Sentosa SX Virus Total Nucleic Acid Plus Kit

Magnetic beads-based nucleic acid extraction from virus in biological specimens

PRINCIPLES AND PROCEDURES

The Sentosa SX system combines reversible adsorption of nucleic acids with the convenient handling of magnetic beads.

Nucleic acids are adsorbed on the magnetic beads. During magnetic extraction, the beads are retained in the deepwell plate while non-nucleic acid components of the samples are pipetted out of the plate. After extraction, nucleic acid is eluted from the beads, aspirated and transferred to a new plate. Eluted nucleic acid is then ready for downstream process.

The extraction procedure is safe and generates reproducible results. It is a 4-step procedure, (1) lysis of samples, (2) adsorption of nucleic acid on magnetic beads, (3) washing of all non-nucleic acid components, (4) elution of nucleic acid from the beads. The entire extraction procedure is performed automatically by the Sentosa® SX101 instrument.
