A chip status test gives you important information about the quality of your chip. We recommend performing a chip status test before each assay. The chip test assay performs a regeneration step during which the surface is functionalized with blank Adapter strands, a passivation step and a status measurement. The test yields two important parameters to assess the chip quality:

  1. Inflection Point: should be in the range of -50 to 400 mV
  2. Relative Amplitude: should be > 40 %
