AutoMate Express™ Forensic DNA Extraction System, with service install (Applied Biosystems™)

The AutoMate Express Forensic DNA Extraction System is an easy to use, robust bench-top instrument that utilizes the PrepFiler Express and PrepFiler Express BTA chemistries packaged in pre-filled, foil sealed cartridges. We have designed the PrepFiler chemistry specifically to improve the quantity and quality of DNA isolated from forensic samples, thereby increasing the potential to obtain maximum information from downstream STR analysis.

Key Product Features:
• Designed to improve the yield and overall purity of DNA isolated from both routine and challenging forensic samples.
• Provides high quality DNA, free of PCR inhibitors and suitable for downstream applications such as quantitative real-time PCR and short tandem repeat (STR) analysis
• Simple and fast separation of substrate from lysate with the unique PrepFiler LySep Column
• Quick and easy run setup with ready-to-use pre-filled cartridges
• Closed system that minimizes the risk of contamination and transposition errors
• Processes 1 to 13 samples in a single run
• Rapid implementation with pre-validated, pre-programmed instrument protocols
• Integrated solution including novel reagents, consumables and automation to provide time saving, cost effective and reliable DNA extraction
• Improves downstream genotyping (STR) success rate and profile quality
PrepFiler Express Kit Format and Components

The Automate Express System utilizes two different configurations of PrepFiler Chemistry. The PrepFiler Express Forensic DNA Extraction Kit is suitable for the majority of standard sample types encountered in forensic laboratories such as bodily fluids on different substrates including FTA paper, cotton swabs, cotton cloth, denim and many others. The PrepFiler Express BTA Forensic DNA Extraction Kit was designed specifically for challenging samples such as bones, teeth and adhesive based samples such as cigarette butts and tape lifts. Both formats come with all the reagents and plastic components including the PrepFiler LySep Columns needed to perform 52 DNA extractions on the AutoMate Express Instrument.

Streamlined Off-Line Lysis
The PrepFiler Express Kits include the innovative PrepFiler LySep Column, which dramatically streamlines the off-line lysis portion of the extraction method. PrepFiler Lysis buffer or PrepFiler BTA Lysis buffer is added directly into the PrepFiler LySep Column along with the sample for incubation. Next, the PrepFiler LySep Column is quickly centrifuged which permits lysate flow through the burstable membrane while the substrate remains behind in the column. The sample tube is then simply ready to be placed on the AutoMate Express instrument. This eliminates the manual lysate and substrate transfer steps, saving time and minimizing cross contamination and sample transposition events.

BenchPro™ 2100 Plasmid Processing Station (Invitrogen™)

The BenchPro® 2100 Plasmid Purification System is an innovative, automated instrument that provides a completely walk-away solution for high quality purification of your large-scale plasmid DNA.
• Innovative, straight-from-culture automation
• Superior yield and purity
• Minimize hands-on work and human errors

Innovative, Straight-From-Culture Automation
Going straight from culture to purified plasmid, the BenchPro® 2100 simplifies the standard, 22-step process of manual plasmid purification down a few easy set-up steps that can be performed typically in less than 5 minutes. Assemble the Reagent Tray and Cell Liner on the Waste Tray, and add your 125-ml E. coli culture to the Cell Liner. Then load the BenchPro® 2100 Plasmid Purification Card into one of the instrument slots, and run the purification protocol.

Unparalleled Yield and Purity
The BenchPro® 2100 Plasmid Purification Card at the core of the instrument is a disposable, fluidics card that contains a novel anion-exchange membrane that provides the same high-quality plasmid DNA as our manual PureLink® HiPure kits provide. Each plasmid preparation can be trusted for use in many applications – mammalian cell transfection, automated and manual sequencing, PCR amplification, cloning, transformation, and in vitro transcription. The BenchPro® 2100 system is able to reproducibly purify a range of plasmid sizes, from 2.7 to 20 kb (Figure 1). Plasmid yields from the BenchPro® 2100 are unmatched by those achieved by alternative methods (Figure 2).

Minimizes Variation and User Error
The BenchPro® 2100 Plasmid Purification System is designed to provide consistency and reliability by using prefilled and sealed reagents. All required buffers in appropriate volumes are supplied in a sealed Reagent Tray, and a disposable Cell Liner (for the addition of culture) with lid is included. The BenchPro® 2100 Plasmid Purification System accurately performs all steps of the purification process to help deliver consistent yield (Figure 3), eliminating the tedious and repetitive liquid-handling steps associated with the manual process of plasmid purification. During the automated purification protocol, pre-defined amounts of each reagent are sequentially pumped into the card, and incubation steps performed according to the protocol. Using a series of capture and purification membranes, E. coli cells are harvested and lysed, and the lysate clarified. By minimizing the number of hands-on steps, the BenchPro® 2100 Plasmid Purification System enhances experimental reproducibility and data consistency run after run.

For Research Use Only. Not intended for animal or human diagnostic or therapeutic use.

AutoLys M TubeLifter (Applied Biosystems™)

The AutoLys M TubeLifter enables a rack of 24 AutoLys M Tubes to be simultaneously “lifted” and readied for centrifugation. Once centrifugation is complete the rack of tubes is returned to the TubeLifter and the inner tube of each AutoLys M Tube is separated from the outer tube. The outer tube contains the lysate that is processed further using the MagMAX FFPE DNA/RNA Ultra Kit to recover the nucleic acids.
