App. Package, M48, Genotyping
For easy setup of protocols for genotyping applications
The App. Package, M48, Genotyping is a CD-ROM containing protocols for DNA purification from 100–700 μl blood or 25–300 μl buffy coat samples using MagAttract DNA Blood M48 Kits on the BioRobot M48 workstation. These protocols provide operating commands for the workstation and allow easy setup through comprehensive, on-screen instructions.
The App. Package, M48, Genotyping is intended for molecular biology applications. This product is not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
DNA yields depend on the sample type, number of nucleated cells in the sample, and the protocol used for isolation of DNA (see figure "Range of yields and concentrations from blood samples").
The BioRobot M48 and the MagAttract DNA Mini M48 Kit, with protocols on the App. Package, M48, Genotyping, reproducibly automate purification of total (genomic and mitochondrial) DNA from human whole blood and blood products. 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.
The high-quality DNA obtained using MagAttract DNA Blood M48 Kits with protocols in the App. Package, M48, Genotyping is suitable for use in many downstream applications, such as:
