The SX-8G IP-Star is a desktop robotic system designed to perform fully automated Immunoprecipitation using magnetic particles. Starting with sheared chromatin or DNA and ending up with purified DNA ready for further analysis. The SX-8G IP-Star is intended as a microtiter diluting and dispensing device. A nozzle moves in directions of X, Y and Z-axis to dispense reagents, to homogenize during incubation times and to perform magnetic separation. No claim or representation is intended for its use in identifying any specific organism or for a specific clinical use (diagnostic, prognostic, therapeutic, or blood banking). It is the user’s responsibility to validate the performance of the SX-8G IP-Star for any particular use, since its performance characteristics have not been validated for any specific organism. The SX-8G IP-Star may be used in clinical diagnostic laboratory systems after the laboratory has validated their complete system as required by CLIA ‘88 regulations in the U.S. or equivalents in other countries.
