A PCR cycling device will be automatically created as an instrument after the first authorization of a runfile from that device. The 'Instrument ID' will be filled in automatically if available in the run file.
The instrument name will be set as the instrument ID by default but can be renamed to the laboratory's preference.
Optional instrument information can be filled in, e.g. last calibration date.
In case no instrument ID is available in the run file, you can add an instrument ID by adding the numerical value that is followed by an exclamation mark (!) in the file name: ID!RunNameXyz (eg: ABI7500_27!COVID30DEC2021)
It is not possible to delete an instrument once created.
All supported devices can be found in the IFU: See Support
