Maxwell® HT Nucleic Acid Purification
Your purification solution, simplified.
Our team of automation experts will help you choose an optimized high-throughput solution that meets your laboratory’s needs. We can implement Maxwell® HT chemistries on a variety of sample types and instrumentation platforms. Contact us for a consultation about choosing the right purification chemistry or customizing a purification chemistry for additional sample types.
Solutions at Any Scale
Maxwell® HT Systems allow purification of DNA or RNA at scale on any laboratory liquid handler in 24- or 96-well SLAS format. Maxwell® purification chemistries use novel magnetic particle-based solutions that naturally decrease contamination carryover.
In addition to trusted chemistry, you’ll gain expert support to get started with automation or optimize your current HT workflow. Our team of automation experts can offer assistance with most of the leading laboratory automation providers in the world and help you develop and implement an automated nucleic acid purification solution customized to the needs of your laboratory.

Case Study: Plasmid Prep
Innate Pharma develops therapeutic antibodies and part of the workflow requires processing many samples. They needed an automated process for plasmid preps that would work on a Tecan EVO system. In order to effectively transfect cells, the plasmid purification needed to be developed at a midiprep scale.
Our team helped the customer develop a protocol for their Tecan EVO 200 system that could automate plasmid preps from 30ml of bacterial culture and provide a return of >100μg of plasmid. After testing plasmid samples in the workflow, all of Innate Pharma’s criteria were met and the solution became part of their workflow.
Case Study: FFPE DNA Extraction
A customer who sequences FFPE samples from several types of cancers to study immuno-oncology, was experiencing a dramatic increase in the number of samples processed. Their manual FFPE kit could not keep up with demand and they wanted to reduce the probability of human error. They decided to automate sample processing on the KingFisher™ Flex in a 96-well format. They needed a purification system suitable for high throughput extraction that provided the highest yields of amplifiable DNA.
This customer initially tested the Maxwell® HT DNA FFPE Isolation System using a Maxwell® RSC Instrument and found that it gave the best performance in their sequencing workflow. Then our team developed a protocol for the 96-well KingFisher™ Flex and demonstrated performance in the customer’s lab. After running samples through their complete sequencing pipeline, the customer performed verification experiments and adopted the Maxwell® HT FFPE DNA Isolation System for their regular workflow.
