Can I use your QIAvac 96 for extraction of DNA using the DNeasy 96 Blood & Tissue Kit?
FAQ ID -9157

We do not recommend using a vacuum manifold for DNA extraction with the DNeasy 96 Blood & Tissue Kit because:

  1. Viscosity of the lysates varies from sample to sample. Therefore, the wells of the DNeasy 96 plate are at great risk of clogging.
  2. Use of vacuum manifold would result in incomplete removal of ethanol and salts after washing with Buffer AW2. This will affect the purity and yield of samples.
