QIAamp DNA Blood BioRobot MDx Kit

For automated purification of genomic and mitochondrial DNA from whole blood

  • Rapid isolation of high-quality, ready-to-use DNA
  • No organic extraction or alcohol precipitation
  • Consistent, high yields
  • Removal of contaminants and inhibitors

The QIAamp DNA Blood BioRobot MDx Kit provides automated DNA purification on the BioRobot MDx workstation or the BioRobot Universal System using proven QIAamp silica-membrane technology. The fully automated procedure on the BioRobot MDx workstation requires less than 2.5 hours, including bar code reading and complete process documentation, with no hands-on time during the run.

No PCR inhibition.
A 1.2 kb fragment of the single-copy Hugl gene was amplified from DNA purified with the QIAamp DNA Blood BioRobot MDx Kit, using HotStarTaq DNA Polymerase in a 50 µl reaction volume. No inhibition was observed using either  A  1 µl of eluate or  B  20 µl of eluate as template.

Reliable real-time PCR.

The QIAamp DNA Blood BioRobot MDx Kit was used to purify genomic DNA from 96 whole blood samples (each 200 µl) collected from a single donor. The β-actin gene was amplified from the purified DNA using the TaqMan system. An amplification plot of 96 PCR reactions is shown. (Data generated by QIAGEN R&D.)


The QIAamp DNA Blood BioRobot MDx Kit process provides DNA isolation on a 96-well plate, automating processing of 32 to 96 samples (200 µl sample volume) in increments of 8 on the BioRobot MDx or the BioRobot Universal System.  The fully automated procedure, including bar code reading, 20-minute load check, and complete process documentation, requires less than 2.5 hours for 96 samples, with no hands-on time. The typical yield is 3–6 µg per 200 µl healthy whole blood, with an elution volume of 200 µl.

The resulting DNA performs well in downstream amplification and Southern blotting assays (see figures "No PCR inhibition" and "Reliable real-time PCR").


The QIAamp DNA Blood BioRobot MDx Kit simplifies isolation of DNA from whole blood with a fast, automated 96-well–plate procedure. No phenol–chloroform extraction is required. DNA binds specifically to the QIAamp silica-gel membrane while contaminants pass through. PCR inhibitors, such as divalent cations and proteins, are completely removed in three efficient wash steps, leaving pure DNA to be eluted in either water or a buffer provided with the kit. QIAamp technology yields genomic and mitochondrial DNA from whole blood ready to use in PCR and blotting procedures.

The advantages of the fully automated system include high process reliability and walkaway automation, to provide a highly efficient system for DNA purification for laboratories. QIAamp sample preparation technology is fully licensed.

Optimized buffers lyse samples, stabilize nucleic acids, and enhance selective nucleic acid adsorption to the QIAamp membrane. Alcohol is added and lysates loaded onto the QIAamp 96-well plate. Wash buffers and ethanol are used to remove impurities, and pure, ready-to-use DNA is then eluted in water or low-salt buffer (see flowchart "protocol").

The QIAamp DNA Blood BioRobot MDx Kit offers a 96-well format for processesing 32–96 samples in increments of 8. The kit can process samples from whole blood or buffy coat with common anticoagulants such as citrate and EDTA. The QIAamp DNA Blood BioRobot MDx Kit can process blood and buffy coat samples that are fresh or frozen, provided they have not been frozen and thawed more than once. QIAamp technology yields genomic and mitochondrial DNA from whole blood that is ready to use in PCR and blotting procedures.
