PerkinElmer chemagic 360 Instrument

Automated Nucleic Acid Purification


The chemagic™ 360 nucleic acid purification instrument delivers transiently magnetized rods to attract beads after binding to the nucleic acids. It’s the optimal automated benchtop solution designed for seamless integration into high-throughput SARS-CoV-2 detection workflows.

Cutting-edge technology

Magnetic bead-based isolation. With a dynamic throughput and sample volume capacity, the chemagic™ 360 instrument offers a versatile automated solution for nucleic acid isolation of human DNA, bacteria, and viruses including SARS-CoV-2. 

The chemagic™ 360 utilizes magnetized metal rods to collect pelleted beads from the process solution, and resuspension is achieved by switching magnetism off and turning the rods – no elution buffer needed.


chemagic software provides dependable quality assurance, with features including barcode reading, sample and protocol tracking, pre-installed protocols, LIMS compatible log files, and more.

chemagic dispenser 360 reduces time consuming sample-prep protocols with quick and accurate buffer dispensing and rod heads  available in 12 and 24/96 well plate formats to meet your project needs.
