February 2018—Thermo Fisher Scientific released its MagMax DNA Multi-Sample Ultra 2.0 reagents, which provide genetic testing companies, labs, and service providers with high-throughput DNA extraction from blood, saliva, buffy coat, and buccal swabs. The next-generation reagents can purify DNA from 96 samples in 45 minutes on Thermo Scientific KingFisher instruments using a simplified protocol for either small- or large-volume sample input.
The MagMax DNA reagents provide genetic testing labs with maximum yields of high-purity DNA for genome sequencing and other genetic testing applications. Additionally, using magnetic beads on an automated system enables high-throughput labs to standardize and accelerate sample purification while maintaining consistent results.
The reagents require one manual step before loading plates. This simplified workflow is designed to remove 90 percent of hands-on processing and does not require a dedicated sample prep expert.
