The Kurabo™ AutoGenFlex Star® is designed for fully automated genomic DNA extraction and isolation. Short setup time of thirty minutes with no computer needed. Large sample sizes can be completed in less than four hours with 90 samples per day. Less supervision and hands off operation results in higher productivity and lower labor costs. Uses Qiagen™ Flexigene® consumables (not included) to provide a very pure DNA sample for high volume blood assays. Uses a process that pellets the white blood cell nuclei and mitochondria while simultaneously lysing the red blood cells. It then denatures and eliminates the proteins and cellular material using a protease enzyme, thus resulting in a consistantly clean DNA sample.
This system has many built-in features. No computer is required because the touchscreen LCD display does everything. Features include a centrifuge (buckets are not provided), liquid dispenser and waste chute, robotic arm, agitator and lysis system. Easy to use and consistant results.
This machine came from a working facility where it was in use everyday. It was decommissioned by AutoGen and is in excellent shape. It has been tested for manual function and everything checked out fine. These machines sold for around $160000 new: our price is around 10% of that cost. If quick and easy DNA extraction at high volume works for you this would be the perfect addition to your lab at a very reasonable price!
Because of the size and weight of this system it will have to be crated and freighted to you unless you wish to come pick it up at our shop in Sonora California, or we can deliver it in Northern California and the Bay Area. We charge an extra $200 for crating to protect the instrument during shipping. Our crates are some of the finest in the business, built with 3/4″ AC plywood with special feet to prevent forklift damage.
If you have any questions about this unit or shipping costs please feel free to contact us here or give us a call at 209-288-2445. We are here to help and we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Note: In working condition. Needs buckets for centrifuge and Qiagen™ Flexigene® consumables.
