Maelstrom 9600 is an automated nucleic acid platform designed for medium to high-throughput applications of DNA/RNA isolation processes. Due to its design and easy-to-use software interface it is the ideal system for daily isolations of numerous isolation protocols.
The specialized spin tips enable superb mixing efficiency of magnetic beads and larger processing volume. The Maelstrom 9600 mixing options for sample, beads and buffers is a combination of pulsation and rotation. The rotation can be set at a range up to 300 rpm. The spin tips are designed especially for the Maelstrom products. The design is such that DNA shearing is minimized while mixing and elution is optimized.
With multiple temperature controlled positions on the Maelstrom 9600, heating up or cooling down buffers or samples is only one of the many possibilities.
The touch screen operating interface eliminates the need of a separate computer, and further decreases the ease of use, even while wearing gloves.
