    Maintain Electronic Records Easily

    Maxwell® CSC makes maintaining electronic records easy with complete tracking of every run and reports that are portable and LIMS-compatible. The instrument meets the 21 CFR Part 11 requirements for electronic records (user authentication and authorization, data integrity and protection, electronic signatures and audit trails) when used with the appropriate laboratory workflow.


    Fewer cross-contamination worries with a paramagnetic particle mover

    The Maxwell® CSC is a magnetic particle mover, not a liquid handler. It delivers minimal risk of cross-contamination because no liquid handling or splashing happens during processing of the samples.
