Nucleic Acid Purification for
Clinical research laboratories around the world can scale up their infectious disease research by automating their nucleic acid extraction workflows. Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a comprehensive range of technologies and solutions for infectious disease research, including sample preparation solutions with bead-based MagMAX chemistry and KingFisher automation instruments that help maximize time and resources. We offer guidance and solutions for research in respiratory, sexually transmitted, blood-borne, and gastrointestinal pathogen extraction workflows.
Designed to recover RNA and DNA from viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic pathogens from a variety of biological samples for downstream applications such as qPCR and NGS.
Optimized further with a proprietary enzyme mix that enables lysis and nucleic acid recovery from some of the toughest pathogens, such as gram-positive bacteria, yeast and fungi.
Optimized for efficient and fast nucleic acid isolation from stool samples, allowing for high-quality, inhibitor-free DNA and RNA to be recovered in under an hour.
The KingFisher Apex (medium/high throughput) is similar in specifications to the KingFisher Flex, but redesigned with additional capabilities for clinical research, including a barcode scanner, a cooling block, and a UV decontamination lamp.
The fully automated KingFisher Presto (ultrahigh throughput), meant for high-volume labs, also processes up to 96 samples per run, and integrates with a robotic liquid handler.
Sexually transmitted infections (STI), urinary tract infections (UTI), and reproductive health research can all be aided by nucleic acid extraction and recovery using MagMAX Viral Pathogen kits. Our technology provides effective lysis and nucleic acid recovery from a wide range of pathogens. The MagMAX Viral/Pathogen Ultra proprietary enzyme mix is optimized for use with Thermo Scientific KingFisher purification systems, helping you streamline the workflow and enable fast, efficient and automated nucleic acid isolation.
Utilize biofluid protocols for STI research including vaginal and genital swabs, urine, and more.

The human gastrointestinal tract is filled with fascinating microbes that researchers are discovering and publishing about regularly. MagMAX Microbiome Ultra Nucleic Acid Isolation Kit or MagMAX Prime Viral/Pathogen NA Isolation Kit paired with the KingFisher Purification system can help labs achieve an efficient work stream for gastrointestinal research. With its bead-beating technology for efficient microbe lysis and optimized workflow for quick, inhibitor-free nucleic acid isolation, researchers can recover DNA and RNA from a wide range of microbes with less hands-on time and fast processing.
Compatible with stool and fecal swab samples with microbiome solutions.

Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms that can infect the blood stream and potentially lead to diseases including HIV, Hepatitis B and C, Malaria and Syphilis. The MagMAX Viral/Pathogen Nucleic Acid Isolation Kit for HIV-1 Dried Blood Spots is a cost-effective solution for blood-borne pathogen research that enhances testing volumes in remote regions and is easily transported for global health and surveillance.
Compatible whole blood, dried blood spots, and plasma for research in bloodborne pathogens.
