Smooth Continuous Flow Calibration with Manual Prime

The Continuous Flow Calibration wizard now takes advantage of the Manual Priming process to ensure an accurate and complete prime volume. You can also apply this prime volume to the Input settings for optimal automated priming in the future. For more information, see Calibrating Continuous Flow Chips.

MANTIS 4.7 includes several other improvements for better usability:


  • Optimized MANTIS RFID functionality to detect RFID chips when attached/detached to/from the automatic chip changer.


  • MANTIS 4.7.4 now delivers a popup dialog to inform you that your MANTIS software doesn’t support the use of Continuous Flow (CF) chips when CF chips are detected in the chip changer. You must activate the CF feature license to continue using CF chips.
