Qiagen QIAcube

The Qiagen QIAcube uses advanced technology to process Qiagen spin columns, enabling seamless integration of automated, low-throughput sample prep into the laboratory workflow. All processing steps are performed by the QIAcube – from sample lysis to elution of highly purified nucleic acids or proteins. The QIAcube is preinstalled with protocols for purification of plasmid DNA, genomic DNA, RNA, viral nucleic acids, and proteins.
