The isolation of viral RNA and DNA or microbial DNA is often tedious for routine laboratories, as different starting materials require alternative purification methods. The molecular diagnostic market demands extraction methods that are adaptable on automation platforms, and reliable in terms of pathogen DNA/RNA detection1. Moreover, the purification process needs to be suitable for a wide variety of sample materials.
MACHEREY-NAGEL and Tecan have partnered to deliver a tailored solution for high throughput extraction of viral RNA and DNA, and microbial DNA from clinical sample materials. The NucleoMag Pathogen procedure has been implemented on the Freedom EVO 150 system to automate the nucleic acid purification workflow, offering:
• Excellent recovery of nucleic acids from
diverse clinical sample material
• Carrier RNA, proteinase K, and ready-to-use
buffers allowing you to start right away
• Tailored protocol for processing variable
