Hamilton Robotics has announced a tested and verified protocol for automation of the Promega Wizard SV 96 Plasmid DNA Purification System.
Developed in collaboration with Promega, this high-throughput method purifies DNA from pelleted bacterial culture samples using Hamilton's Microlab Star liquid-handling workstation.
The method processes up to 96 plasmid samples in 30 minutes or less, with consistent results and no detectable cross-contamination.
The purified plasmid can be used directly for automated fluorescent DNA sequencing, restriction enzyme digestion and other downstream molecular-biology processes.
Many of today's molecular-biology research applications require rapid isolation of pure plasmid DNA; automation can meet these high-throughput needs.
The flexible Hamilton Microlab Star workstation features air-displacement pipetting and performs a range of liquid-handling and vacuum-based tasks.
This workstation can also be used with the Promega Wizard SV 96 PCR Clean-Up System, which requires a vacuum manifold, shaker and plate gripper in addition to liquid handling.
