taco™ Automated Nucleic Acid Extraction System

YES. taco™ extraction kits are designed in conjunction with taco™ Nucleic Acid Automatic Extraction System to ensure optimal performance. We cannot guarantee the extraction efficiency if using the extraction kits of other brands.

NO. Other brands’ accessories are not compatible to be used on taco™ Nucleic Acid Automatic Extraction System.

NO. The “supporting screw” is guarantee for 5 million times without losing accuracy so there is no need for calibration.

The maximal dosage of taco™ UV light is 38 mWs/cm2, which would cause nucleic acid to form dimers that can restrain the PCR reaction. To avoid mentioned damage to nucleic acid, please remove the plate before turning on the UV light.

NO. Heating is no longer required when using the magnetic bead-based technology for nucleic acid extraction.

Turn off the main power switch of taco™ machine, and only switch it on when the power is restored. taco™ built-in system will automatically be repositioned. We recommend you to dispose any previous samples and accessories as they may generate inaccurate results.

NO, if the door is not fully closed and the power is switched on, the alert sound will go off. Please ensure the door is fully closed before turning on the switch.

Please turn off the power and contact your local distributors for repairs.

taco™ Nucleic Acid Extraction Kit

NO. taco™ Total DNA and taco™ DNA/RNA Extraction Kits are designed to be used on taco™ Nucleic Acid Automatic Extraction System to achieve the best results.

NO. taco™ DNA/RNA Extraction Kits will purify both RNA and DNA simultaneously.

Since DNA virus is a small fragment of nucleic acid, we recommend to use taco™ DNA/RNA Extraction Kits to achieve better results than taco™ DNA Extraction Kits.

taco™ Total DNA and taco™ DNA/RNA Extraction Kits can be used to extract nucleic acids from animal tissues, whole blood, bacteria and many others. The extraction results will be optimized when the nucleic acids are being properly preserved and followed sample preparation procedure.
