Automated Nucleic Acid Extraction and Purification
ADS BIOTEC offers the most advanced and state-of-the-art technology in nucleic acid isolation automation.
Nucleic acid extraction and purification becomes quick and easy when using a QuickGene Nucleic Acid Isolation System. The purification technology is based on the use of a proprietary porous polymer membrane that is built into purification cartridges. Lysates, wash buffers, and elution buffers are driven through the membrane by centrifugation (spin column format), or by a positive air pressure method. The positive pressure method can be set up for manual operation on the QuickGene Mini480 (200 µL blood, 1-48 preps), or the QuickGene Mini8L (2 mL blood; 1-8 preps), automated using the QuickGene Auto12S(200 µL blood, 1-12 preps), QuickGene Auto24S(200 µL blood, 1-24 preps), or fully automated using the QuickGene Auto240L(2 mL blood, 1-24 samples). Nucleic acid isolation from twenty-four 2-ml blood samples can be processed within one hour when using the Automated QuickGene-Auto240L.
The QuickGene Auto240L – IVD when used in combination with the QuickGene DNA Whole Blood Kit L – IVD is intended for use as an in vitro diagnostic (IVD) medical device to perform automated DNA extraction from whole blood. The isolated DNA is suitable for use in amplification based in vitro diagnostic assays.
Kits for preparing lysates extracting nucleic acids from mammalian, fish, insect, plant, and fungal tissues are also available.
Key advantages of using the QuickGene Nucleic Acid Isolation System include:
• Quick processing time
• High yield
• High purity
• Conservation of nucleic acid integrity
• Ease of use
