Automated Purification and Extraction System: KingFisher Duo Prime

Kingfisher Duo Prime is the most versatile compact benchtop sample prep instrument in the lab for 6 or 12 samples per run. Consistent extraction and purification of DNA, RNA, protein, and cells.

KingFisher instruments automate extraction of DNA, RNA, protein, and cells by moving magnetic beads (not liquids), leading to clean extractions and enabling consistent results. Using a simple process (bind, wash, elute), KingFisher instruments can automate the extraction of any analyte of interest with a bead on it. Combining the KingFisher Duo Prime system with Dynabeads or MagMAX nucleic acid extraction kits allows a diverse range of sample inputs and sample types to be processed.

In addition, Thermo Scientific™ KingFisher™ Duo Prime magnetic particle processor contains an ultraviolet C (UVC) light inside the instrument to eliminate most bacterial and viral contaminants, for example: caused by sample handling. The UVC irradiation induces damage to the DNA of the organisms, thereby inhibiting their growth.
