The QIAsymphony SP makes automated sample preparation easy and convenient. Samples, reagents and consumables, and eluates are separated in different drawers. Simply load samples, proteinase K, reagents provided in special cartridges, and preracked consumables in the appropriate drawer before a run. Start the protocol and remove purified DNA from the “Eluate” drawer after processing. Refer to the user manuals supplied with your instrument for operating instructions.
The purification procedure is designed to ensure safe and reproducible handling of potentially infectious samples, and comprises 3 steps: bind, wash, and elute (see figure “ QIAsymphony DSP Circulating DNA procedure.”). The user can choose between different sample input volumes.
