Maxwell HT 96 gDNA Blood Isolation System
The Maxwell HT 96 gDNA Blood Isolation System provides a simple and reliable method for the rapid isolation of gDNA in a multiwell format. gDNA may be purified from blood and Oragene-Discovery sample collection devices. The purified gDNA can be used directly in PCR assays, microarrays and next-generation sequencing applications. The use of paramagnetic particles for DNA capture eliminates the need for centrifugation or vacuum manifolds, making the system suitable for full automation. In addition, the system does not require an organic solvent, making it safe and convenient. DNA yields of up to 12ug are expected from input blood volumes of 350ul, depending on the WBC count of the sample. Saliva samples can have variable amounts of gDNA, and up to 18ug or more of DNA may be recovered from a 700ul Oragene collection device sample.
