EZ1 Advanced XL DSP DNA Blood Card
For easy setup using the EZ1 Advanced XL and EZ1 DSP DNA Blood Kit for in vitro diagnostic use
The EZ1 Advanced XL DSP DNA Blood Card is preprogrammed with a protocol for purification of DNA from human whole blood samples using the EZ1 DSP DNA Blood Kit on the EZ1 Advanced XL. The protocol provides both on-screen instructions for the user and operating commands for the EZ1 Advanced XL Instrument. The system provides exact performance specifications, assuring highly reliable DNA purification.
EZ1 Advanced XL DSP DNA Blood Cards are used in combination with EZ1 DSP DNA Blood Kits on the EZ1 Advanced XL. Please refer to the specific EZ1 Kit handbook and the EZ1 Advanced XL User Manual for information about product use.
Automated sample preparation enables efficient, standardized purification of nucleic acids. The EZ1 Advanced XL enables purification of nucleic acids using proven magnetic-particle technology for use in routine in vitro diagnostic applications. Reagent production is subjected to stringent quality control assuring reliable and robust performance. An easy-to-use instrument, prefilled and sealed reagent cartridges, and simple protocol selection and worktable setup help to prevent handling errors and allow the system to be operated by anyone — from the novice to the expert. Manual handling of potentially infectious samples is minimized, ensuring safety to the user and reliable processing of samples. Purified genomic DNA is ready to use in sensitive downstream diagnostic assays based on enzymatic amplification, such as polymerase chain reacation (PCR) for genotyping.
The EZ1 Advanced XL in combination with the proven EZ1 DSP DNA Blood Kit enables purification of DNA from 1–14 samples of human whole blood. All processing steps are performed by the instrument — from piercing the reagent cartridge to elution of highly pure nucleic acids. The innovative design of the instrument means that the pipet tips function as separation chambers, increasing the efficiency of magnetic purification and eliminating the need for centrifugation steps. The streamlined procedure provides robust walkaway purification of nucleic acids with minimal hands-on time.
The high-quality DNA obtained using the EZ1 Advanced XL with the EZ1 Advanced XL DSP DNA Blood Card and EZ1 DSP DNA Blood Kit is suited for use in downstream diagnostic assays based on enzymatic amplification, such as HLA and genetic testing.
