ELITe Galaxy - Automatic Extraction Kit
The ELITe GALAXY is a complete, CE-IVD bench top solution for Nucleic Acid extraction and PCR set up. The system is enabled with a unique Real-Time PCR menu that includes the largest infectious disease menu for transplant monitoring. The ELITe GALAXY system performs automatically a universal sample preparation based on magnetic beads technology with the ELITe GALAXY 300 Extraction kit and up to 8 multiple PCR set-up operation for qualitative and quantitative applications. The ELITe GALAXY supports up to 48 samples extraction directly from primary tubes and 96 reactions for the PCR setup.
The ELITe GALAXY is controlled by the ELITe GALAXY Software. This Windows 7-based software has been developed and CE IVD validated in combination with ELITe GALAXY 300 Extraction kit and ELITe MGB Real-Time PCR kits with pre-defined and protected protocol. The clear and ease of use graphic user interface allows a secure execution of routine daily works and a full sample and event traceability.
The ELITe GALAXY features advanced technologies for liquid transfer operations like CO-RE technology, dual liquid level detection, monitoring of air displacement and anti-droplet control. They guarantee accurate and reliable pipetting operations and prevent the risk of contamination.
The ELITe GALAXY instrument is general purpose equipment for in vitro diagnostic applications validated for specific IVD applications with ELITech Group Molecular Diagnostics kits. Usage of any other kits or kit components on the ELITe GALAXY is only allowed after a validation process.
The ELITe Galaxy system is an automated and flexible solution dedicated to high throughput laboratories to perform an ease-of-use sample preparation and PCR setup.
