PENZBERG, Germany, August 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, Roche announced the launch of its new CE certified IVD version of the MagNA Pure 96 System for automated sample preparation. By providing a maximum of lot-to-lot consistency and highest quality, the new MagNA Pure 96 System is designed to even better fulfill the needs of diagnostic customers. In 2011, the IVD version of MagNA Pure 96 was already introduced in the US.

"The proven robustness and unmatched speed of the MagNA Pure 96 System are now available in a CE-marked IVD solution and make the instrument suitable for diagnostic applications in clinical labs around the world," said Gerd Haberhausen, Business Head of qPCR and Nucleic Acid Purification. "This is an important fact for Clinical Research Organizations that operate globally and who need to ensure that clinical trials are based on tools providing consistent quality as well as for global institutions conducting medical research and molecular diagnostic testing."

The MagNA Pure 96 System is able to purify a broad spectrum of human samples and offers LIMS (laboratory information management system) connectivity for safer and more convenient data transfer. It provides ready-to-use reagents and uses a minimal number of consumables for purification of nucleic acids from up to 96 clinical samples in less than 60 minutes. The instrument performance characteristics of MagNA Pure have been established in external trials with model parameters.
