KingFisher systems are on the front line of the battle against SARS-CoV-2, helping labs accelerate RNA extraction throughput to handle the huge demand for fast and accurate SARS-CoV-2 test results.
KingFisher systems are optimized for MagMAX kits, SMART Digest kits, and Dynabeads purification kits and reagents for extraction of nucleic acids, proteins, and cells. They are also designed to adapt to your changing research needs. That’s why we include free software with all KingFisher instruments so that you can create, modify, and store your own protocols or download tested protocols from our website.
To select the best kit for your application, and to view compatible protocols for download, see the Kits, Reagents, and Protocols tab or go directly to our selection guide.
For application notes, guides, and other documents about using KingFisher systems for SARS-CoV-2 testing, see SARS-CoV-2 testing above.
