis buffer, and you’re ready to get great results. No fuss. No mess. You can even store unopened cartridges at room temperature, for even greater convenience.

Flexible sizes

Cartridges are available for our IndiMag 48s in 8 and 24 samples sizes, so you’re only ever using the plastic you need. We even do them in a 96-well format, so even if you have another platform in your lab, you can still enjoy the benefits of prefilled cartridges.

Frequently asked questions

Yes. We offer Prefilled Cartridges for common 96-well systems. For our IndiMag 48/s instruments, the cartridges are available in two sizes; for 8 and 24 samples per cartridge.

You can run between 1 and 48 samples with the IndiMag 48s. Our modular system reduces plastic waste by only using required consumables.

The typical run time is around 30 minutes.

In general, we provide our pathogen kits in two variants: prefilled and non-prefilled/bottled. Prefilled cartridges are sealed plastic consumables, preloaded with the required reagents. This significantly reduces the required pipetting steps and hence, hands-on time, while increasing overall workflow stability.

Our kits are also available in a bottled variant, if you prefer to fill and prepare them yourself.

The UV lamp is another tool to reduce manual workload in the lab. Using UV light, the IndiMag 48s can run a decontamination protocol to reduce the risks of cross-contamination.

The subscription model is our way of making it even easier for you to access the benefits of our platform. With no down payment required, you simply choose the number of samples and a predefined subscription run time and we’ll calculate the rest, with your choice of monthly or quarterly shipments.

The IndiMag product portfolio (instrument and kits) works with a variety of sample types. These include (but are not limited to) whole blood, serum, milk, swabs, tissue and feces. Some sample types may require pretreatment steps, with 200 µl of sample being the recommended volume.  For mastitis workflows, we offer mastitis kit. 

The IndiMag 48s comes with preinstalled protocols for use with INDICAL’s extraction kits. Additionally, customer-specific protocols can be saved on the instrument.

The IndiMag Pathogen Kit is also available for 96-well plate instruments, such as ThermoFisher’s KingFisher Flex, or the QIAGEN BioSprint 96. Protocols are available upon request.
