Extract high-quality nucleic acids with less hands-on time

The Maxwell® RSC 48 Instrument is a compact, automated nucleic acid purification platform that processes up to 48 samples simultaneously. Using Maxwell® RSC prefilled cartridges, the Maxwell® RSC 48 Instrument brings the same consistent, reliable purification of DNA or RNA from a variety of sample types and a higher throughput. The intuitive graphical interface makes the instrument easy to use. The integrated vision system with its large LED indicator reduces the potential for user error by detecting proper cartridge placement and lets you know before a run starts if there is an issue. An integrated Bar Code reader makes it easy to track samples.

No clogging worries with a paramagnetic particle mover

The Maxwell® RSC DNA or RNA extraction methods start with cartridges prefilled with purification reagents and paramagnetic particles, ready for your samples. After sample addition, the Maxwell® RSC moves the paramagnetic particles and associated nucleic acids through multiple steps ultimately yielding highly pure RNA or DNA in 30–100µl.

Because the Maxwell® RSC is a magnetic particle mover, not a liquid handler, it offers advantages over other automated systems. There is minimal risk of cross-contamination because no liquid handling or splashing happens during sample processing. With no clogs and fewer breakdowns, there are fewer disruptions to your workflow.
