Automated DNA/RNA extraction, would you use it? - (Aug/24/2005 )

I have to decide about buying a DNA/RNA automated extraction system. Does someone use this? I have EZ1 and M48 from qiagen, Magnapure compact from roche and now Quickgene 810 from fujifilm to evaluate, do you have information about using this apparatus? I need some feedback, specially about RNA extraction, I don't trust in an automated process for this protocol.
Please help! sad.gif



I can't comment on the quality of those machines, but I would love to have a *good* robot to isolate my RNA and DNA. I feel that using mini/midi/maxi kits for RNA and plasmid DNA isolation are among the most boring tasks that I do in the lab...
