The chemagic™ Prime: fully automated nucleic acid purification

The chemagic Prime™ instrument

The chemagic Prime™ instrument for high-throughput automated DNA and RNA purification

The chemagic Prime™ instrument is a highly automated platform combining chemagen patented M-PVA Magnetic Bead technology for DNA and RNA purification with liquid handling to provide high-throughput automated isolation of ultra-pure nucleic acids. The liquid handling unit transfers the primary samples to plates suitable for automated nucleic acid purification which are in turn automatically loaded on the extraction deck. Eluates containing the purified DNA or RNA can then be used by the instrument for automated set up of PCR reactions, streamlining your genomic workflow.

Technology

The chemagic Prime™ exploits transiently rather than permanently magnetized rods to attract the beads after binding to the nucleic acids. This key technological feature, in combination with the concerted rotation of the rods, allows optimal sample mixing during the homogenization and washing steps, increasing the yield and purity of the extracted nucleic acid molecules.

Kits are available for the isolation of DNA and RNA from various human specimens such as whole blood, saliva, plasma, and many more. For more information about the chemagic Prime™, please download the brochure below or contact us.
