Your samples, faster

KingFisher instruments save you valuable time by removing manual steps and reducing overall processing time, even when compared with other instruments.

Your samples, consistently

KingFisher instruments reduce user processing errors while increasing the reproducibility of your results. Our data show that samples processed with KingFisher instruments show consistent results across runs and different users, which is important for more sensitive downstream applications such as qPCR, NGS, digital PCR, and mass spectrometry.

Your samples, easier

KingFisher instruments offer optimized, easy-to-follow protocols for nearly every downstream application or sample type.

How KingFisher works

KingFisher instruments automate extraction of DNA, RNA, protein, and cells by moving magnetic beads (not liquids), leading to clean extractions and enabling consistent results. Using a simple process (bind, wash, elute), KingFisher instruments can automate the extraction of any analyte of interest with a bead on it.
