Default Reactions vs. Samples

I'm sorry, this is a dumb question.

When a company advertises 96 reactions, does that essentially mean the product can handle 96 samples? I'm speaking in context of target enrichment/DNA capture.

I think it means you can capture something 96 times. You could do 1 sample 96 times or 96 samples 1 time. That's how I would read it.

So if a product offers 10 reactions with a max size of 2 MB, then I can have 10 samples with 1X coverage on 2 MB OR I can have 1 sample with 10X coverage on 2MB?

I don't think coverage comes into it. That's more of a sequencing issue, not capture.
I would read "10 reactions with a max size of 2 MB" to mean you may capture up to 2MB total 10 times from any number of samples between 1 and 10.
