The MagCore® HF16 is a simple, fast and cost-effective technique to automatically purify nucleic acids from a wide range of sample types for applications like gene expression analysis, clinical molecular diagnosis, human identity testing, forensics, and biomedical research :

  • Flexible design : 1-16 samples can be run without waste of resources
  • Simple procedure guaranteed by touch button operation
  • Rapid and reliable results in minimum 30 minutes (DNA purification)
  • Contamination free achieved with the use of prefilled reagents, disposables and integrated UV sterilization

The MagCore® HF16 System enables the parallel processing of up to 16 samples per run. With the pre-programmed protocols and magnetic bead based reagent cartridges, the system provides consistent and stable nucleic acid purification for every busy laboratory.

Cartridge design and extraction principle

MagCore® reagent cartridges are pre-sealed incorporating all reagents needed for the purification process. No additional reagents are required and no handling is necessary. Pre-filled and sealed buffer cartridge and automated piercing step eliminate possible contamination or buffer spout. Patented Heating Well and Separation Well in the cartridge provide strong circulate force for Binding/Washing steps and give high purity in final eluate. The MagCore® beads are pre-allocated into each cartridge in Well 4. Mixing of the beads, reagents and sample is achieved by the liquid handling action of the instrument. Separation is achieved by magnetic attraction and liquid handling.
