Product Details

The QIAGEN Vacuum Pump is suitable for all standard laboratory vacuum procedures (capacity 34 L/min, 8 mbar vacuum abs.). The Vacuum Pump, in combination with QIAvac vacuum manifolds, enables vacuum processing of many QIAGEN nucleic acid purification kits. Vacuum-driven liquid processing is an attractive alternative to centrifugation that minimizes the hands-on time needed for sample preparation. For optimal pressure, the pump must be used with a Vacuum Regulator.

The QIAvac Connecting System has been specifically designed for use with the Vacuum Pump and the QIAvac 24 Plus vacuum manifold, allowing sample flow-through, containing possible infectious material, to be collected in sealed waste bottles. The QIAvac Connecting System together with the QIAvac 24 Plus vacuum manifold proved to be an ideal tool in studies evaluating the performance of QIAGEN’s CE-certified clinical diagnostic kits.
For best results, the Vacuum Pump should be used together with the QIAvac Connecting system.

The procedure has been used successfully for isolation of a single-copy, 14.5 kb, binary plasmid, p35S GUS INT, from Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain GV2260 (1).
This procedure has been adapted by customers and is for purification of viral RNA and DNA from plasma, serum, and cell-free body fluids using the QIAamp MinElute Virus Vacuum Kit.

FAQ

Does the QIAamp DSP Virus Kit require the QIAvac 24 Plus, or can I use it with my own laboratory vacuum system?
It is possible to use a general laboratory vacuum system with the QIAamp DSP Virus Kit. However, this will require validation in-house. The CE-marked QIAamp Kits have been developed, field-tested and validated with the QIAvac 24 Plus vacuum system (QIAvac 24 Plus, QIAvac Connecting System and Vacuum Pump). Using this system with the QIAamp DSP Virus Kit will avoid lengthy validation procedures for the enduser.
