Maelstrom™ Switch 8
Automated DNA/RNA Extraction System
Revolutionizing Magnetic Bead Handling
Automated nucleic acid extraction system.
The Maelstrom™ Switch 8 uses patented magnetic beads, spin tips and reagent kits technologies, consisting of three major processes: isolation, purification and concentration.
Run 1 to 16 samples per run
Automation of complicated manual steps
The rotary mixing technology reduces the extraction time
Can extract DNA/RNA from various sample types
The purified nucleic acid can be used with any downstream applications employing PCR-based qualitative, semi-quantitative and quantitative assays
Principle of Nucleic Acid Extraction
Step 1: Activate beads
Step 2: Mix sample with Lysis Buffer
Step 3: Mix sample with beads
Step 4: Wash bead-DNA from #2 ~ #5 well
Step 5: Elute DNA
Step 6: Release beads
