taco™ mini Automatic Nucleic Acid Extraction System

The taco™ mini Automatic Nucleic Acid Extraction System applies the advanced magnetic particle transfer technology to purify nucleic acids for up to 8 samples in less than 30 minutes. High-quality nucleic acids extracted from a wide range of sample materials are ready for immediate use in downstream applications.

Compact

• Light weight and small footprint
• Bench top design, portable device

Simple

• One-touch operation
• Pre-programmed protocol
• LED status display

Versatile

taco™ mini can be applied to purify materials such as animal tissues, plant tissues and human specimens (serum, plasma, buffy coat, whole blood, and respiratory swab).

Diversified

Purified DNA/RNA can be used for a wide range of applications, such as molecular diagnostics, genetic identity testing, biomedical researches, and gene expression analysis.

CE-IVD model available

Performance

Fig 1. With taco™ Total DNA Extraction Kit, genomic DNA can be extracted from various sample types.


Fig 2. With taco™ Total DNA Extraction Kit, the result shows high consistence among samples from the same person's whole blood.


Fig 3. No Cross-contamination to neighbor well. PCR templates are extracted from 200 μl spiked plasmid (1x106, lane 1, 3, 5 and 7) and non-template control (lane 2, 4, 6 and 8).
