QuickGene Mini480

The QuickGene Mini480 Nucleic Acid Extraction System is a compact, benchtop model designed to efficiently isolate DNA and RNA from multiple sample types. Like the QuickGene 240L system, its patented technology uses a unique porous membrane for high quality throughput yields. A full range of DNA / RNA extraction kits is also available.

SKU: KQG-99-480M-A Category:


The QuickGene Mini480 is a personal benchtop system for rapid Nucleic Acid Extraction and Purification of DNA and RNA from various samples types, including whole blood, tissue, cells, plants and viruses. This compact unit can process 48 samples, up to 0.2 mL, in a single run, making efficient use of laboratory bench space.

With its ultra-thin polymer membrane, the QuickGene technology allows for effective capture of nucleic acids. This novel low-pressure design requires no centrifugation, delivering quality DNA with high-purity yields.

QuickGene Nucleic Acid Extraction Systems are made in Japan.

Features & Benefits Click Image for Details

Simplified DNA / RNA extraction

Simple and easy DNA/RNA extraction process from primary tube to final storage tubes. The system uses pre-filled, single-use cartridges that can run independently, providing added flexibility and, most important, avoiding any risk of contamination or human error processing. Performs consistent, reliable DNA/RNA isolation of up to 48 samples, 0.2 mL each, in less than 90 minutes.

QuickGene Mini480 Process

Compact, easy to use system

Weighing just 3.3 kg, the compact QuickGene Mini480 system takes minimal space on the lab bench and is easy to carry and set up. Operation is also fast, with no centrifugation required. An economical option that helps increase lab productivity, the Mini480 allows users to fill up to eight wells at a time with the unit’s multi-channel pipette.

QuickGene Auto240L Membrane

Patented porous membrane for high-yield, high-purity isolation

The nucleic acid adsorptive medium used in the QuickGene Mini480 system is a porous membrane developed through application of advanced polymer membrane production technology. It is only 80 μm thick, making it incomparably thinner than conventional glass fibers. Because of the outstanding adsorptive and desorptive performances of the membrane, nucleic acid can be rapidly and reliably isolated at low pressure without being damaged, which realizes high-quality nucleic acid isolation.
