Excellent results, but robustness of the machine has to be improved
Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area: DNA-prparation for parentage verifications

"Currently the most cost effective device on the market. Unfortunately, some problems persist on the machine: lifetime of the pipetting head is ridiculously low, at max one year; some position sensors are not permanently fix and have to be re-adjusted quite frequently; for unknown reasons, the tought positions are lost after some time of operation."

Consistent dependability and high throughput - a workhorse that runs our lab.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Plant DNA extraction

"The oKtopure is a high throughput DNA extraction robot. It is easy to use and very versatile. In combination with LGC's various extraction chemistries, DNA of various qualities can be extracted for different applications. The robot is easy to use and also doubles as a liquid handling instrument for replicating DNA plates, diluting or transferring liquids. We have had very few problems with our instrument, apart from maintaining the pipetting head, and use it daily."

Introducing the oKtopure - a fully automated DNA extraction instrument that enables a new level of high throughput processing and significant cost savings.

 

The oKtopure® is a robotic platform that combines standardised high throughput DNA extraction from plant tissue with the proprietary sbeadex® magentic bead based extraction chemistry. The oKtopure is part of our on-going programme to provide customers with high productivity solutions, first developed and optimised for use within our service labs, where every day we deliver Extraction, Sequencing and Genotyping services.

 

Key to the delivery of consistently high quality and high yield DNA preparations from the oKtopure is its ability to bind and hold the magnetic beads, and hence the DNA in place whilst transferring the buffers required for washing, binding and elution steps. The final aqueous wash used in the sbeadex extraction protocols enables the delivery of nucleic preparations ideal for downstream applications such as SNP genotyping and NGS and Sanger sequencing.

 

Features:

  • High throughput - capable of processing eight 96-well plates (768 samples) in approximately one-and-a-half hours
  • Robust tip washing system reduces consumable costs by 50% or more
  • Preloaded methods for different sample types – fully customizable

 

Extraction expertise and support from scientists who use the instrument daily and have been carrying out high throughput extractions since 1996!
