chemagic™ Prime Junior instrument

The chemagic™ Prime Junior instrument for automated RNA and DNA isolation

The chemagic™ Prime™ Junior instrument: Streamlined workflow from primary sample to DNA and RNA isolation to assay setup

Designed with flexibility in mind – The chemagic Prime Junior instrument enables a streamlined workflow from primary sample to ready to use nucleic acids. Eluate handling such as transfer to storage tubes is included, moreover some deckspace is reserved to fulfill further automation needs in PCR/NGS/Assay setup. It is dedicated for automated RNA and DNA isolation from all related sample materials like blood, plasma, saliva, urine, swabs, feces. Reveal what‘s possible in next generation of automation. Flexibly run between 1 to 48 samples (24 per batch) of 200 - 1000 µl body fluids without any waste of reagents.

Fully automated RAN and DNA extraction

Workflow features

  • Barcode reading ensures full sample traceability
  • Automated sample handling eliminates user related variabilities
  • M-PVA Magnetic Bead based nucleic acid extraction with preinstalled protocols
  • Optimized kits bearing quality, recovery rate and speed in mind
  • User-friendly interface and status lights for easy operation
  • Deckspace reserved to fulfill automation needs in PCR/NGS/Assay setup
Fully automated RAN and DNA extraction

Supported applications

  • Genomic DNA and RNA isolation from blood, cells, saliva and tissue for biobanking
  • Isolation of viral/bacterial nucleic acids from serum/plasma pools
  • Processing body fluids for research applications
  • Extraction of high molecular weight DNA for long range sequencing
  • Isolation of DNA from various samples for microbiome analysis

The use of the chemagic™ technology ensures efficient isolation of high-quality nucleic acids.


Bearing quality, recovery rates and speed in mind the chemagic Prime Junior runs with dedicated nucleic acid extraction kits that were developed to support either genome research or applications that require viral or bacterial nucleic acids as starting point. Preinstalled protocols allow convenient operation. Due to reserved deckspace and pipetting capabilities PCR setup and sequencing kit adaptions are available on request.
