Why Choose MagBench®

A fast run time of  93 minutes ensures samples can quickly be fed into the next step of the NIPT Workflow for significant time savings and a substantial improvement in the laboratory’s operational efficiency:

  • Requiring only 15 minutes hands-on time, the cfDNA extraction solution is optimised to permit true walkaway capability  
  • The intuitive touchscreen user interface is easy to navigate and allows for quick-start of the extraction process 
  • A dedicated, automated extraction programme allows 78 mins walkaway time 

The MagBench® cfDNA Extraction Solution for Sage™ NIPT Workflow

Using MagBench®, the automated extraction process reduces the risk of human error whilst improving the accuracy and consistency of pipetting: 

  • Tips are single-use and disposed of automatically to reduce contamination risk 
  • Automated UV programme ensures the instrument is thoroughly decontaminated to eliminate carry-over risk on subsequent runs 

 This results in a lower failure rate, a reduction in the number of repeats and a reduced redraw rate for the NIPT workflow 

Users have the freedom to choose the level of plexing they desire. The MagBench® cfDNA Extraction Solution permits flexible throughput of 1 – 16 samples, with:


  • No need to batch samples 
  • No waste of consumables on partial runs, thanks to the cfDNA extraction kits pre-aliquotted reagents 

Yourgene® MagBench® cfDNA Extraction Kit

Specially optimised for use with MagBench® cfDNA Extraction Instrument, in a convenient plug-and-play format for extraction of cfDNA from maternal blood samples for Sage™ 32 NIPT Workflow:  

  • All reagents arrive pre-measured, with all tips and consumables required for extraction already included 
  • Kits benefit from 18 months shelf life and can be stored at ambient temperature  
  • Individual packaging of tip sets ensures they are sterile and free from contaminants   
  • Cartridges are pre-sealed with no requirement to manually remove foil seal, thereby reducing the risk of cross-contamination or loss of reagents due to accidental spillage 
  • Instrument-automated piercing step maintains reservoirs of reagents until appropriate step of the extraction protocol  
  • Unique cross-notch tip design ensures pipetting of precise volumes and is more accurate than manual pipetting
