Product Details


The QIAamp 96 DNA QIAcube HT Kit enables simple, automated purification of total DNA (e.g., genomic, mitochondrial, and pathogen) from blood, cells, and tissue samples. 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. This kit is designed to be used on QIAcube HT System.

Performance

The QIAamp 96 DNA QIAcube HT Kit provides fast and reliable automated purification of total DNA in 96-well format. Results are highly reproducible, with no significant well-to-well variation in DNA recovery (see figure  Reproducible 96-well DNA purification).
Automated purification of total DNA from blood samples is quick, easy, and reliable with the QIAamp 96 DNA QIAcube HT Kit. Fresh or frozen whole blood containing common anticoagulants can be processed, and the resulting DNA is of the same high quality as from other QIAGEN purification solutions (see figures  Agarose gel of purified genomic DNA and  Analysis of genomic DNA from human blood).
QIAcube HT and the dedicated QIAamp 96 DNA QIAcube HT Kit lets users increase sample purification throughput without having to compromise on quality or reliability. The procedure provides high yields of pure DNA that perform well in downstream analyses, similar to other QIAGEN DNA purification solutions (see figures  High performance in downstream assays and  Purification of genomic DNA from tissues).
See figures

Principle

The QIAamp 96 DNA QIAcube HT Kit enables automated purification of total DNA (e.g., genomic, mitochondrial, and pathogen) from a variety of sample sources including fresh or frozen tissues, cells, and blood. Samples treated with common anticoagulants such as citrate, heparin, or EDTA are suitable for use. The procedure yields high-quality DNA that performs well in PCR and other enzymatic reactions.
The QIAamp 96 DNA 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: up to 200 μl (for sample volumes less than 200 μl, add PBS)
Cells: up to 5 x 106 cells
Tissues: up to 20 mg tissue (10 mg for spleen, liver, or lung tissue)
Elution volume 200 μl
Duration 96 samples in approximately 96 minutes
24 samples in approximately 45 minutes

Procedure

The QIAamp 96 DNA QIAcube HT procedure is fast and simple with the QIAcube HT instrument. Samples are first lysed using QIAGEN Proteinase K. Buffering conditions are adjusted to provide optimal DNA binding conditions and the lysate is loaded onto the QIAamp 96 plate. As vacuum is applied, DNA selectively binds to the QIAamp membrane, and contaminants pass through. Remaining contaminants and enzyme inhibitors are removed in three efficient wash steps. Pure DNA is eluted under vacuum in a single step in 200 µl of Buffer AE.

Applications

The QIAamp 96 DNA QIAcube HT Kit provides high-quality DNA, ready to use in various downstream assays, including applications in:
Life science research
Livestock breeding
Pedigree genotyping
Veterinary pathogen research
Routine applied testing

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.
