MagCore® HF16 Automated Nucleic Acid Extractor

Cost-Effective DNA or RNA Extraction

The MagCore® HF16 is a simple, fast and cost-effective instrument that automatically purifies nucleic acids from a wide range of sample types for applications like gene expression analysis, clinical molecular diagnosis, human identity testing, forensics, and biomedical research.

Using specially designed MagCore reagent kits, this instrument enables the parallel processing of up to 16 samples per run. With the pre-programmed protocols and magnetic bead based reagent cartridges, the system provides consistent and stable nucleic acid purification for every busy laboratory.

  • Flexible design: 1-16 samples can be run without waste of resources
  • Simple procedure guaranteed by touch button operation
  • Rapid and reliable results in 30 minutes (depending on protocol and kit)
  • Contamination free achieved with the use of prefilled reagents, disposables, and integrated UV sterilization

Kits for MagCore HF16

MagCore® Nucleic Acid Extraction Kits contain all reagents and consumables needed for 36, 72 and 96 nucleic acid isolation reactions. The consumables consist of reagent cartridges, individually packaged tip sets, sample tubes and elution tubes.

A wide range of ready-to-use kits is available for the MagCore system including a very new kit for FFPE sample preparation  Kits for MagCore HF16

Kit Cartridge System

MagCore® reagent cartridges are pre-sealed incorporating all reagents needed for the purification process. No additional reagents are required and no handling is necessary. Pre-filled and sealed buffer cartridge and automated piercing steps eliminate possible contamination or buffer spout. A patented Heating Well and Separation Well in the cartridge ensure a strong circulate force for the Binding/Washing steps and deliver high purity in the final eluate. The MagCore® beads are pre-allocated into each cartridge in Well 4. Mixing of the beads, reagents, and the sample is guaranteed by the liquid handling action of the instrument. Separation is achieved by magnetic attraction and liquid handling.
