The instrument is highly suited for laboratories performing PCR and RT-PCR reactions with applications in:
The new QIAgility Setup Manager Software offers a complete solution for qPCR setup, sample normalization, CE loading, certain liquid handling, as well as sample pooling. The software includes Gene Expression, Pathogen Detection, Sample Pooling and Generic PCR plug-ins. The Gene Expression and Pathogen Detection plug-ins are optimized for use with QIAGEN gene expression and pathogen detection kits, such as QuantiNova, miRCURY and RT² kits. The Generic PCR plug-in allows flexible qPCR setup, liquid handling and support for the whole HID workflow.
Check the instrument operating software and protocol files under product resources for more information.

Pros: saves tips and therefore cost.
Cons: lowers accuracy and precision as liquid is built up on the inner and outer walls of the tip with each use.
The QIAsymphony system has an integrated UV lamp. UV decontamination should be performed daily. It helps to reduce possible pathogen contamination of the QIAsymphony SP/AS worktables. The efficiency of inactivation has to be determined for each specific organism and depends, for example, on layer thickness and sample type. QIAGEN cannot guarantee complete eradication of specific pathogens.
Vapor-Lock is fully compatible with the QIAgility instrument for high-precision, automated reaction setup. It is also highly suited for use with the Rotor-Gene Q cycler. For support to program your QIAgility instrument for use with Vapor-Lock, please contact your local QIAGEN Technical Support Department.
On the QIAgility, it takes about 36 minutes if using premade master mix, and 39 minutes if the instrument needs to prepare master mix from components.
Please navigate to the Product Page of the QIAsymphony Kit you are using; for example, the QIAsymphony RNA Kit, Cat No./ID: 931636. Refer to the resources tab and download the labware document. The labware document will list the sample tubes that have been tested for your application. Please contact Technical Service if you wish to use sample tubes not listed in the labware document.
