App. Package, M48, Pathology

For easy protocol setup with all protocols on one CD-ROM

  • Easy protocol setup for robust processing of paraffin sections
  • Optimized protocols help to ensure reliable purification
  • Range of protocols increases processing flexibility

The App. Package, M48, Pathology is a CD-ROM containing protocols for DNA purification from different amounts of paraffin-embedded tissues using the MagAttract DNA Mini M48 Kit on the BioRobot M48 workstation. These protocols provide operating commands for the workstation and allow easy setup through comprehensive, on-screen instructions.

Cat No./ID: 9016151
App. Package, M48, Pathology
Software protocol package for pathology applications on the BioRobot M48 workstation
The App. Package, M48, Pathology is intended for molecular biology applications. This product is not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
Performance

DNA yields depend on the sample type, number of nucleated cells in the sample, and the protocol used for isolation of DNA.

Principle

The BioRobot M48 and the MagAttract DNA Mini M48 Kit, with protocols on the App. Package, M48, Pathology, reproducibly automate purification of DNA from different amounts of paraffin-embedded tissues. Purification of 6–48 samples per run is efficient and purified DNA performs well in downstream analyses.

The BioRobot M48 system provides fully automated purification of DNA using silica-coated magnetic particles, eliminating the need for tedious centrifugation steps. The easy-to-use workstation allows purification of 6–48 samples in a single run. Between processing runs, the worktable can be decontaminated using an integrated UV lamp to reduce the chances of environmental contamination.
