Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. launched new KingFisher nucleic acid purification kits that enable faster throughput and more rapid results. The kits contain all relevant buffers and reagents and are designed and optimized for use with Thermo Scientific KingFisher magnetic particle processors. In that configuration, the entire process is automated with “walk-away” capabilities that ensure higher sample purity and yields. Available for a range of sample types, from blood to plant material, the KingFisher kits enable users to obtain a complete, cost-effective workflow solution, which is ideal for biotechnology, clinical, academic and pharmaceutical laboratories.
The KingFisher particle processor enables fast and accurate purification of DNA or RNA, increasing efficiency for downstream analysis. In addition, the fully-scalable system has an expandable sample volume which, in combination with adjustable kit volumes, enables users to expand their capabilities in-line with changing throughput requirements without the need to purchase new equipment.
As a unique, open and flexible instrument, the KingFisher system enables users to select a kit that best meets the specific demands of each application. As a result, users can employ a single instrument for a broad range of protocols. For added flexibility, Thermo Scientific BindIt software lets users develop protocols for other applications such as protein or cell isolation.
The new range of Thermo Scientific KingFisher nucleic acid purification kits enables users to create a complete workflow, from sample preparation to downstream application analysis, from a single source.
