The Maxwell® 16 Tissue DNA Purification Kit is used with the Maxwell® 16 Instrument to purify genomic DNA from up to 50mg tissue samples in 30–40 minutes. The Maxwell® 16 Instrument can process up to 16 samples per run. The purified DNA can be used directly in a variety of downstream applications including PCR, restriction enzyme digestion and agarose gel electrophoresis. The plunger action of the Maxwell® 16 Instrument grinds solid tissue samples directly in lysis buffer in the prefilled reagent cartridge. Integrated tissue grinding replaces the time and labor-intensive use of proteases or manual tissue grinding.
The Maxwell® System provides efficient processing and higher sample capacity than comparable systems, without detectable cross-contamination between samples, speeding sample processing and reducing rework.
