The FLEX STAR has been developed as a cost-effective solution for fully automated genomic DNA extraction and isolation from large volumes of whole blood. Combining AutoGen’s robust and reliable instrumentation and Qiagen’s proven FlexiGene chemistry, the FLEX STAR extracts DNA from 1.0 – 10.0 mls of whole blood. The FLEX STAR is completely automated and easy to use with no manual intervention required. Isolate up to 30 whole blood samples per run and produce consistently high quality and high yield genomic DNA, ready for your next application or long-term storage by biorepositories. Also available for the FLEX STAR is a sample tracking and reporting package utilizing bar code identification of samples. The system can also be used to isolate DNA from tissue samples, cells and Oragene•DNA collected saliva samples.
