Nucleic Acid Purification

Flexible & Cost-Effective Solution for Automated Nucleic Acid Purification

VERSA Automated Nucleic Acid Purification (NAP) workstations are equipped with innovative modules to automate challenging steps for any purification/isolation protocols. The Magnetic Bead Vortex ensures homogeneous bead suspension and distribution throughout the plate. The combination of ReagentDrop bulk reagent dispensing module and 96-Tip Aspirator offers fast and efficient bead washing and elution steps while saving tip costs. Unlike slider systems that allow limited plate movement between two neighbouring decks, Aurora’s Gripper and Transporter enable more flexibility in tailoring different protocols. The VERSA Automated Nucleic Acid Purification workstations are compatible with various commercial kits, reagents and labware. VERSA Automated Nucleic Acid Purification workstations are highly scalable for different throughputs and budget.
