Automated nucleic acid extraction and PCR setup
48 SAMPLES – LOW THROUGHPUT
48 SAMPLES – HIGH THROUGHPUT
Speed and accuracy are the main benefits of Omnia, which automates nucleic acid extraction and PCR setup, with a capacity of up to 48 samples per run.
Omnia is an excellent platform for automated extraction of DNA and RNA from different biological samples, liquid or solid, because it guarantees 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, 12/24 or 48 magnets. It allows pipetting from primary sample tubes and customisation of sample volumes and elution volumes.
The same platform can automate all the phases of PCR, qPCR and RT-PCR setup, from preparing reaction mixes with reagents of different density, to dispensing. One or more cooling units can be installed to keep reagents or plates at desired temperature. The workstation is compatible with tubes, strips, and plates on custom adapters.
Omnia is equipped with integrated and external barcode scanners, which allow managing work lists from hospital admission, querying an internal database, tracking samples and reagents, exporting files for the most common thermal cyclers.
