gives you time for a tea


Average Rating 4.0

Application Area:

DNA extraction

Requires a fair bit of prep depending on the sample type.... but I'm sure that is the same for any automated extraction. Engineers come when needed, for the odd breakdown and service. Takes about 70 mins but reduces hands on time, letting you do something whilst samples are being extracted. Not as fast as some methods but still a helpful tool in the lab. Easy to use. Not exactly cheap to run though, but good for large runs.

Robust, high-throughput, easy to use system


Average Rating 4.0

Application Area:

Nucleic acid extraction

This semi-automated extraction system is easy to use and produces high quality nucleic acids at an adequate yield. It is durable and most problems we have observed are minor and easily remedied. Service is satisfactory.

Great results.


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

DNA Extraction

High quality DNA is achieved and the concentration is consistent!

Review Date: 1 Nov 2018 | Revvity

Still waiting for a better result.


Average Rating 3.3

Application Area:

DNA genomic analyses, including classic and next generation sequencing

It is very user-friendly. But it does not use primary tubes, i.e. the user has to pipette the protein kinase in each well and then add the blood manually, impairing a high quality tracking of samples. We are beginning to make our first extractions and still too many beads remain in the final DNA eluate. I mean they are visible giving rise to a pink-brownish solution. We have been told to centrifuge the DNA and change to a new DNA vial to take them out, and it works, but this will further increase the traceability of samples.

The chemagic 360 instrument is based on the well-established magnetic bead based chemagic Technology and the system offers a reliable solution for different sample materials and throughput needs. Configurable with three kinds of chemagic Rod Heads, the system can process sample volumes from 50 µl - 18 ml and the isolated DNA/RNA is suitable for a wide range of downstream applications such as NGS, MPLA, genotypic, and PCR.
