LABGENE-96 is an automated device based on magnetic bead purification technology, for purifying DNA, RNA, proteins and cells from a variety of sample types such as body fluids, cells or tissue. This system enables high-speed, high-quality processing with no cross-contamination between the samples or reagent carry-over.
LABGENE-96 extraction robot is designed to meet the requirements for nucleic acid purification with high efficiency and purity.
The magnetic beads provide a high surface area for binding. The use of LABGENE-96 with magnetic beads allows for the uniform distribution of the beads in the buffers. The robot uses a 96-rod magnetic head in order to move the nucleic acids along with the magnetic beads through the different extraction steps : lysis, binding, washing, and elution.
This technique considerably limits sample and reagent cross-contamination thanks to the automated distribution of liquids. The robustness of the LABGENE-96 is guaranteed by the stability of its magnetic head. The comb holder protects the head from instrument vibrations. Operator security is ensured thanks to a safety which automatically stops powering the device if the cover is opened.
A wide range of kits and protocols is available for use on the LABGENE-96.
LABGENE-96 uses polypropylene consumables suited to extraction and purification with magnetic beads. Thanks to their low binding affinity for biomolecules, these consumables allow for the efficient homogenisation and collection of magnetic beads :
|Comb to protect the magnetic head
|96-well plate for the steps of lysis, binding and washing
|96-well plate for the elution step
|Maximum number of samples / cycle
|Collection efficiency of magnetic beads
