MolGen Extraction Systems – what are
the differences?


They look quite similar, but the PurePrep 96 is very different from the PurePrep 24, and the same goes for the PurePrep 32 and PurePrep 24D. The benchtop systems for DNA and RNA purification all utilize magnetic separation technology from different matrices by making use of magnetic beads. However, they differ in sample volume and the number of samples per run.

Flexibility in throughput, volume & usability

The difference is mainly in throughput and sample volume. The PurePrep 96 is ideal for high-throughput with its ability to process 96 samples with shortest the standard protocol being around 40 minutes, whereas the PP32, 24 & 24D are most suitable for low throughput assays but can process a wider range of sample volumes.

The PurePrep 96 and PurePrep 24 work with a rotary table, allowing for easy set-up. The PurePrep 32 and 24D work differently and will do the full process in a single deepwell plate or tube strip.
