Automated nucleic acid extraction and purification
Omnia is an excellent platform for automated extraction of DNA and RNA from different biological samples, liquid or solid.
Nucleic acid extraction and purification are critical processes, which affect the quality of the subsequent molecular diagnostic tests. Therefore, they require extreme accuracy, especially in some steps: for example, disruption of tissue samples; cell lysis; removal of contaminants such as proteins, lipids or carbohydrates; elution of DNA or RNA.
Omnia automates all steps guaranteeing high yield and purity of nucleic acids and absence of cross-contamination. The workstation is based on the magnetic separation technique featuring a magnetic tool with 8/16 or 12/24 magnets. Equipped with a thermoshaker, it can run automated lysis of solid samples too.
Omnia is particularly suited to optimise workflow in medium-throughput diagnostic laboratories: it can process from 1 to 24 samples simultaneously in 40 to 100 minutes. Sample starting volume and nucleic acid elution volume can be customised.
