Qiagen QIAsymphony SP/AS Assay Setup & Sample Prep Module
ITEM: 32363 In Stock
The Qiagen QIAsymphony SP/AS Assay Setup & Sample Prep Module is a versatile nucleic acid purification instrument providing high-quality nucleic acids compatible with with most common downstream assay technologies, such as real-time PCR, digital PCR, and next generation sequencing (NGS). The large range of a dedicated QIAsymphony kits enables optimized purification of genomic DNA, cell-free circulating DNA, RNA, bacterial and viral nucleic acids from a wide range of starting materials. The QIAsymphony AS extends the capabilities of the QIAsymphony SP by integrating automated PCR assay setup, which, in combination with the Rotor-Gene Q and QIAGEN real-time and end-point PCR kits, enables the user to optimize your PCR workflow and maximize your efficiency.
The Qiagen QIAsymphony SP/AS Assay Setup & Sample Prep Module saves time by processing 1–96 samples — in batches of up to 24 — with sample volumes up to 10 ml. The dedicated range of optimized QIAsymphony kits and protocols guarantees best purification efficiency and nucleic acid quality and increases laboratory capabilities/flexibility with a single instrument.
The Qiagen QIAsymphony SP/AS Assay Setup & Sample Prep Module operating software guides the user step-by-step through setting up a sample preparation or assay setup run, with options to select and adapt standardized protocols. Required volumes of buffers, reagents, master mix, and controls are automatically calculated, and the user is informed of the number and type of consumables to be loaded. Transfer of sample loading information from the QIAsymphony SP to the QIAsymphony AS is convenient and reduces the number of steps required for assay definition.
