Hi,
you're right, the v3 version of the Ion PGM™ Controls Kit doesn't have any Control Ion Spheres. The v2 version did.
Well size is notably bigger in PGM chips compared to Proton's PI, so I would say that the ISPs are not interchangeable, unfortunately. You might end up losing them during the run, I suppose.
An aliquot of Control ISPs comes with PGM sequencing kits - although they are barely more than what's needed for the kit's normal usage.
Did you need to make a test run with only control ISPs, as opposed to the normal amount of control ISPs that go in a sequencing run? Thermo engineers do use full control runs to check the machines at installation, so perhaps Thermo might be able to help?
