AltoStar® Automation System AM16

 

The AltoStar® Automation System AM16 is a robotic pipetting workstation used for sample purification and PCR setup controlled by the AltoStar® Connect software. It is intended to be used in combination with the AltoStar® Purification Kit 1.5, the AltoStar® Internal Control 1.5 and altona Diagnostics PCR Kits for automated purification of nucleic acids and automated assay setup for in vitro diagnostic purposes.


The AltoStar® AM16 is intended for use by professional users trained in molecular biological techniques and the operation of the AltoStar® AM16 instrument.

Key Features

Entire Workflow

  • The AltoStar® AM16 is CE-IVD marked
  • DNA and RNA purification in parallel with one-for-all chemistry AltoStar® PK 1.5 (CE-IVD)
  • Real-time PCR reaction setup by using the altona Diagnostics PCR Kits (CE-IVD)
  • Automated cycler programming with AltoStar® Connect software (CE-IVD)
  • Expandable system for additional thermal cycler (CFX96™ Deep Well Real-Time Detection System-IVD)

Process Safety

  • Traceability: barcoded reagents for full process control
  • Ready to use reagents for consistent quality
  • Lot checking
  • Expiry date checking
  • Total Aspiration and Dispense Monitoring (TADM) – proven technology from Hamilton

High Flexibility

  • All sample types in one run
  • Analyze up to four pathogens from a single sample
  • Combine up to eight Real-Time PCR assays on a 96 well plate
  • Scalable from 1-96 reactions, no minimum batchsize
  • 500 µl and 1000 µl sample volume possible in one run
  • Sample carriers can be unloaded any time after sample processing
  • New purification batch can be started while PCR setup is processed

Any Sample Type

  • CE-IVD marked purification kit validated for whole blood, EDTA plasma, urine, stool and swaps in UTM
  • One purification kit for both DNA and RNA assays
  • One universal Internal Control for entire workflow (AltoStar® Internal Control 1.5, CE-IVD)

Convenience

  • Ready to use reagents for extraction and real-time PCR
  • Use of primary or secondary sample tubes
  • Freely selectable positions for samples
  • Load backup reagents and consumables
  • No refill or mixing of solutions necessary
  • Full access to eluates
  • User friendly control software AltoStar® Connect (see under AltoStar® Product Range)
