Question
What are the DRB200 configuration options and their differences?
Summary
DRB200 options.
Answer
There are four categories that the DRB200 comes in, and then different well sizes and configurations within those four categories.

115 VAC single block
9x 16 mm and 2x 20 mm wells (Product # LTV082.53.30001)
9x 13 mm and 2x 20 mm wells (Product # DRB200-01)
15x 16 mm wells (Product # LTV082.53.40001)

115 VAC dual block
21x 16 mm and 4x 20 mm wells (Product # LTV082.53.42001)
21x 13 mm and 4x 20 mm wells (Product # DRB200-02)
12x 13 mm and 8x 20 mm wells (Product # DRB200-04)
30x 16 mm wells (Product # LTV082.53.44001)
30x 13 mm wells (Product # DRB200-03)

230 VAC single block
9x 16 mm and 2x 20 mm wells (Product # LTV082.52.30001)
9x 13 mm and 2x 20 mm wells (Product # DRB200-05)
15x 16 mm wells (Product # LTV082.52.40001)

230 VAC dual block
21x 16 mm and 4x 20 mm wells (Product # LTV082.52.42001)
21x 13 mm and 4x 20 mm wells (Product # DRB200-06)
12x 13 mm and 8x 20 mm wells (Product # DRB200-08)
30x 16 mm wells (Product # LTV082.52.44001)
30x 13 mm wells (Product # DRB200-07)

The 115 VAC options are for customers in the US or other countries that use 115 VAC power. The 230 VAC are for EU and other countries that use 230 VAC power. The ones with the 13 mm wells (Product # starting with DRB200) are only recommended if they are only ever going to be used with TNT+ reagents. It is not possible to make small holes bigger, but reducing adapters can be used to make larger holes smaller. Reducing adapter for DRB200, 20 > 16 mm (Product # HHA155) can be used to reduce a 20 mm well to be used with a 16 mm tube. Reactor Adapter, 16mm to 13mm, for TNTplus vials, 5/PK (Product # 2895805) can be used to reduce a 16 mm well to be used with a 13 mm tube (commonly TNT+ reagent). The 20 mm wells are needed in some TNT+ reagent sets that use the 20 mm reaction tube.

Generally speaking it is recommended for customers in the US to get DRB200: Digital Reactor Block: 9 x 16 mm vial wells, 2 x 20 mm vial wells, 115 Vac (Product # LTV082.53.30001) for a single block, or DRB200: Digital Reactor Block: 21 x 16 mm vial wells, 4 x 20 mm vial wells, 115 Vac (Product # LTV082.53.42001) for a dual block reactor. This is because no matter the case these can be used. They have some 20 mm wells, have 16 mm wells for standard test in tube tests, and can be used for TNT+ reagents with the Reactor Adapter, 16mm to 13mm, for TNTplus vials, 5/PK (Product # 2895805). That way even if not all wells are needed when the reactor is purchased, the option is available if the need arises.
