No, the mixing sleeve is sterilized by ethylene oxide and is disposable.

No, autoclaving it may affect the structure of the adapter. We recommend using disinfector such as hypochloric acid or ethyl alcohol to do sterilization.

850µl, i.e. without solution splashing out during mixing.

Yes, you can connect 2 tablets to one instrument and both tablets are able to control the abGenix™.

The UV light will stop when the instrument door is opened. abGenix™ will continue with the UV disinfection upon closing the instrument door again.

The window of experiment cabin door is tinted for UV protection. It is possible to have normal LED lighting but it requires rewiring and assembly.

Its lifespan ranges from 3 to 5 years depending on the usage frequency. It is recommended to replace the UV light bulb when the UV intensity is lower than 70µW/cm.

The abGenix™ can be placed inside a biosafety cabinet, but since the instrument may shake within a certain range, it is necessary to strengthen the biosafety cabinet. The exterior is not resistant to UV light.

Yes, by utilizing the adapter, both strips and plate can be used concurrently in a run.

The abGenix™ will prompt a message allowing the operator to choose between continuing or ending the experiment run after power has resumed.

No, the elution volume is fixed due to the pre-filled condition of the cartridges.

It is not recommended to reduce the volume any lower than 60µl, which is required for proper mixing. Furthermore, results are not guaranteed.

Yes, the protocol is optimized that way.

The temperature in the manual is the optimum performance parameter. This has been done many times without the viral RNA degrading. It is not recommended to change the temperature parameter.

All our elution buffer are made without EDTA.

Size of the beads may differ for each kit and have different binding capacity.

Due to reagent drops hanging on and liquid residues on foil film, the actual measured elution buffer volume may be less than 60µl or 100µl. PCR result will not be affected should the difference be within 10µl. Also, if the difference between start volume and final volume is within 20µl, the PCR reaction should work just as well. This difference is mainly caused by evaporation during the extraction process.

The lysis temperature in the protocol is referring to the heating block temperature; the actual temperature of the place will not exceed 60°C.
