STAR Q Punch AS Instrument
For high-throughput punching and assay setup for human identity samples
The STAR Q Punch AS Instrument is intended for molecular biology applications in forensic, human identity, and paternity testing. This product is not intended for diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
The STAR Q Punch AS is a high-throughput punching and liquid handling platform designed for assay setup for downstream PCR analysis of human identity samples. The system is designed for processing samples collected on QIAGEN EasiCollect cards, Bode Buccal Collectors and Copan NUCLEIcard collection devices.
The STAR Q Punch AS comes ready to run, with all protocols preinstalled and fully validated. Our experienced application specialists will manage instrument installation and training and ensure the system is quickly up and running.
Sample cards, reagents and consumables are loaded onto the instrument, which performs safety checks and bar code scans. The system then automates sample visualization and punching from sample collection cards directly into a 96-well PCR plate before proceeding with STR PCR setup according to predefined protocols optimized for use with Investigator STR GO! Kits.
All protocols and other system functions are selected and controlled using a simple-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI).
