This Information Applies To: Agilent AriaMx real-time PCR system
Scratches on AriaMx optical modules can lead to a reduction in their performance.
Scratches on an AriaMx optical module are shown in Figure 1.
Scratches on the AriaMx optical modules can have several effects, including:
Given these potential consequences, it is crucial to handle and clean optical modules with care to minimize the risk of scratches. If scratches do occur, it may be necessary to address them through maintenance or, in severe cases, replacement of the affected optical module.
