The innovative QIAcube uses advanced technology to process QIAGEN spin columns, enabling seamless integration of automated, low-throughput sample prep into the laboratory workflow. All steps in the purification procedure are fully automated ? up to 12 samples can be processed per run.
The QIAcube is preinstalled with a variety of protocols for automated purification of RNA, genomic DNA, plasmid DNA, viral nucleic acids, and proteins, plus DNA and RNA cleanup. All processing steps are performed by the QIAcube ? from sample lysis to elution of highly pure nucleic acids or proteins. No change of chemistry is required, assuring fast startup and immediate results and performance is comparable to the manual procedure.
The standardized, automated purification procedure helps to eliminate human error, providing results that are comparable between experiments and labs, and giving you more time to focus on downstream analyses. The fully automated centrifuge, equipped with 12 swing-out buckets, eliminates manual centrifugation steps giving you more time for other tasks. Innovative disposable rotor adapters hold spin columns and collection tubes in the centrifuge and collect wash buffers during centrifugation. Highly pure nucleic acids or proteins are eluted into collection tubes, ready to use in sensitive downstream applications.
The range of protocols available is continually expanding, and additional QIAGEN protocols can be downloaded free of charge at www.qiagen.com/MyQIAcube. In addition, customized protocols tailored to meet your specific application demands can also be requested.
An integrated touch screen simplifies protocol selection and clear on-screen messages guide you through worktable setup. The QIAcube takes ease of use to a new level. No external PC is required, saving valuable laboratory space. The innovative QIAcube controls integrated components including a centrifuge, heated shaker, pipetting system, and robotic gripper. The QIAcube is highly suitable for academic research laboratories as well as pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and biomedical research laboratories.
