Lab Automation

Boost walkaway time, reduce human error, increase throughput and improve sample processing uniformity. The Thermo Scientific™ DNA Purification System is an automation tool for bead based methods using magnetic particles. It automates all steps involved in the purification of DNA samples: binding of DNA to magnetic beads, washing of the bound material, elution from the solid phase and transfer to a final destination plate.
