Instruments

High Throughput

FlexSTAR platform workflow (FlexSTAR / FlexSTAR+) – Includes protocols for 0.5-2 ml, 2-5 ml, and 6-10 ml of fresh or frozen whole blood
  • Throughput: Loads 1-30 samples from a variety of primary tube sizes directly on the instrument
  • Chemistry: Customizable workflow incorporating proven and reliable precipitation-based chemistry with 17 years of long-term storage data while offering automated liquid handling from primary sample tubes to final DNA storage tubes
  • Unique Features:
    • High-quality gDNA, free from protein or RNA contaminants – up to 200kb molecular weight and up to 400μg of ready-to-use DNA for your downstream and long-term storage
    • Tracks and records barcodes throughout the process to preserve sample integrity
    • FlexSTAR kits include all required consumables for nucleic acid purification and require far less plasticware than other, less environmentally friendly solutions

 

Medium Throughput

XTRACT 16+ – Extraction of DNA and RNA from up to 1.2ml blood
  • Throughput: Processes 1-16 samples
  • Chemistry: Magnetic, bead-based
  • Unique Features:
    • Easy-to-use touch screen operation
    • UV decontamination
    • LIMs integration with sample tracking/bar code scanning

 

Low Throughput

QuickGene-610L
  • Throughput: Extracts 1-6 samples of 1-2ml whole blood in 12 minutes
  • Chemistry: Ultra-thin, polymer, membrane-based, bench-top system, that does not require centrifugation or vacuum
  • Unique Features:
    • Higher molecular weight due to gentle positive air pressure, minimizing shearing
    • Multiple input racks add to daily throughput with checkerboard processing
    • Easy to use
    • Variable resuspension volumes
QuickGene-Mini8L Non-automated version of the QuickGene-610L
  • Throughput: Processes 1-8 blood samples of 1-2ml (each) at once
  • Chemistry: Ultra-thin, polymer, membrane-based, bench-top system, that does not require centrifugation or vacuum
  • Unique Features:
    • Provides a faster workflow in comparison to a standard manual kit
    • Compact and affordable
