Omega Bio-tek will be attending the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) conference from February 5-7, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA. Booth 414.

Hamilton Firefly NIMBUS® 96

For SLAS 2018, we have partnered with Hamilton Company to feature the Firefly NIMBUS® 96 system. The Hamilton Firefly NIMBUS 96 workstation is a compact, automated liquid handler specifically configured for utilizing Omega Bio-tek’s Mag-BIND® chemistry for nucleic acid purification. The system offers speed, flexibility, ease of use, and superior pipetting performance at a surprisingly affordable price. It incorporates predefined methods for processing a wide variety of sample types and is backed by Omega Bio-tek’s and Hamilton’s renowned service and applications support.

Mag-BIND® Blood & Tissue DNA HDQ 96 Kit

  • Bead-based: Scalable DNA purification; 100 µL to 10 mL input
  • Rapid: Process 96 1 mL or 24 10 mL samples in 2.5 hours
  • Quality: High quality DNA is suitable for qPCR, NGS, etc.
  • Automatable: Adaptable on most open-ended liquid handlers
  • Cost-effective: 60% less than the competition, on an average

The Mag-BIND® Blood & Tissue DNA HDQ 96 Kit is designed for high quality genomic DNA purification from a wide variety of sample types. Predefined Firefly NIMBUS 96 methods are available for using this kit to process whole blood, buccal swabs, tail snips, dried blood spots, etc. but is also adaptable to other open-ended liquid handling platforms. E-Z 96® Spin-Out can be used in conjunction with this kit to provide a fast and convenient way to process buccal swabs and dried blood spots in a high throughput fashion.

Mag-BIND® cfDNA Kit

  • Rapid: Process 192 samples in 2 hours
  • Bead-based: Scalable DNA purification; 500-4,000 µL input with 50 µL elution volume
  • Quality: Minimal gDNA contamination
  • Automatable: Adaptable on most open-ended liquid handlers
  • Cost-effective: 50% less than the competition, on an average

The Mag-BIND® cfDNA Kit is designed for rapid and reliable isolation of circulating, cell-free DNA from 500-4,00 µL plasma or serum samples. This kit can be processed manually or with automated platforms. The procedure eliminates the need for funnels and vacuum steps, providing hands-free operation in automated protocols. The uniquely formulated binding buffer allows for large sample volumes to be processed in automated formats with 4 mL of serum or plasma being processed in 24-well plates. The high binding capacity of the beads allows for lower volumes of magnetic particles needed, thus reducing the final elution volume required. 4 mL of serum or plasma can be eluted in as low as 50 µL.
