Sentosa SX101

Nucleic Acid extraction, PCR set-up and library prep in one


The Sentosa SX101 is a flexible automated pipetting system that offers a unique and easy-to-use workflow for nucleic acid extraction and PCR set-up, for up to 4 assays simultaneously. Throughput of up to 48 samples can be processed within 2 hours.

The tube holder plate that holds the Sentosa SA PCR reagents is color-coded to allow the operator to match it with the corresponding reagent cap colors. This minimizes the risk of placing reagents in the wrong positions. The adaptor that holds the tube holder plate and reagents is kept chilled for temperature sensitive master mixes. The whole PCR set-up is covered during extraction steps to prevent any possibility of contamination to the reagents.
