The Maxwell® RSC DNA FFPE Kit is used with the Maxwell® RSC Instruments to provide an easy method for efficient, automated purification of genomic DNA (gDNA) from mammalian formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue samples. The kit does not require the use of hazardous organic solvents, such as xylene, ensuring a safer protocol for FFPE DNA extraction than other common methods.
The Maxwell® RSC Instrument can process from 1 to 16 samples and the Maxwell® RSC 48 can process from 1 to 48 samples in a single run. The Maxwell® RSC Instruments are supplied with preprogrammed purification procedures and are designed for use with predispensed reagent cartridges, maximizing simplicity and convenience. Purified DNA is suitable for direct use in a variety of amplification-based downstream applications.
The Maxwell® Multi-Pack (Cat.# ASB1450) provides the Maxwell® Plungers in a 50/pk bag format and is not compatible with the Maxprep™ Liquid Handler for automated sample preprocessing.
