Automated and Optimized Magnetic Bead-Based Extraction
Hamilton, together with Thermo Fisher Scientific, optimized the NIMBUS Presto assay ready workstation for fully automated and parallel nucleic acid and protein extraction of a variety of biological samples. Blood, plasma, tissue, saliva, FFPE and buccal swabs may be automatically processed on a single, integrated system with a small footprint to conserve precious laboratory space. The workstation is integrated with the Thermo Fisher Scientific KingFisher Presto and pre-programmed for use with proven KingFisher magnetic bead-based sample processing. Two interchangeable magnetic heads allow parallel processing in 24- and 96-well plate formats.
Features and Benefits
Convenient, Individualized Flexibility
Both the NIMBUS Presto and ID NIMBUS Presto are easily fine-tuned to the lab’s specific sample processing needs today and as requirements evolve over time. The workstations offer interchangeable magnetic heads to process 24- or 96-well plates. Along with the interchangeable heads, the system pipettes volumes between 50 – 5000 μL and can extract DNA, RNA, cfDNA, and proteins from various samples.
Hands-Free, Hassle Free Operation
As fully walkaway systems, NIMBUS Presto and ID NIMBUS Presto significantly reduce cumbersome and user- or sample-variable processing steps as well as risks of sample handling or contamination throughout the workflow to achieve top-quality yields of target nucleic acids and proteins.
