  • Application Area: Clinical Use for Genetics Laboratory

"I work in a Molecular Genetics laboratory, and we were in need of an extraction platform that resulted in pure DNA at fairly high concentrations (on a consistent basis). We also wanted that platform to allow for high throughput. The chemagic is a great solution for our needs. During the validation process, we discovered that the DNA yield was higher for the chemagic than it was for most of our other extraction processes. The purity is consistently very good, and the processing time is fairly fast. I like that if the 96-rod head doesn't produce DNA at a high enough yield, we can swap out the 96-rod head for a 24-rod head. We can utilize the same instrument but with different rod heads when we require different concentrations of DNA. The instrument is easy to use, but there are a few MINOR things I would recommend to PerkinElmer. The lysis buffer is light sensitive, but they don't provide a light sensitive bottle, protective encasing for the lysis buffer (which is attached to the ins"

  • Application Area:Perform extractions for Sequencing Infectious Disease testing

"Ease of use - The chemagic MSM I is very simple to use. We have not had any major problems with the instrument. It would be nice if the instrument deck had an engineering design that would prevent the possibility of plates being placed onto the instrument in the wrong orientation. After Sales Care - Deidre has been very prompt to reply to my emails if I have any concerns or questions which is always appreciated. We are essentially a 24/7 laboratory and it would be helpful to have instrument service around the clock, including weekends and holidays. Value for Money - We rarely have run failures due to instrument problems which is wonderful because performing Sanger sequencing is very costly and patient sample is precious. My only suggestion would be to have additional reagent dead volume built into the kits for liquid handler use."

"This product has been a great replacement for our previous extraction platform. It has the high throughput capability that we were really looking for. I really appreciate the company's response in troubleshooting different issues or when one of the instruments goes down. The two complaints that the staff have with the MSMI is the inability to extract heparin samples and the QC of the kits. Any sample that is in heparin must be extracted on a different platform which disrupts our workflow and we often experience reagent kits that have varying levels of washes, beads, deep well blocks etc."

  • Application Area:High throughput DNA extraction

"Can extract up to 96 blood samples at a time. Quality is good overall as long as fresh samples are used for extraction. Very good after sales care, always reply to inquiries promptly."

Based on PerkinElmer patented magnetic bead technology the chemagic Magnetic Separation Module I (chemagic MSM I) is an ideal solution for isolating nucleic acid from a variety of sample materials (e.g. blood, plasma, saliva).

The instrument is used with a chemagic Rod Head chosen to support your throughput and sample volume requirements. chemagic Rod Heads are available for medium or high throughput DNA/RNA isolation using sample volumes from 10 μl - 10 ml. To meet automation needs, the system can be extended with chemagic QA Software and the chemagic Dispenser. These allow LIMS-compatible bar code reading/sample tracking and automated buffer filling for all volume applications. Due to its modular set up, the chemagic MSM I can be integrated with standard liquid handling units. It represents the ideal solution in a huge variety of research market segments including, but not limited to, Biobanking/Human Genetics, HLA Typing, Virus and Bacteria Detection.

 

Features:

  • Sample volumes from 10 μl - 10 ml
  • High throughput
  • Huge kit portfolio
