epMotion® 5073m

epMotion® 5073m

The 5073m automated liquid handling systems is tailored for nucleic acid purification (NAP), but is flexible for other liquid handling tasks. The integrated magnetic finger and ThermoMixer module is ideal for our MagSep reagent kits, saving hands-on time and improving the reproducibility of results. It is controlled by EasyCon tablet or MultiCon PC and can be configured with CleanCap. The M5073 comes with specific tools and accessories for NAP with our MagSep reagent kits.      

Product Information

The epMotion 5073m: 2 systems in one. First, a perfect system for automated nucleic acid purification of 1 to 24 samples with special MagSep reagents. The Eppendorf EasyCon tablet or MultiCon PC and Prep Assistant software provide simple operation with step-by-step guidance through the process. Secondly, it is a flexible system for automating time-consuming and complex pipetting procedures with the epBlue™ software, making routine Liquid Handling tasks easier than ever. The pipetting procedure is more precise, reproducible and fully standardized, making your workplace more ergonomic and safer. The customized epMotion M5073 is delivered with all accessories required for nucleic acid purification; only consumables need to be ordered separately.

Eppendorf 3D-MagSep™ Technology

The combination of magnetic finger module and ThermoMixer facilitates magnetic separation, mixing, and temperature control in one location.
Used with the specific PrepRack it facilitates DNA or RNA purifications from 1 to 24 samples out of 2-mL Safe-Lock tubes. Magnetic fingers are drawn in or out of the PrepRack allowing mixing, washing, and separation of magnetic beads for nucleic acid purification or various other applications.

Dedicated reagents kits

Free-up your time for scientific work - Whether your sample is tissue, cells, bacteria, bloodor cell-free body fluids, the MagSep Tissue gDNA, MagSep Blood gDNA or MagSep Viral DNA/RNA kit is your smart solution. The kits are designed for rapid automated small-scale preparation of highly pure nucleic acids based on robust magnetic bead separation usingthe epMotion M5073 or 5075m. The ready to use reagents come in 4 special trays for 1–24 preparations each. Benefit from minimal hands-on time with ready to use reagents, special epMotion reagent tray, and easy software assistants. Get superior yield and purity versus manual or other automation methods.

  • Automatic recognition of kit type and available reagents
  • Variable use of 1–24 sample reagents per tray and intermediate storage possible
  • 25–200 µL variable choice of elution volume (concentration vs. yield)
  • DNA LoBind Safe-Lock tubes included for maximum DNA recovery

Reuse Tips Feature

The new epMotion systems can reuse tips as e.g. economical choice for multiple wash stepsof the same well. Here special epT.I.P.S. Motion SafeRack tips are recommended. Pipette tipswill be placed back into the position of the box they were removed from. Returned tips will be reused within an application for the same source vessel.› Individual compartments in rack to avoid cross-contamination between used tips› Available as standard and PCR clean quality for 50, 300 and 1000 µL
