AutoMate Express™ DNA Extraction System

The AutoMate Express™ Forensic DNA Extraction System is an easy to use, robust bench-top instrument that utilizes the PrepFiler Express™ and PrepFiler Express BTA™ chemistries packaged in pre-filled, foil sealed cartridges. Life Technologies has designed the PrepFiler chemistry specifically to improve the quantity and quality of DNA isolated from forensic samples, thereby increasing the potential to obtain maximum information from downstream Short Tandem Repeat (STR) analysis.

Key Features

  • Designed to improve the yield and overall purity of DNA isolated from both routine and challenging forensic samples.
  • Provides high quality DNA, free of PCR inhibitors and suitable for downstream applications such as quantitative real-time PCR and short tandem repeat (STR) analysis
  • Simple and fast separation of substrate from lysate with the unique PrepFiler LySep™ Column
  • Quick and easy run setup with ready-to-use pre-filled cartridges
  • Closed system that minimizes the risk of contamination and transposition errors
  • Processes 1 to 13 samples in a single run
  • Rapid implementation with pre-validated, pre-programmed instrument protocols
  • Integrated solution including novel reagents, consumables and automation to provide time saving, cost effective and reliable DNA extraction
  • Improves downstream genotyping (STR) success rate and profile quality
