The Maxwell® 16 Cell Low Elution Volume (LEV) DNA Purification Kit automatically extracts genomic DNA from sample types inherently low in cell number such as amniotic fluid, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) and cell culture supernatants. Purified genomic DNA can be easily obtained with samples containing less than 10,000 cells. The Maxwell® 16 LEV format delivers a final DNA concentration that minimizes the need for processing of the extract prior to amplification.
Used in combination with the Maxwell® 16 Instrument, the Maxwell® 16 Cell LEV DNA Purification Kit produces highly pure gDNA in about 30 minutes, instantly improving time to results. The Maxwell® 16 Instrument is supplied with preprogrammed purification procedures and is designed for use with prefilled reagent cartridges, maximizing simplicity and convenience.
The Maxwell® 16 System provides the easiest sample purification, assuring confidence in results and reducing the likelihood of time-consuming rework.
- Process up to 16 samples in about 30 minutes.
- High-quality genomic DNA provides better performance in downstream applications.
- Consistent high yield from difficult samples; easily extract DNA from less than 10,000 cells.
Purified DNA can be used directly in a variety of downstream applications such as real-time PCR, gel analysis for detection of genetic toxicology and real-time molecular typing for specific isolates that require reporting (epidemiology).
