Hands-Free RNA Extraction in Under an Hour
The Maxwell® 16 LEV simplyRNA Kits are used with the Maxwell® 16 Instrument configured with the LEV High Strength Magnetic Rod and Plunger Bar Adaptor. This RNA purification procedure is a simple method with minimal lysate handling before automated purification. A low elution volume is used to generate concentrated high-quality RNA suitable for use in downstream applications such as quantitative RT-PCR. The kit provides the reagents for processing the samples and uses prefilled cartridges for purification. The Maxwell® 16 Instrument can process from 1 to 16 samples in under an hour.
The Maxwell® 16 LEV simplyRNA Kits currently run only on the Maxwell® 16 Instrument (AS2000) configured with the Maxwell® 16 High Strength Magnetic Rod and Plunger Bar Adaptor, as well as Firmware Version 4.9. For Maxwell® 16 Instruments (AS2000) purchased before May 2011, contact your Promega representative for information on how to configure your instrument for use with the simplyRNA kits.
