Question: If I already have a Visium Accessory Kit, do I need to purchase the Visium CytAssist Reagent Accessory Kit?
Answer: Yes. The Visium CytAssist Reagent Accessory Kit includes the Low Profile (LP) Thermocycler Adapter, which is compatible with the new Visium and Tissue Slide Cassettes. This LP Adapter is designed to be compatible with more thermal cyclers than the original Thermocycler Adapter.
The LP Thermocycler Adapter is not backward compatible with Visium for fresh-frozen or Visium for FFPE v1. Use of the LP Thermocycler Adapter with the old Slide Cassettes will lead to insufficient heating. Use of the Thermocycler Adaptor with the Tissue and Visium Slide Cassettes could lead to Cassette leakage or damage to the slide.
