Product Details

EZ1 Instrument Test Cards provide protocols designed to evaluate the pipetting accuracy of EZ1 instruments. The EZ1 Advanced XL, EZ1 Advanced or BioRobot EZ1 pipets either 100 µl or 500 µl of water from one set of tubes to another. Pipetting accuracy should be within defined specifications of ±8 µl for 100 µl, corresponding to pipetted volumes in the range of 92–108 µl and ±40 µl for 500 µl, corresponding to pipetted volumes in the range of 460–540 µl. An additional protocol on EZ1 Instrument Test Cards describes how to test the tip adapters for liquid leaks.

FAQ

Is training of lab personnel included with the purchase of a BioRobot EZ1?

Operation of the BioRobot EZ1 is so easy that no additional training other than the initial demo is needed. Operating the instrument requires only three major steps:

  • Insert the appropriate EZ1 Protocol Card, switch on the workstation, and, if necessary, select the appropriate protocol
  • Follow the instructions on the liquid-crystal display (LCD), which describes where the sample tubes, elution tubes, filter tips, and EZ1 Reagent Cartridges must be loaded and which indicates when to start the protocol run
  • Collect purified nucleic acids when the protocol run ends

 

FAQ ID -1239
How can we get our BioRobot EZ1 upgraded when new protocols are launched?

Protocols for nucleic acid purification are supplied on pre-programmed EZ1 Protocol Cards. These protocols provide both on-screen instructions for the operator and operating commands for the workstation. The range of kits and protocols for the EZ1 is continuously expanding to allow nucleic acid purification from a wide range of sample types. Please browse our Supplementary Protocol Section to find specialized EZ1 protocols for a large variety of clinical sample types, in addition to the standard sample types covered in our EZ1 handbooks.

 

FAQ ID -1241
Where can I find information about the worktable setup on the BioRobot EZ1?

Loading of sample tubes, elution tubes, filter-tips, and Reagent Cartridges onto the worktable of the BioRobot EZ1 is intuitive, easy and quick. Details about worktable setup are provided with each new protocol, and are also displayed in the liquid-crystal display (LCD) of the control panel when you start setup of the worktable.

 

FAQ ID -1243
Do the foils sealing the EZ1 Reagent Cartridges have to be manually removed prior to loading the robot?

No, prefilled Reagent Cartridges can be loaded onto the BioRobot EZ1 with their seals. During operation of the instrument, the piercing unit, a row of 6 metal spikes located behind the tip adapters, will puncture the foil of the cartridges, thereby exposing the reagents.

FAQ ID -1131
What disposables are required for nucleic acid isolations on the BioRobot EZ1?

No extra accessories need to be purchased for the BioRobot EZ1, as sample and elution tubes, as well as tips and tip holders are included with each EZ1 DNA or RNA isolation kit.
