Standardization and traceability
The EZ1 Advanced XL sets new standards in data management. Barcode reading enables complete tracking of samples and reagents throughout the entire purification process. Notes and assay identification information can also be easily entered. For increased process control and reliability, reagent identification and lot numbers are logged together with the expiration date, and a warning is issued if the expiration date has been exceeded. The run report, automatically generated at the end of each protocol, contains all relevant instrument information, including maintenance procedures and decontamination data. The instruments generate a pdf and a csv file after each run. Data can be easily transferred to a printer or computer within the network and the report file can be subsequently processed by a LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System).
Proven technology with improved performance
Proven EZ1 Kits, in combination with EZ1 Advanced XL Cards, ensure high-performance results in purification procedures. The unrivaled ease of use of the EZ1 Advanced XL enables fast and reproducible purification, without the need for specialized training or previous experience with laboratory automation. The extensive application range, including DNA purification from blood, tissues, and human identity and forensic samples, RNA purification from cells and tissues, and purification of viral nucleic acids from a range of sample types, delivers the flexibility that is essential for laboratories.
Safety and reliability
The EZ1 Advanced XL has been designed to ensure high process safety, high performance, and user convenience. A sensor ensures that the instrument door remains closed during sample preparation, reducing contact of laboratory personnel with potentially infectious samples and protecting sample integrity. At the end of each run, an intelligent-design UV lamp decontaminates the inner surface of the instrument. UV decontamination is highly effective in eliminating Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria (see tables). If required, the instrument can be placed in a safety cabinet, providing increased user safety.
