EZ1 DSP Virus Card
For easy setup using the EZ1 DSP Virus Kit for in vitro diagnostic purposes
The EZ1 DSP Virus Card is a preprogrammed card containing protocols for purification of viral nucleic acids and bacterial DNA from human serum, plasma, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), urine, whole blood, stool, transport media, respiratory samples, and dried swabs. These protocols provide both on-screen instructions for the operator and operating commands. The CE-IVD-marked system provides exact performance specifications, assuring highly reliable viral nucleic acid purification.
The EZ1 DSP Virus Card is intended for in-vitro diagnostic use.
Automated sample preparation enables efficient, standardized purification of nucleic acids. The EZ1 DSP Virus Card enables purification of nucleic acids using proven magnetic-particle technology for use in routine in vitro diagnostic applications. Reagent production is subjected to stringent quality control assuring reliable and robust performance. An easy-to-use instrument, prefilled and sealed reagent cartridges, and simple protocol selection and worktable setup help to prevent handling errors and allow the system to be operated by anyone — from the novice to the expert. Manual handling of potentially infectious samples is minimized, ensuring safety to the user and reliable processing of samples. Purified viral nucleic acids are ready to use in sensitive downstream diagnostic assays based on enzymatic amplification, such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and reverse transcription PCR (RT-PCR) for viral load monitoring.
The EZ1 DSP Virus Card in combination with the proven EZ1 DSP Virus Kit enables purification of viral nucleic acids and bacterial DNA from 1–6 samples of human serum, plasma, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), urine, whole blood, stool, transport media, respiratory samples, and dried swabs s. All processing steps are performed by the instrument — from piercing the reagent cartridge to elution of highly pure nucleic acids. The innovative design of the instrument means that the pipet tips function as separation chambers, increasing the efficiency of magnetic purification and eliminating the need for centrifugation steps. The streamlined procedure provides robust walkaway purification of nucleic acids with minimal hands-on time.
The high-quality viral nucleic acids obtained using the EZ1 DSP Virus Card and EZ1 DSP Virus Kit is suited for use in downstream diagnostic assays based on enzymatic amplification, such quantitative PCR and RT-PCR.
