Using the QIAcube Connect. Fully automated purification of nucleic acids or proteins using QIAGEN spin kits, such as QIAprep Mini kits, on the QIAcube Connect eliminates the need for tedious manual steps. Sample preparation on the QIAcube Connect follows the same steps as the manual procedure (i.e., lysis, bind, wash and elute). No change in purification chemistry is required.
The QIAcube Connect has a large integrated touchscreen that simplifies protocol selection, and clear on-screen messages guide the user through worktable setup, taking ease-of-use to the next level.
The QIAcube Connect instrument comes with a built-in UV light source that enables full worktable decontamination, and prevents any sample carryover.
