The chemagic™ 360: a compact instrument for automated nucleic acid purification
The genomic analysis of large numbers of samples requires a reliable system for the automated isolation of DNA and RNA. With dimensions of only 80 x 80 cm and its unique sample volume flexibility, the chemagic™ 360 is an innovative instrument that can be adapted to fit almost all of your nucleic acid purification needs. By using chemagen's well-established M-PVA Magnetic Bead technology, the chemagic™ 360 provides high yields of ultra-pure nucleic acids suitable for a wide range of downstream applications such as NGS, MLPA, genotyping, and PCR.

PerkinElmer's exclusive chemagic™ technology for nucleic acid purification
Unlike other automated nucleic acid purification instruments, the chemagic™ 360 uses transiently magnetized rods to attract the beads after binding to the nucleic acids. This key technological feature and the concerted rotation of the rods allow optimal sample mixing during the homogenization and washing steps, increasing the yield and purity of the extracted nucleic acid molecules. The transfer of the magnetic beads between tubes minimizes the possibility of sample contamination between purification steps.
