The AltoStar® Automation System AM16 is a robotic pipetting workstation used for sample purification and PCR setup controlled by the AltoStar® Connect software. It is intended to be used in combination with the AltoStar® Purification Kit 1.5, the AltoStar® Internal Control 1.5 and altona Diagnostics PCR kits for automated purification of nucleic acids and automated assay setup for in vitro diagnostic purposes.

Features & Benefits:

  • Streamlined process from nucleic acid extraction, PCR setup to amplification and detection

  • Universal purification kit for both DNA and RNA

  • Ready-to-use reagents: No pre-preparation or mixing is required

  • Scalable from 1-96 reactions, no minimum batch size required

  • Universal PCR amplification profiles allow to combine up to eight real-time PCR assays on a 96 well plate

  • AltoStar® Purification Kit (CE-IVD) validated for various sample types such as whole blood, EDTA plasma, urine, stool and swabs in UTM

  • Starting sample volume of either 500µl or 1000µl, in either primary or secondary sample tubes.
