"I love it!"
Robotic workstation for fully automated nucleic acid preparation and filling of LightCycler® Capillaries, 96-well PCR plates, and tubes suitable for the most commonly used PCR instruments
The MagNA Pure LC Instrument is a tabletop instrument for rapid, cross-contamination-free preparation of nucleic acids, and PCR setup. A completely closed housing, automatic clot and tip loss detection, as well as sample tracking make the MagNA Pure LC Instrument a true “walk-away” instrument. Filtration, centrifugation, and other manual steps are completely eliminated. No vacuum pumps or tubing are required. With the piston-driven 8-channel nozzle head and positive-displacement liquid handling, the risk of cross-contamination is reduced to an absolute minimum. UV decontamination and the HEPA-filter system ensure maximum safety for samples and the environment. The inside of the housing can be easily cleaned with commonly used disinfectants. The MagNA Pure LC Software supports a bar-code reader and bar-code printer, as well as a pager so that the user can be notified about the status of the instrument and isolation processes.
