Apostle MagTouch 2000 Nucleic Acids Extraction Automation System

High Quality | Low Cost| 96 Well or 24 Well


The MagTouch 2000 instrument is an automatic extraction and purification system for nucleic acids from various types of biological samples collected in multiple transport media. It can absorb, transfer and release magnetic beads by a magnetic rod and magnetic rod sleeve to separate magnetic beads and samples. The operation is automatic, fast and simple.


  • High-throughput automation platform for nucleic acid extraction
  • Suitably paired with the Apostle MiniGenomicsTM Viral Total NA Isolation Fast Kit
  • Compatible with Apostle MiniMax® High Efficiency cfDNA Isolation Kit and Apostle MiniGenomics® Genomics DNA Isolation Kit
  • Turntable for up to 8 plates
  • 1000 μL maximum volume per well
  • Working time per run: ~30 – 90 mins
  • Convenient compact size: 550 x 620 x 483 mm


The system has been utilized by our clients to extract cell-free DNA and/or RNAs from various volumes of plasma samples.  The system is also easily programmable to adapt with various laboratory settings and needs.  Some example protocols are listed below.
