KingFisher instruments for automated sample transfer and purification

KingFisher purification instruments automate the extraction and purification of DNA, RNA, proteins, and cells. KingFisher sample transfer instruments automate decapping, recapping, sample tracking, and transfer of viral transport media (VTM), nasopharengeal (NP) swabs, and saliva samples.

KingFisher sample transfer and purification instrument models serve applications ranging from SARS-CoV-2 and infectious diseases, extracting viral or pathogen nucleic acid, to isolating genomic DNA (gDNA) for genetic testing. Their broad functionality and customizable software feature additionally serve applications, such as FFPE and cell-free DNA (cfDNA) tissue and liquid biopsy, immunoprecipitation, peptide mapping, and cells and exosomes.

KingFisher instruments provide easy-to-follow protocols that remove manual steps and reduce overall processing time and errors associated with sample preparation while increasing the yield reproducibility of your results compared to manual workflows. Our data show that samples processed with KingFisher instruments maintain consistent results across runs and different users, which is crucial for more sensitive downstream applications, such as qPCR, NGS, digital PCR, and mass spectrometry.
