The Maxwell® CSC RNA FFPE Kit is intended for use, in combination with the Maxwell® CSC Instrument and the Maxwell® CSC RNA FFPE purification method, as an in vitro diagnostic (IVD) medical device to perform automated isolation of RNA from human breast, lung and colon FFPE (formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded) tissue samples. The purified RNA is suitable for use in amplification-based in vitro diagnostic assays. 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 under 50 minutes. The purified RNA can be used directly in a variety of amplification-based downstream applications, such as RT-PCR.
