Maelstrom™ 9610 Automated DNA/RNA Extraction System

Revolutionizing Magnetic Bead Handling

Automated nucleic acid extraction system for high throughput applications.

  • Complete Entire Run Without Stopping

    • Push start and you're set for DNA/RNA extraction. No need to stop the automated extraction machine to complete extra steps, it is fully automated.​

  • Eliminate Cross Contamination 

    • Unlike other techniques, our mixing technology controls the speed via a rotary apparatus to avoid liquid splashing during the high throughput extraction process.  

  • Increase Processing Volume up to 60% 

    • Compared to conventional up and down binding techniques, the patented whirl spin mixing technology can increase the processing volume up to 1600µl, while reducing processing times. 

  • Pre-filled Reagent Kits

    • Forget purchasing extra plates, tip combs, beads and buffers. Get it all in our ready-to-use extraction kits.

  • No need for tools – simply power on the automated nucleic acid extraction instrument and it is ready to go.

  • Extraction programs are pre-loaded. Simply select the program required, follow the simple guide for the appropriate reagent, and the DNA extraction machine/RNA extraction machine is ready.

Automated nucleic acid extraction system


  • High throughput purification: 96 samples can be processed simultaneously.

  • High stirring efficiency with variable speeds. The rotary mixing technology reduces the extraction time by shortening the time for lysis and increasing the chance of the magnetic beads contacting and absorbing nucleic acid.
