Web Seminar #HowToFeliX Improve your extraction workflow

Contents & goals of the web seminar

Duration: ~25 min
Language: English

With respect to the raising number of samples within manual nucleic acid extraction workflows, users are faced with a lot of challenges when deciding for automating their processes. Important aspects are the budget, lab space, sample throughput and the reduction of human prone errors, to name a few.

In this web seminar you will learn how we overcome the challenges of an automated Analytik Jena Kit establishment with the CyBio FeliX automated liquid handling platform. We will discuss the transition from the manual to an fully automated workflow and how we implemented the magnetic bead based nucleic acid (NA) extraction workflow on the CyBio Felix, ranging from medium to high sample throughput. You’ll receive comprehensive insights in how to deal with circumstances occurring during the automated kit establishment phase with the device and steps of the NA extraction workflow.

  • Advantages of laboratory automation workflows 
  • Challenges during the optimization of automated nucleic acid extraction
  • How to successfully overcome hardware, software and labware challenges 
  • Recommendations in optimization of liquid handling parameters 

Target group: Users looking to automate their nucleic acid extraction procedures
