Our go to extractor!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: DNA and RNA extractions for molecular diagnostics

"The Kingfisher Flex is so user friendly that our lab bought a second one! Our 96 well platform allows for testing of 94 samples along with a negative and positive extraction control. The instrument ques the user to load the appropriate plate(s) in proper order of a programmed protocol. The closed system with a clear removable dome prevents dust/dirt from entering the testing site. The instrument can be decontaminated with a bactericidal/virucidal wipe."

Great little piece of automation.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:DNA/RNA extraction

"So far the simplicity and minimal amount of space that it takes up in the lab have been great. Also it seems to very adaptable to other magnetic bead extraction kits which is a big plus. The results so far have been very consistent and it has sped up the overall workflow significantly with operator variability removed from the equation."

Great results with this equipment, very easy to use product.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Viral RNA extraction for COVID-19 testing

"This product has been very useful to scale up our COVID-19 testing capacity. It's a very easy-to-use instrument which means that its implementation in the work flow of the lab was very fast. The quality of the genetic material purified with the product is very high, with no cross-contamination risk at all considering the type of biological samples that we are processing. The technical support received from Thermo scientific specialists after the purchase has been valuable and fast as well."

Ease of use makes this a vital piece of equipment to our lab.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Large quantity DNA/RNA extractions

"Overall this is a great machine that is used almost on a daily basis. The LED screen makes it easy to select and enter program protocols as well as guiding you how and where to load extractions plates. The timer is a bonus so you can monitor how much time is remaining with the extraction process."

Very integral part of our studies
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Nucleic Acid Isolation

"This instrument allows quick, efficient and consistent isolation of nucleic acids with any magnetic particle based protocol. Though most scripts are already represented, it is very easy to create custom scripts making the instrument very versatile. Saves us an enormous amount of time and money and the product is usable in all of our down stream assays."
