Automated Viral RNA kits

Automated AmpliMax Viral RNA extraction kits - COVID 19

  • Technology: Gene Vantage's AmpliMax Viral RNA kit is based on magnetic bead technology. This technology offers superior flexibility and can be adjusted to almost any automated robotics platform.

  • Sample type: As with our existing Amplimax Viral RNA kits, the product is designed for the isolation of viral RNA from cell free fluids such as plasma, serum, urine, swabs and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL).

  • Workflow overview: The kit employs superparamagnetic spherical particles that selectively bind viral RNA fragments, forming a particle-nucleic acid complex that is easily separated from the aqueous phase using a magnet. The separation allows the viral RNA fragments to be repeatedly washed to eliminate contaminants.

  • Application: The purified product is suitable for all downstream applications such as RT-PCR. The current kit has been adjusted for the isolation of Viral RNA from swabs and bronchoalveolar lavage during the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • Automated systems: One size does not fit all when it comes to an automated robotics system. Our team is on-hand to design custom solutions so that laboratories do not need to purchase additional equipment, but are still able to meet the Covid testing demand.

  • Covid-19: Gene Vantage's team has designed custom solutions for various open automated systems that allow clients to directly swop out their reagents without any change to the robotics programming. 

  • NEW solution: Our team developed and validated a full solution for the Hamilton Nimbus system allowing a direct swop for clients.

    • NO waiting

    • NO extra costs for programming

    • A direct product swop, available IMMEDIATELY.
