Principle

The BioRobot M48 and the MagAttract DNA Mini M48 Kit, with protocols on the App. Package, M48, Genomic Research, reproducibly automate purification of genomic DNA. Purification of 6–48 samples per run is efficient and purified DNA performs well in downstream analyses.

The BioRobot M48 system provides fully automated purification of DNA using silica-coated magnetic particles, eliminating the need for tedious centrifugation steps. The easy-to-use workstation allows purification of 6–48 samples in a single run. Between processing runs, the worktable can be decontaminated using an integrated UV lamp to reduce the chances of environmental contamination.
