Automated Purification of Total Nucleic Acid from Viral Sample Types

Emergence of new viral diseases, including the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID 19), MERS (2015) and SARS (2003) outbreaks, highlight the need for fast methods to detect and identify target viruses at scale. The Maxwell® HT Viral TNA Kit can be used for high-throughput, automated extraction of RNA and DNA from several sample types, including universal transport medium, serum, plasma and others. Samples are processed in 96-well plates using magnetic separation. The Maxwell® HT purification kit can also be used in manual protocols using a multichannel pipettor.

Protocols are available for automated platforms and manual use. These are provided in the Application Notes linked below.


Inactivated HIV-1 (5,000IU/ml) and 500IU/ml of inactivated Hepatitis B virus (HBV) were isolated from a 300μl sample of human plasma using the Maxwell® HT Viral TNA chemistry automated on a Tecan Freedom EVO® and compared with performance of the Qiagen QIAamp® MinElute® kit. Quantitation was conducted using PathID™ RT-qPCR (HIV-1) and Plexor® RT-qPCR (HBV).
