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 (PN-1000499) includes two Low Profile (LP) Thermocycler Adapters, which are 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 Visium 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.
Also included in the Visium CytAssist Reagent Accessory Kit is one 10x Magnetic Separator for performing the SPRIselect bead cleanup steps.
