What vacuum pressure should be applied using the QIAvac 24 Plus for the QIAamp DSP Virus Kit and Blood Mini Kit Protocols?
FAQ ID -1033

When processing samples with the QIAamp DSP DNA Blood Mini Kit and the QIAamp DSP Virus Kit, the vacuum pressure should be below -800 mbar. The QIAvac 24 Plus and the QIAvac Connecting System should be tested according to Appendix B of the QIAvac 24 Plus Handbook before performing a nucleic acid purification procedure.

If you would like to use an equivalent general laboratory vacuum system, make sure that the minimum vacuum pressure is reached. Performance of the QIAamp DSP DNA Blood Mini or Virus Kits in combination with a house-vacuum system has to be validated by the researcher.
