SmartLid is based on a proprietary magnetic key and lid, designed to quickly and easily transfer magnetic beads and attached nucleic acids through a series of three simple sample extraction steps: Lysis, Wash, and Elution. The process is power‑free, reduces pipetting, and can extract twelve samples in under ten minutes. Using this technology, we created the Viral DNA/RNA Extraction Kit, bulk packaged for 50 extractions.
Twelve samples to eluted DNA/RNA in less than ten minutes.
Ultra-pure DNA/RNA for sensitive downstream applications in molecular biology.
Various Sample Types
Viral nucleic acids can be extracted from cell-free or nearly cell-free liquid media including VTM, eNAT, PBS, water, saliva, serum, plasma, urine, etc.
Easy to use
Simple process does not require any powered equipment.
SmartLid Rack and SmartLid Shaker provide simultaneous processing of twelve samples.
Designed to minimise plastic waste.
Carton and paper inserts made with recycled content and are fully recyclable.
Magnetic keys are reusable, reducing waste.
PCR, RT-PCR, qPCR, RT-qPCR, LAMP, RT-LAMP, dPCR, RT-dPCR (and other amplification chemistries)
Superparamagnetic beads (silica)

How it Works
SmartLid is based on a novel (patent pending) magnetic key and lid, designed to quickly and easily transfer magnetic beads and attached nucleic acids through a series of three simple sample extraction steps: Lysis, Wash, and Elution.
The visible speed and efficiency of SmartLid is due to superparamagnetic beads, delivering ultra-fast extractions.
Capture: Magnetic beads capture DNA/RNA for transfer between tubes.
Collect: Inverting the tube with the
Magnetic Key collects the magnetic
beads onto the SmartLid.
Transfer: Within seconds the liquid is clear, and collection is complete and ready to transfer.
Using SmartLid is an easy, simple process that requires no electricity, minimal pipetting, and only three simple steps, enabling market leading ease-of-use.
