MagCore® Compact is RBC Bioscience's mini automated workstation for fast and economical purification of nucleic acids from a diverse range of sample sources. In terms of its literal meaning of “Compact” , all basic and necessary functions are crammed and equipped to meet the requirements of customers who take care of the small number of samples during a day.
MagCore® reagent cartridges are pre-sealed incorporating all reagents needed for the purification process. No additional reagents are required and no handling is necessary. Pre-filled and sealed buffer cartridge and automated piercing step eliminate possible contamination or buffer spout. Patented Heating Well and Separation Well in the cartridge provide strong circulate force for Binding/Washing steps and give high purity in final eluate. The MagCore® beads are pre-allocated into each cartridge in Well 4. Mixing of the beads, reagents and sample is achieved by the liquid handling action of the instrument. Separation is achieved by magnetic attraction and liquid handling.
MagCore® Nucleic Acid Extraction Kits contain all reagents and consumables needed for 36, 72 and 96 nucleic acid isolation reactions. The consumables consist of reagent cartridges, individually packaged tip sets, sample tubes and elution tubes.
