The AutoLys tube from Hamilton Robotics is a novel, tube-in-tube device designed to automate lysis steps for forensic, genomic, clinical research, food testing and other lab applications. Preparation of cleared lysates from solid matrices is a major bottleneck in many labs. The AutoLys filter tube is designed to be an automation-friendly solution specific to the Hamilton STAR Line of robots with the AutoLys channel. However, the tubes can also be used for manual lysis processing on the bench top.

 

The AutoLys tube is available in the tested Biological purityPLUS grade, guaranteeing that all AutoLys tubes are free from detectable RNase and DNase activity. An additional treatment step during the manufacturing and packing of tube device ensures the effective removal of contaminants by physically destroying any detectable DNA molecules.

  • Secure sample lysis & separation in one tube
  • Carry-over prevention
  • Full sample ID traceability
  • Minimizing sample evaporation
  • Time savings 

 

AutoLys tubes carry out the preparation of cleared lysates from various biological samples such as swabs, cloth cuttings, paper punches, human and animal tissues, plant material, etc., prior to purification of DNA, RNA and other biological molecules. Hamilton offers the unique AutoLys tube as an important accessory for the AutoLys STAR or as a standalone consumable, to minimize time-consuming lysis steps, provide full ID traceability, optimize yields, and increase reproducibility and productivity.

The AutoLys tube consists of:

  • An inner tube with a tightly sealed screw cap that functions as extraction unit
  • A non-DNA-binding membrane in the inner tube
  • An outer tube as collection tube for the clear sample lysate
  • A 2D barcode in the bottom of the collection tube for full sample traceability

 

 

 

 

Secure, easy and fast workflow

  • Time saving, quick 4-step procedure
  • Recommended working volume 500 µL

     

Lysis process

Centrifugation

  • Effective filtration step – secure locking position holds the inner tube in place during the centrifugation step
  • Recommended centrifugation: 2000 xg – 10 minutes

Heating-shaking

  • Optimum heat transfer and efficient shaking of substrate – for the incubation phase due to the tube-in-tube design assembly
  • Processing manually, the AutoLys M tube can be placed in a Hamilton adapter that enables use of third party devices for heating and shaking

AutoLys channel functions

  • De-cap/re-cap tubes and hold caps
  • Lift & lock inner tube in spin position
  • Extract inner tube after centrifugation and hold it
  • Place inner tube in parking position after transfer lysate to destination

 

Easy manual processing with AutoLys M tubes

  • Special blue cap for convenient lift and lock procedure by hand
