Fully Automated Purification of Viral Nucleic Acids
18 December 2013
Detection of viral pathogens using artus PCR kits was combined with automated purification using the 3 BioRobot systems. Viral nucleic acids were purified using fully automated BioRobot EZ1, BioRobot M48, and BioRobot MDx systems. The purified nucleic acids were amplified and detected using artus PCR Kits on 3 different real-time PCR systems. In this application note, we demonstrate that the high quality of the purified nucleic acids and high performance of artus PCR Kits enables highly sensitive, specific, and reproducible detection.
