chemagic™ 360 instrument: Automated DNA and RNA purification

The chemagic 360 instrument for automated DNA and RNA extraction

The chemagic™ 360 instrument: a compact solution for automated DNA and RNA purification

The genomic analysis of large numbers of samples requires a reliable system for the automated isolation of DNA and RNA. With dimensions of only 80 x 80 cm and its unique sample volume flexibility, the chemagic™ 360 instrument is an innovative system that can be adapted to fit almost all of your automated DNA and RNA purification needs. By using chemagen's well-established M-PVA Magnetic Bead technology, the chemagic™ 360 instrument provides high yields of ultra-pure nucleic acids suitable for a wide range of downstream applications such as NGS, MLPA, genotyping, and PCR.

Features at a glance

  • Easy to integrate with liquid handling platforms


The exclusive chemagic™ technology for nucleic acid purification

Unlike other automated nucleic acid purification instruments, the chemagic™ 360 system uses transiently magnetized rods to attract the beads after binding to the nucleic acids. This key technological feature and the concerted rotation of the rods allow optimal sample mixing during the homogenization and washing steps, increasing the yield and purity of the extracted nucleic acid molecules. The transfer of the magnetic beads between tubes minimizes the possibility of sample contamination between purification steps.

Instrument specifications

Equipped with barcode-reader and QA software, the chemagic 360 instrument complies with LIMS compatibility and modern quality assurance standards. The modular set up of the system and convenient loading procedure allow its integration with standard liquid handling robots, such as the Janus® or Sciclone®. Kits are available for the isolation of DNA and RNA from various specimens including liquid (whole blood, saliva, plasma, etc.) and solid samples (tissues, FFPE samples, etc.). For research use only. We also offer an IVD-certified* version of the chemagic™ 360 instrument.
