Product News Jan 28, 2009
Laboratories are now able to automate their entire workflow, from sample to result, with the addition of two new instruments to the QIAGEN portfolio: Rotor-Gene® Q and QIAgility™. Rotor-Gene Q, QIAGEN’s real-time PCR cycler, and QIAgility, which are designed to enable PCR set-up in a wide range of formats, complete QIAGEN’s platform of automated solutions.
“With our comprehensive portfolio and complete workflow options, QIAGEN is able to offer our customers something very few of our competitors can – standardization and reliability,” says Dr. Wolfgang Leibinger, Global Business Director of Automated Systems at QIAGEN. “This is an absolute necessity when focusing on something as essential as improving human health.”
The centrifugal rotary design of the Rotor-Gene Q makes it a versatile real-time cycler. The advantages of this instrument are amplified when it is used in conjunction with optimized QIAGEN kits designed for streamlined analysis across a wide range of applications.
In addition, QIAGEN has introduced the EZ1® Advanced XL; a low-throughput alternative for nucleic acid purification. This new platform is an enhanced version of the already widely used EZ1 Advanced. With the EZ1 Advanced XL, researchers can now process up to 14 samples simultaneously.
