IDEAL-32 is an instrument that performs fully automated purification of nucleic acids using magnetic beads up to 32 samples of 2mL, 16 samples of 4mL and 8 samples of 8mL per run. Automated steps include binding of nucleic acids to magnetic beads, washing and elution of nucleic acids.

After choosing the extraction protocols to be used through the software interface, the user sets up the machine using the touch panel, loads the different solutions, samples, the magnetic rod’s tips to protect the magnetic row (4 rows of 8 magnets). Then, the user closes the workstation cover and starts the protocol.

The protocol provides all the necessary instructions for the IDEAL-32 to carry out automated nucleic acid purification. The transfer of samples into the different reagents and the separation of the nucleic acid from magnetic beads are performed by the magnetic rows to ensure excellent reproducibility and minimize the handling time required for the extraction and purification of the nucleic acids.
