Integrated semi-

automated system

Kit adopters for Sigma, Qiagen, Promega, Macherey Nagel, Invitek PureGene® kits

Solid-phase extraction (DNA bound to glass fibres, column washing steps) Solid-phase extraction

Depends on chemistry (bench top unit + vacuum station)

Liquid-phase genomic DNA purification over protein + DNA


10 x 96/day

1-10 ml

96/~2h requires user intervention about every 15 min 96/1 h

Manual addition of reagents; quite lab-intensive; problem of clogged wells; extraction size very low by low DNA yielda

Complete sample tracking with bar codes + complete chain of custody

To prevent cross-contamination the rods are shielded in plastic tips; performed very well; bar coding with integrated robot; instrument can cope with small + large sample volumes0 Conveniently packaged foil-sealed cartridges; built in bar-code system for samples + reagents; UV lamp inside for decontamination; good DNA results0

Predispensed, ready-to-use extraction reagents in conveniently packaged foil-sealed cartridges; no bar-coding facility; upgrade in near future; good DNA resultsob Good DNA results; UV lamp inside for decontamination; no detectable cross-contamination; no bar-coding facility; upgrade in near future Predispensed, ready-to-use extraction reagents in disposable cartridges, swabs or card punches were preprocessed; no detectable cross-contamination
