Literature # TM320

The Maxwell® 16 MDx Instrument provides automated nucleic acid purification methods for multiple analytes. The methods use sample lysis and binding to paramagnetic particles as the primary separation principle. It has two modes for different elution volumes. The Standard Elution Volume (SEV) mode allows elution in a volume of up to 400μl. The Low Elution Volume (LEV) mode allows elution in as little as 25μl. Up to 16 samples can be prepared in a single run.
