The Maxwell® CSC RNA Blood Kit is intended for use as an in vitro diagnostic (IVD) medical device, in combination with the Maxwell® CSC Instrument, to provide an easy method for efficient, automated purification of RNA from 2.5ml fresh human whole blood collected in EDTA tubes. The kit uses predispensed reagent cartridges to maximize simplicity and convenience and reduce variability.
The Maxwell® CSC Instrument is preprogrammed with the purification method and can process up to 16 samples in approximately 60 minutes. The purified RNA can be used directly in a variety of amplification-based downstream applications, such as RT-PCR.
