Improve your preanalytical workflows

Before conducting an analysis of cells, proteins or nucleic acid, researchers must ensure high
quality inputs. Preanalytical workflows can be improved by having automated purification instruments integrated with magnetic bead-based separation. MagMAX and KingFisher workflows are designed to provide consistent and high-quality nucleic acid extraction, purification, and isolation for various application areas, resulting in reliable and reproducible results. Download free application notes, view application specific workflows, and learn how to extract samples, isolate analytes and deliver pure results for your research.
