Promega offers automated and manual viral RNA extraction reagents and systems to support laboratories developing assays and researching the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Our scalable nucleic acid extraction solutions accommodate a wide range of sample throughput needs, from single samples to high-volume processing with liquid handling robotic systems. Additionally, we offer consultative support to help labs implement or customize their sample extraction workflow.
Automated Benchtop Viral Nucleic Acid Extraction
Maxwell® RSC and CSC Instruments are used together with Maxwell® Viral Total Nucleic Acid Purification Kits to extract viral nucleic acids from up to 48 samples per run. See the Application Notes provided below for example protocols.
The Maxwell® 48 Instruments and the Maxwell® Viral Total Nucleic Purification Kit are authorized RNA purification options in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Influenza SARS-CoV-2 (Flu SC2) Multiplex Assay and the CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, available through the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).

When you’re facing a sudden spike in sample throughput demand combined with unprecedented urgency, the challenges of scaling up nucleic acid isolation can often become overwhelming. If you are new to automation, pressed for time or need help choosing and adapting a viral nucleic acid purification chemistry, we can help.
Promega Field Support Scientists (FSS) are available to help labs implement or optimize automation of viral RNA extraction methods, regardless of the instrumentation platform used.
Our goal is to help you get up and running—and processing samples— faster.
We can help you develop and implement an automated nucleic acid purification solution on the instrumentation platform of your choice and customize the workflow to the needs of your laboratory. See the Application Notes below for example protocols with various liquid handlers.
“We can answer questions about any instrument and application based on our experiences with the different platforms available in the market.”
To set up a new automated nucleic acid purification system or scale an existing workflow successfully, the chemistry and liquid handler must be perfectly integrated. We provide chemistry and instrumentation expertise, as well as access to R&D or applications experts who will work with you to configure your instrument and optimize the chemistry to meet your needs.
