  • Hands-Free Extraction of Viral Nucleic Acids from 1–16 Samples in 45 Minutes 

    The Maxwell® 16 Viral Total Nucleic Acid Purification Kit is used with the Maxwell® 16 Instrument to extract viral total nucleic acid (RNA and DNA) from serum or plasma samples. The kit contains all necessary reagents in convenient prefilled cartridges. 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. Purified nucleic acids are ready for use in applications such as qPCR and qRT-PCR.

     The Maxwell® System provides efficient processing and higher sample capacity than comparable systems, without detectable cross-contamination between samples, speeding sample processing and reducing rework. 

    Linear extraction of viral nucleic acid over 5 orders of magnitude of concentration.

    Maxwell® Cartridge Seal Change

    The seal length on Maxwell® Cartridges has changed to create a pull-tab feature. The manufacturing procedures and quality-control testing of products have not changed.
