The InviGenius® PLUS instrument is a powerful tool for fully automated walk-away DNA/RNA purification. Up to 12 samples can be processed in one run, making it an ideal choice for low to medium throughput. The instrument offers a range of features for efficient DNA/RNA purification including a deep-well plate for processing of large sample volumes, heating positions for efficient lysis and high recovery elution, barcoded labware for full traceability and a choice of elution tubes or plates for more flexibility.
The instrument also features a droplet catcher, UV light for decontamination and unidirectional LIMS connectivity for accurate sample tracking. Liquid handling is performed with an air displacement pipettor that uses filter tips to prevent cross-contamination. The InviGenius® PLUS ensures purification of high-quality nucleic acids for reliable downstream applications such as PCR and sequencing.

All extraction protocols for the InviGenius® PLUS are preset in readily available run files and are adjusted to sample amount and kit chemistry volumes. Special protocols can be created under certain conditions, please use our contact form to contact us.
Magnetic beads in the eluate indicate a very high DNA concentration. The fragments of purified DNA can be very long. If the DNA fragments are highly concentrated, they can "wrap" around the beads, making them difficult to remove at the end of the purification process. This problem can be solved by a further centrifugation step after extraction. Subsequently, the samples can be transferred to a new tube, leaving the beads behind.
Sample tubes dimensions: 75 mm x 13 mm (length x Ø), 100 mm x 13 mm (length x Ø), 100 mm x 16 mm (length x Ø)
Elution tubes: For most of the kits an elution plate is used which is put to the eluate position of the instrument deck. However, for the InviMag® Free Circulating DNA Kit/ IG there is also a protocol for using 2 ml tubes, here Sarstedt 2 ml cap tubes with 10.8 mm (diameter) und 44 mm (length) are recommended.
