Features

  • Simple and reliable automated processing for cost and time savings
  • Suitable for many samples, including blood, tissues, swabs and body fluids
  • Consistent, high yields
  • Efficient removal of inhibitors and contaminants
  • Purified nucleic acids ready for analysis by real-time PCR or RT-PCR

Product Details

The QIAamp 96 Virus QIAcube HT Kit enables simple, automated purification of viral RNA and DNA on the QIAcube HT system. Using proven QIAamp silica-membrane technology in a convenient 96-well format, contaminants and inhibitors are removed to yield high-quality nucleic acids that are ready for downstream analysis.

Performance

The QIAamp 96 Virus QIAcube HT Kit enables automated purification of viral RNA and DNA from a broad range of sample types including fresh or frozen tissues, blood and other body fluids. The procedure yields high-quality viral nucleic acids that perform well in downstream PCR and RT-PCR analyses (see figure  Reliable purification from a range of sample types).
QIAcube HT with the dedicated QIAamp 96 Virus QIAcube HT Kit lets users increase sample purification throughput without having to compromise on quality or reliability. The procedure provides high yields of pure RNA or DNA that perform well in downstream analyses, similar to other QIAGEN DNA purification solutions (see figures  Reliable automated purification and  High sensitivity of viral nucleic acids in PCR and RT-PCR).
See figures

Principle

The QIAamp 96 Virus QIAcube HT Kit combines the selective binding properties of a silica-based membrane with a high-throughput 96-well format, and is designed for fully automated, simultaneous processing of 24–96 samples on the QIAcube HT instrument.
Kit specifications
Specification Description
Number of samples 24–96 samples (to be processed in increments of 8)
Sample input volume Blood and other body fluids: up to 200 μl (for sample volumes less than 200 μl, add PBS)
Tissues: up to 20 mg tissue
Elution volume 100 μl
Duration 96 samples in approximately 145 minutes
24 samples in approximately 90 minutes

Procedure

The QIAamp 96 Virus QIAcube HT procedure is fast and simple with the QIAcube HT instrument. Samples are lysed under highly denaturing conditions at room temperature in the presence of QIAGEN proteinase K and Buffer ACL, which together ensure the inactivation of nucleases. Adding Buffer ACB adjusts the binding conditions for the co-purification of DNA and RNA. The lysate is then transferred to a QIAamp 96 plate. During vacuum, nucleic acids are adsorbed onto the silica membranes while contaminants pass through. Three efficient wash steps remove the remaining contaminants and enzyme inhibitors, and nucleic acids are eluted in Buffer AVE. Some samples may require a pretreatment.

Applications

The high-quality nucleic acids are ready to use in all downstream applications, including sensitive detection assays using quantitative, real-time PCR or RT-PCR.

FAQ

Can I run the QIAcube HT with the QIAxtractor software or vice versa?

No, the two software applications are not interchangeable.

 

Additionally, the QIAcube HT and QIAxtractor software cannot be installed on the same computer. The QIAcube HT software versions is v4.17 or higher, while the QIAxtractor software version is v4.16 or lower.

FAQ ID -9102
For what batch size is the QIAcube HT Plasticware designed?
The QIAcube HT Plasticware content is calculated for use with the extraction protocol working in batches of 96 samples. If running smaller batches and/ or the transfer protocol, additional consumables are required. 
FAQ ID - 4010
Can I upgrade a Corbett CAS-1820 to a QIAcube HT?

No, this upgrade is not possible.

FAQ ID -9104
What file is required for reporting a QIAcube HT or QIAxtractor issue?

The Support Packages are important when reporting an issue to QIAGEN Technical Services. Upon completion of each run, the software automatically saves a support package.

 

To retrieve a support package, click Help in the QIAcube HT or QIAxtractor software and select Choose support package. In the new windows, select the support package that corresponds to the issue and send it to QIAGEN Technical Services.

 

FAQ ID -9100
I am getting vacuum errors on my QIAcube HT. What should I do?

1. Check the vacuum tubing to make sure it is not pinched or obstructed in some way. Sometimes the tubing can become pinched against the bench top when the vacuum station is placed too far from the instrument.

Waste bottle tubing

2. Make sure that the channeling adapter is properly placed. Check if the carriage is moving the plate completely from the waste chamber position to the elution chamber position. If the calibration seems incorrect, the instrument may need to be re-taught at this position.

Adaptors

3. When using less than a full plate, make sure all the unused columns are covered with an adhesive seal.

Also, make sure each column of 8 samples is full. When processing a number of samples that results in < 8 samples per column, use water as a substitute in the empty positions until the column is filled. This ensures even vacuum across all unsealed well positions.

4. Make sure correct plates are used for the selected protocol.

5. When the vacuum is on, please listen for any hissing noise from the tubing that is coming down to the waste container. This could indicate leaks in the tubing.

If the issue persists, please contact QIAGEN Technical Service.



FAQ ID -9106
What do I do if the QIAcube HT or QIAxtractor software runs in virtual mode while the instrument is connected to the computer?

Make sure the QIAcube HT or QIAxtractor software uses the same COM port number as assigned to the QIAcube HT or QIAxtractor instrument on the computer. The COM port setting can be checked by clicking Options\Robot Setup\Select COM port in the QIAcube HT or QIAxtractor software.

 

Ensure that the cable between the instrument and the computer is securely inserted. Power on the instrument first, and then launch the QIAxtractor/QIAcube HT software. 

 

The instrument has both RS-232 (serial) and USB interfaces for computer connection. Try an RS-232 cable if the communication cannot be established between the instrument and computer with a USB cable.

 

If the issue persists, please contact QIAGEN Technical Services.
