Figure 1. The recovery of the PCR products post-PCR cleanup was measured by spectrophotometry; 200 bp, 800 bp and 10 Kb PCR products where purified with the Agencourt AMPure XP kit, QIAquick* kit and QuickStep* filtration system.
Walk-away Automated Solution
Agencourt AMPure XP post-PCR cleanup has been automated on three Beckman Coulter liquid handlers, the Biomek 3000, NXP and FXP for processing scalability. The LIMS compatible automation functionality is aided by a user-friendly interface equipped with a quick startup menu, a deck setup walk-through menu, a method recovery menu, and a procedure menu.
