Autogen FlexSTAR+



The FlexSTAR+ is AutoGen’s newest solution for fully automated genomic DNA extraction and isolation from large volumes of whole blood. It is the next generation of our FLEX STAR model with the same proven reliability and chemistry but now with the ability to completely automate the DNA extraction process from primary tube sampling to final DNA elution into storage tubes. 
The FlexSTAR+ is the first and only totally automated system using Qiagen’s FlexiGene chemistry to isolate genomic DNA free of RNA and other contaminants. This proven precipitation chemistry produces pure, high molecular weight gDNA ready for immediate use and long-term storage. In addition, the FlexSTAR+ has the ability to read and record barcodes on primary tubes throughout the process to preserve sample integrity.
