Maxwell® 16 Viral Total Nucleic Acid Purification Kit Technical Bulletin
Literature # TB385
The Maxwell® 16 Viral Total Nucleic Acid Purification Kit is an easy method for efficient, automated purification of viral total nucleic acid from 1 to 16 samples. The kit is used with the Maxwell® 16 Instrument configured with the low elution volume (LEV) hardware. The low elution volume of 50µl results in more concentrated purified nucleic acid for downstream applications such as quantitative PCR or quantitative RT-PCR. The Maxwell® 16 Instrument is supplied with preprogrammed purification procedures and uses prefilled reagent cartridges, maximizing simplicity and convenience. After brief initial lysis the sample is added to the Maxwell® 16 cartridge, and the remaining processing is fully automated. The Maxwell® 16 Instrument purifies high-quality viral total nucleic acid from 100µl, 200µl or 300µl of plasma or serum.
