For optimal system performance, critical safeguards are incorporated into the easyMAG® process:

  • Monitoring of on-board extraction reagents
  • Sensing of tips and sample vessels
  • Scanning and continuous laser liquid sensing
  • Thorough traceability from start to finish
    • samples
    • process documents


First in BOOM technology

BOOM technology, first patented by bioMérieux, is a gold standard for the universal extraction of RNA and DNA. It’s our in-house expertise of this technology that sets our extraction chemistry apart. Based on the ability of silica to bind DNA and RNA in high salt concentrations, BOOM’s leading performance is recognized in a number of papers and comparative evaluations*.

*For example, Rutjes et al. showed that with the miniMAG “RNA levels increased at least 100 to 500 times” (Rutjes et al. , AEM,(71), 7, 2005, pp 3734-3740). Tang et al. showed that “miniMAG produced the highest quantity of nucleic acids and the best precision amongst the three systems [tested]”. (Tang et al., JCM, (43), 9, 2005, pp4830-4833).

Stationary Sample Approach

  • Entire extraction process takes place in a single well
  • One fixed aspiration tip per sample
  • Greatly reduced potential for sample loss and cross contamination
  • Highly simplified, reliable workflow

Smart Disposable Design

  • Only one set of sample run disposables for 8 samples
  • Vastlyreduced waste and handling
  • Eliminates the need for multiple racks of pipette tips and multi-well processing plates

On-Board Reagents

  • Minimal handling of extraction buffers from run to run
  • augments streamlined workflow
  • Extraction buffers bar-coded with lot#/expiration into for improved traceability
  • 30-day stability on boardthe instrument

Universal Magnetic BOOM Chemistry

  • Total nucleic acid extraction of both RNA and DNA
  • No need for separate types of purification kits enhances simplicity and reduces inventory
  • Enhanced magnetic silica chemistry results in high-quality nucleic acid for various molecular applications


“In our side-by-side comparisons with other automated nucleic acid extraction platforms, the NUCLISENS® EASYMAG® demonstrated better extraction efficiency with higher yields of viral DNA and greater precision as evidenced by lower coefficient of variation values.  In addition, the instrument offered a faster turn-around time of 24 samples in approximately 45 minutes with use of a streamlined off-board lysis workflow.”

Steven B. Kleiboeker, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer, Viracor-IBT Laboratories,Lee’s Summit, Missouri - USA

“NUCLISENS® EASYMAG® is a platform offering incredible flexibility for virology routine: generic nucleic acid isolation, multiple specimen types, variable input and elution volumes, various downstream applications. A flexible system allowing the laboratory to react promptly to unexpected events, e.g., the pandemic influenza A (H1N1) 2009.”

Dr David Boutolleau, Groupe Hospitalier Pitié-Salpêtrière et Université Pierre et Marie Curie Paris 6, Paris - France

“We use the NUCLISENS® EASYMAG® system for DNA and RNA extraction in many molecular biology assays, for commercially developed kits as well as for in-house developed reactions. The advantage of this system is that it is useful for extracting RNA and DNA from different clinical specimens, in one run only.”
