QIAsymphony Virus/Bacteria Kits
For automated purification of viral nucleic acids or bacterial DNA from 1–96 samples
QIAsymphony Virus/Bacteria Kits provide automated purification of viral nucleic acids and bacterial DNA from a broad range of sample types on the QIAsymphony SP. For example, nucleic acids can be purified from plasma, serum, CSF, respiratory samples, urine, urogenital swabs, and transport media. Kits are available in mini and midi format for sample volumes of 200 μl and up to 1000 μl. Optimized protocols provide high yields of pure nucleic acids, and flexible elution volumes allow nucleic acid concentration to be easily optimized for each downstream application. Prefilled reagent cartridges reduce setup time and minimize manual handling. Bar code reading enables full tracking of reagents.
QIAsymphony Virus/Bacteria Kits enable robust and reproducible capture of nucleic acids. Purified viral and bacterial nucleic acids are free of proteins, nucleases, and other impurities, and suitable for use in sensitive downstream applications. Efficient yields and flexible elution volumes (60 μl, 85 μl, or 110 μl) to suit the requirements of downstream applications ensure sensitive analytical detection (see figure "Sensitive detection of Chlamydia trachomatis in urine").
QIAsymphony Virus/Bacteria Kits combine the speed and efficiency of silica-based purification of viral and bacterial nucleic acids with the convenient handling of magnetic particles (see figure "Efficient processing of magnetic particles"). Innovative, ready-to-run reagent cartridges are prefilled with magnetic particles and all reagents required for the purification procedure, including accessory enzymes and are automatically opened by the QIAsymphony SP, which helps to minimize the risk of environmental contamination (see figure "Prefilled, sealed reagent cartridges"). Worktable setup is rapid, which saves your valuable time. Simply place up to 2 reagent cartridges in the consumables drawer. The reagent cartridges can be either from the same kit or from different kits, enabling different purification procedures to be performed within the same run of 96 samples. Reagent volumes only for the selected number of samples are used, giving you complete cost control.
The purification procedure is designed to ensure safe and reproducible handling of potentially infectious samples, and comprises 4 steps: lyse, bind, wash, and elute. The user can choose between different elution volumes depending on the protocol. The QIAsymphony SP performs all steps of the purification procedure. Up to 96 samples are processed in a single run.
QIAsymphony Virus/Bacteria Kits enable highly sensitive detection of a broad range of DNA and RNA viruses, as well as bacterial pathogens. Yields are linear, allowing accurate quantitative analysis for both low and high viral or bacterial titers. The high-quality nucleic acids are ready to use in all downstream applications, including sensitive detection assays using quantitative, real-time PCR or RT-PCR.
