For today’s sensitive clinical genetic testing applications, making a fast and affordable isolation of high-quality nucleic acids from whole blood or plasma samples is a key bottleneck. But hey, here is a solution!
Nucleic acid quantity and purity is crucial to perform the best NGS (Next Generation Sequencing), as well as other downstream processes like chip-based assays. Furthermore, degradation directly impacts the nucleic acids ability to generate quality results from your testing. Another crucial point is the recovery rate. To answer those issues, PerkinElmer’s chemagic instrumentation and kits offer reliable solutions.
The first advantage to highlight is that you only need a 200μl sample of human blood, which is incredibly small – almost nothing!
Furthermore, there is no need to do additional treatments (such as the ethanol precipitation) on primary samples prior to extraction…and this certainly saves time!
As you always need to be efficient, another improvement with this tool is the processing of 96 samples, which takes less than an hour and gives you ready to use DNA with high yields and purity.
