  • Automated Benchtop Extraction of Viral Total Nucleic Acid

    The Maxwell® RSC Viral Total Nucleic Acid Purification Kit is designed for automated extraction of viral total nucleic acid (RNA and DNA) from serum, plasma or other samples using the Maxwell® RSC Instruments. These sample types are commonly processed in molecular microbiology or virology research areas. The kit works across a range of virus titers. The Maxwell® RSC Instrument can process from 1 to 16 samples and the Maxwell® RSC 48 can process from 1 to 48 samples in a single run. 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.

    Application

    Provides general-purpose viral total nucleic acid extraction from serum, plasma and other sample types. Purified nucleic acids may be used in applications such as qPCR and qRT-PCR.

    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.
