Title: Reaction field independent jig and reaction chip processing apparatus using the jig

Abstract: The invention provides, with a simple technique, a jig for reliably stemming one or a plurality of flow paths and/or a portion of reaction fields continuously provided in a reaction chip, and for making the flow paths and/or reaction fields independent, and a reaction ship processing apparatus. A reaction field independent jig for making a plurality of reaction fields of a reaction chip independent, the reaction chip including a substrate and a lid material, the substrate including at least the reaction fields and a flow path that brings the reaction fields into communication with each other, the lid material being disposed on the substrate on a side where the reaction fields and the flow path are provided, wherein the reaction field independent jig includes one or a plurality of reaction field independent blades that carry out a squashing operation for squashing the flow path from above the substrate and/or from above the lid material, and the reaction field independent blade includes a heater unit that carries out a heating operation.
