Instruments

High Throughput

FlexSTAR platform workflow (FlexSTAR / FlexSTAR+) – Includes protocols for 1-2ml or 2-4ml saliva samples
  • Throughput: Loads 1 – 30 samples directly onto the instrument
  • Chemistry: Customizable workflow incorporating proven and reliable precipitation-based chemistry while offering automated liquid handling from primary sample tubes to final DNA storage tubes
  • Unique Features:
    • 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+
  • Throughput: 1 – 16 samples of DNA from saliva per run
  • 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 saliva per run
  • 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 saliva samples of 1-2ml (each)
  • 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
