MagMAX™-96 Viral RNA Isolation Kit Applied Biosystems™

The MagMAX-96 Viral RNA Isolation Kit is for the isolation of viral RNA and DNA from diverse sample types (e.g., environmental samples and biofluids). Nucleic acids purified using this kit are ideal for PCR and RT-PCR applications. For a NVSL-validated version of this kit, please see the MagMAX-96 AI⁄ND Viral RNA Isolation Kit.

Benefits of MagMAX magnetic bead-based purification:
Magnetic beads offer many benefits compared to other technologies for isolating RNA. Beads bind RNA more efficiently than glass fiber filters, resulting in higher and more consistent RNA yields. Additionally, because filters are not used, there is no risk of filter clogging due to cellular particulates in samples. Since only a small volume of magnetic beads is needed for high-efficiency binding, the bound RNA can be eluted in just 20–50 µL of nuclease-free water, concentrating RNA from large, dilute samples.

Optimized for isolation of virus from biofluids
The MagMAX Viral RNA Isolation Kit has been optimized for use with biological fluids and cell-free samples such as serum, plasma, swabs, and cell culture media. These samples often present unique challenges when purifying RNA, including low viral titers, large volumes to be processed, and sample complexity. Without the need for organic solvents or RNA precipitation, the MagMAX Viral RNA Isolation Kit eliminates the problems often encountered with other RNA isolation methods such filter clogging, large elution volumes, and inconsistent yields. With this kit, DNA and RNA input levels ranging from 20 copies to 25 x 106 copies have been quantitatively recovered from plasma, serum, and milk. And even with less sample input, pathogen detection was as sensitive (equivalent CTs) or more sensitive (lower CTs) using nucleic acid isolated with the MagMAX kit when compared to nucleic acid isolated using another company's product.

Accessory Products:
This kit is optimized for automated nucleic acid purification using KingFisher magnetic particle processors.

Benefits of the MagMAX™ Total Nucleic Acid Isolation Kit:
The MagMAX™ Total Nucleic Acid Isolation Kit procedure combines an effective method sample disruption with magnetic bead–based nucleic acid isolation and purification technology. The MagMAX™ microspherical paramagnetic beads have a large available binding surface and can be fully dispersed in solution, allowing thorough nucleic acid binding, washing, and elution. This results in consistent yields of high-quality nucleic acid with >50% recovery and little sample-to-sample variation (recovery may vary depending on sample type). The entire procedure can be completed in approximately 1 hour.

Overview of the Procedure:
Samples are disrupted using zirconia beads in a guanidinium thiocyanate–based solution; this rapidly releases nucleic acid while simultaneously inactivating nucleases. Samples are then diluted with isopropanol, and paramagnetic beads are added to the sample. The beads bind nucleic acids and are then immobilized on magnets and washed to remove proteins and other contaminants. A second wash solution is used to remove residual binding solution. Finally, nucleic acid is eluted in a small volume of low-salt buffer. The MagMAX™ Total Nucleic Acid Isolation Kit procedure is designed for processing samples in 96-well plates, thus 96 samples can be processed at once; however, the kit can also be used with fewer than 96 samples.

MagMAX™ Cell-Free DNA Isolation Kit Applied Biosystems™

The MagMAX™ Cell-Free DNA Isolation Kit is designed for enrichment of circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA) and optimized for use with biological samples such as serum and plasma. The kit is based on MagMAX™ magnetic-bead technology, enabling reproducible recovery of high-quality DNA that is suitable for a broad range of applications, including real-time PCR, digital PCR, and next-generation sequencing.

Scalable isolation of circulating nucleic acid from plasma, serum, and urine
cfDNA recovery is challenging due to the limited amount present in cell-free samples. The MagMAX Cell-Free DNA Isolation Kit addresses this with its magnetic bead-based purification format which allows you to easily process a wide range of sample input volumes, from 100 µL to 10 mL. When used with either a KingFisher™ Duo Prime or KingFisher™ Flex magnetic particle processor, 6 to 24 plasma/serum samples of 2 mL input volume can be isolated at once. Alternatively, samples can be processed manually with the use of a magnetic stand.

Features of the MagMAX Cell-Free DNA Isolation Kit include:

• Flexible design that permits both manual and automated isolation of cfDNA
• Scalable format that allows for higher and lower input volumes
• Automation-ready, phenol-free extraction
• Fast procedure, which allows 6 to 24 samples to be processed typically in 40 minutes or less when used with the KingFisher Duo Prime Magnetic Particle Processor or the KingFisher Flex Magnetic Particle Processor with a 24 Deep-Well Head
• Wide sample volume inputs range from 500 µL to 10 mL of plasma/serum or urine
• Contains Dynabeads™ MyOne™ Silane for consistent isolation of cfDNA
• Elution volumes range from 15 µL to 50 µL

Unlock a wealth of information with cell-free DNA
Isolating and analyzing circulating cfDNA from plasma, serum, or urine has the potential to serve as a non-invasive approach to detect and monitor targets associated with certain disease states such as cancer. The first step in attaining this valuable information is efficient nucleic acid isolation that specifically recovers the circulating cfDNA while leaving the larger DNA molecules behind. This helps ensure that the shorter, fragmented DNA is concentrated and ready for downstream analysis using real-time PCR, digital PCR, or next-generation sequencing.

Benefits of MagMAX magnetic bead–based purification
Magnetic beads offer many benefits compared to other technologies for isolating cfDNA. Beads bind the DNA more efficiently than glass fiber filters, resulting in higher and more consistent yields. Additionally, because filters and vacuum manifolds are not used, there is no risk of cellular particulates clogging these items during the extraction process. This clogging issue is of particular concern with protein-rich, large-volume samples such as plasma that are commonly used in cfDNA studies.

Optimized surface chemistry
The Dynabeads MyOne Silane contained in the MagMAX Cell-Free DNA Isolation Kit have an optimized silica-like surface chemistry with high specific surface area that allows efficient kinetics and high sensitivity in nucleic acid capture. These aspects make Dynabeads MyOne Silane ideal for the recovery of circulating cfDNA targets present at low concentrations in cell-free body fluids. Once captured, these rare DNA fragments can then be eluted in small elution volumes of 15 µL to 50 µL and are ready for downstream applications.
