Simple and Efficient Total Nucleic Acid Extraction from a Broad Range of Sample Types for In Vitro Diagnostic Testing of Pathogens​

maxwell-csc

The Maxwell® CSC Pathogen Total Nucleic Acid Kit, used with the Maxwell® CSC Instruments, is designed for automated, benchtop extraction and purification of total nucleic acid from stool, sputum, bronchoalveolar lavage, plasma, urine, universal or viral transport media containing nasopharyngeal swabs, and Pap media containing cervical swabs. The extracted total nucleic acid is ready to use in a variety of amplification-based in vitro diagnostic assays to test for human pathogens like bacteria, viruses and parasites. The Maxwell® CSC Instrument can process up to 16 samples, and the Maxwell® CSC 48 Instrument can process up to 48 samples, in parallel with the simple touch of a button. The preprogrammed Pathogen Total Nucleic Acid method on the Maxwell® CSC Instruments enables extraction of total nucleic acid from different sample types simultaneously in a single extraction run, maximizing laboratory time and efficiency.

The Maxwell® CSC Pathogen Total Nucleic Acid Kit protocol involves three main steps:

  1. Prepare sample lysate using simple sample-specific protocols.
  2. Add the prepared sample lysate to the Maxwell® CSC Cartridge (CSCQ) and mix with the binding buffer already present in the first well.
  3. Load the prepared Maxwell® CSC Cartridge (CSCQ) on the Maxwell® CSC or Maxwell® CSC 48 Instrument for automated extraction of high-quality total nucleic acid in less than 40 minutes.

The Maxwell® CSC Pathogen Total Nucleic Acid Kit contains all the required reagents along with convenient, prefilled cartridges for total nucleic acid extraction from all the supported sample types. A range of sample input amounts can be used for extraction, and the 100µl elution volume results in concentrated total nucleic acid. The Maxwell® CSC Pathogen Total Nucleic Acid Kit offers clinical laboratories an easy-to-use platform solution with built-in flexibility for consistent and reliable total nucleic acid extraction from different sample types for a variety of in vitro diagnostic workflows such as PCR, qPCR and RT-qPCR assays.

Maxwell® CSC Pathogen Total Nucleic Acid Kit is currently available in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Latvia, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States.

The Maxwell® CSC Pathogen Total Nucleic Acid Kit, used with the Maxwell® CSC Instruments, extracts total nucleic acid from a range of diverse sample types. The Maxwell® CSC Pathogen Total Nucleic Acid Kit works with a variety of sample types including stool (Panels A and B), sputum (Panel C), bronchoalveolar lavage (Panel C), plasma (Panel D), universal transport media (UTM; Panel E) or viral transport media (VTM; Panel F) containing nasopharyngeal swabs, Pap media containing cervical swabs (Panel G) and urine (Panel H). All sample types were spiked with known quantities of inactivated pathogens as indicated, and total nucleic acid was extracted from each specimen (n=8) using the Maxwell® CSC Pathogen Total Nucleic Acid Kit. Undiluted total nucleic acid extracted from each sample type and its tenfold dilution were used in a qPCR assay specific for the appropriate pathogen target. The extracted total nucleic acid shows no detectable inhibition in amplification-based assays for pathogen detection.


TNA Extraction from sputum on Maxwell CSC vs Maxwell CSC 48

The Maxwell® CSC Pathogen Total Nucleic Acid Kit shows equivalent performance with both the Maxwell® CSC and Maxwell® CSC 48 Instruments. Total nucleic acid extracted from sputum specimens (n=8) using either a Maxwell® CSC or Maxwell® CSC 48 Instrument showed comparable results in RT-qPCR targeting SARS-CoV-2.
