No more plasma transfers. Cut costs and time to result.
Innovation to help minimize errors and shorten sample prep time
Many analyses of circulating, cell-free DNA (ccfDNA) call for two centrifugation steps to separate plasma in collected blood samples. This means that plasma is manually transferred to fresh tubes twice. Each transfer opens the possibility of mislabelling errors, not to mention the added operator time and increased plastic and biohazardous waste produced.
PAXgene Blood ccfDNA Tubes can now be used directly on the QIAsymphony® SP. No plasma transfers. No secondary tubes.
Process samples in three simple steps:
- Collect blood into PAXgene Blood ccfDNA Tubes* and ship, store or process right away
- Centrifuge to separate plasma and qualify plasma volume for the custom protocol
- Run the tubes on the QIAsymphony with the QIAsymphony PAXgene Blood ccfDNA Kit*
