Nucleic Acid Purification System

Our modular nucleic acid preparation solutions let you adapt your laboratory workflow as your needs change. You can combine the Maxprep™ Liquid Handler with the Maxwell® Instruments for automated sample preparation to create a virtual assembly line in your laboratory.

Robotic DNA extraction with the Maxprep Liquid Handler and the Maxwell RSC48 Instrument

The Maxprep™ Liquid Handler Comes With All the Methods Provided

From sample preprocessing to post-purification applications, the Maxprep™ Liquid Handler easily integrates wherever you need it in your laboratory workflow.

Robotic DNA extraction is easy with the Maxprep and Maxwell instruments for a complete workflow solution

No Programming Required

The Maxprep™ Liquid Handler comes with all the methods preloaded. The easy-to-use software interface means anyone in your lab will be able to quickly run samples using the preprogrammed protocols, and that means no methods to create or protocols to write.

Simplified Sample Preprocessing

The Maxprep™ Liquid Handler easily integrates wherever you need it in your laboratory workflow with preloaded methods for processing samples for nucleic acid extraction with your Maxwell®  Instrument. In addition, you can prepare extracted samples for downstream applications such as amplification reactions. The Maxprep™ Liquid Handler ensures that every sample is handled the same way every time.


Intuitive Post-Extraction Protocols

After nucleic acid purification on your Maxwell® Instruments, use the preloaded post-extraction methods on the Maxprep™ Liquid Handler for nucleic acid quantitation, dye addition, normalization, eluate transfers and amplification reaction setup.

Flexible, Automated Nucleic Acid Purification

The Maxwell® Instruments work with a variety of sample types, including human blood, cells and tissues. With fast and easy protocols, prefilled cartridges and preprogrammed methods, you get reliable and consistent nucleic acid purification with the flexibility to process only the sample number you need. You can process anywhere from 1 to 48 samples with the Maxwell® Instruments.

The Maxwell RSC48 Instrument

Add Automated Sample Processing to Your Workflow

The Maxprep™ Liquid Handler works with the Maxwell® Instruments you already have in your lab. Build a modular system for a complete, automated sample processing workflow. Modules can all be connected to Portal Access software to share information.

qPCR curves



Using prefilled cartridges and preprogrammed methods reduces the potential for user error. Purified nucleic acids are compatible with a wide range of downstream applications such as PCR, qPCR, Sanger and next generation sequencing (NGS), micro arrays and digital PCR.

Automated sample tracking and processing



Automating nucleic acid extraction frees up your time. The integrated quantitation eliminates the need to re-enter sample IDs and creates a streamlined, simple sample tracking report that easily exports to your laboratory notebook.

Easy-to-use software



Maxwell® software is so easy to use and intuitive that you’ll be able to set up and perform your first run in a matter of minutes after initial instrument setup.

Integrated vision system



The large LED Indicator provides visual run status and an integrated vision system on the Maxwell® RSC48  Instrument detects proper cartridge setup and further reduces the potential for user error.

Keep Track of Your Samples through Every Step

Create a virtual purification assembly line, preparing Maxwell® cartridges on the Maxprep™ Liquid Handler and purifying them using your Maxwell® Instruments. You can place your instruments anywhere in the laboratory and sample tracking information will be communicated from one device to the next. Simply transfer the Maxwell® deck tray from one instrument to the next and all the sample information will be ready for you to process.

Maxprep and maxwell instruments provide a complete workflow solution for pre-processing,  automated DNA extraction and post-processing

Sample Tracking

The Maxprep™ Liquid Handler automatically scans the sample bar codes as they are placed into the instrument. Once you scan the desired Maxwell®  Kit and the bar code on the Maxwell® Deck Trays, the Promega Portal software does the rest. Portal monitors where each sample is placed in the Deck Tray, what Maxwell® kit was used, and passes this information directly to the Maxwell®  Instrument for walk-up extraction.

Increased Traceability

The Promega Portal software tracks samples as they move from one module to the next. The Portal software automatically shares sample IDs and recommends protocols for next steps as you move from one module to the next. Portal Access software provides browser-based access to the sample tracking, run and concentration data present in Portal software.

Service and Support

Our instruments are backed by a comprehensive standard warranty, expert service and a full line of additional service products. With a comprehensive menu of service and support options, you can be confident that your equipment will be working properly and ready when you need it. Installation Qualification (IQ), Operational Qualification (OQ) and Preventive Maintenance (PM) services ensure that your instrument is fully functional and provide documentation that the instrument is operating to defined specifications.

The Maxprep™ Liquid Handler is installed by qualified Promega personnel who will test the instrument, document installation actions and train lab personnel to successfully operate the instrument.

All instruments are backed by a complete service and support system
