Maxwell 16 Viral Total Nucleic Acid Purification System
The Maxwell 16 IVD Viral Total Nucleic Acid Purification System complies with EU Directive 98/79/EC on in vitro diagnostic medical devices and is designed for automated extraction of viral total nucleic acid (RNA and DNA) from serum and plasma using the Maxwell 16 Instrument. These sample types are commonly processed in molecular microbiology or virology areas of molecular diagnostics. The kit contains all the necessary reagents in a convenient prefilled cartridge format. The simple protocol involves three main steps. First, lysis buffer and proteinase K are mixed to prepare a lysis solution. Second, lysis solution is mixed with sample. Third, the lysate is added into the cartridges. Purified viral total nucleic acids are ready for analysis in approximately 45 minutes.
