The IDEAL™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 the IDEAL™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 IDEAL™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.
The IDEAL™96 programs use universal DNA/RNA protocols, common to all sample types and pathogens : in the same test run, it is possible to extract DNA or RNA from multiple pathogens or sample types (biological fluids, swabs, cell culture, tissue lysats, soil, and faeces).
The IDEAL™96 allows to purify 96 samples in short times :
The IDEAL™96 is supplied with three pre-programmed protocols validated according to the French standard NF U47-600 for the detection of animal health pathogens by PCR.
Programs may be run directly from the instrument or via a computer : simply plug and play !
Controlling the robot from a computer requires no additional software : program the robot and create new protocols on-line.
IDEAL 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|
With the 24 magnet heads, it is possible to raise the processing volume up to 6 ml.
