QIAamp 96 Virus QIAcube HT Kit
For automated high-throughput purification of viral RNA and DNA from a variety of samples
The QIAamp 96 Virus QIAcube HT Kit enables simple, automated purification of viral RNA and DNA on the QIAcube HT system. Using proven QIAamp silica-membrane technology in a convenient 96-well format, contaminants and inhibitors are removed to yield high-quality nucleic acids that are ready for downstream analysis.
The QIAamp 96 Virus QIAcube HT Kit is intended for molecular biology applications. This product is not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
The QIAamp 96 Virus QIAcube HT Kit enables automated purification of viral RNA and DNA from a broad range of sample types including fresh or frozen tissues, blood and other body fluids. The procedure yields high-quality viral nucleic acids that perform well in downstream PCR and RT-PCR analyses (see figure Reliable purification from a range of sample types).
QIAcube HT with the dedicated QIAamp 96 Virus QIAcube HT Kit lets users increase sample purification throughput without having to compromise on quality or reliability. The procedure provides high yields of pure RNA or DNA that perform well in downstream analyses, similar to other QIAGEN DNA purification solutions (see figures Reliable automated purification and High sensitivity of viral nucleic acids in PCR and RT-PCR).
The QIAamp 96 Virus QIAcube HT Kit combines the selective binding properties of a silica-based membrane with a high-throughput 96-well format, and is designed for fully automated, simultaneous processing of 24–96 samples on the QIAcube HT instrument.
The QIAamp 96 Virus QIAcube HT procedure is fast and simple with the QIAcube HT instrument. Samples are lysed under highly denaturing conditions at room temperature in the presence of QIAGEN proteinase K and Buffer ACL, which together ensure the inactivation of nucleases. Adding Buffer ACB adjusts the binding conditions for the co-purification of DNA and RNA. The lysate is then transferred to a QIAamp 96 plate. During vacuum, nucleic acids are adsorbed onto the silica membranes while contaminants pass through. Three efficient wash steps remove the remaining contaminants and enzyme inhibitors, and nucleic acids are eluted in Buffer AVE. Some samples may require a pretreatment.
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.
