Automated Nucleic Acid Isolation Fulfilling Biobanking Needs

Biobanking applications, biospecimen repositories and Mircrobiome research projects are facing demanding and diverse sample materials like whole blood, FFPE-tissue to feces-material in all kind of sample volumes and conditions. To fulfill the needs of sensitive genetic research applications such as whole genome sequencing, real time/digital PCR, and methylation analysis etc., the extraction of high quality and high yield nucleic acids is an essential initial step, especially when it comes to long-term storage of the extracted DNA/RNA samples as required in Biobanking.

PerkinElmer offers the perfect solutions for this challenge by providing

  • Automated Nucleic Acid Isolation, highly flexible in sample volume (10 µl - 10 ml), sample material and throughput
  • Huge variety of processable sample materials (blood, buffy coat, saliva, tissue, feces, etc.)
  • Maximum yields and best purities (up to 50 µg DNA/ml blood; OD260/280 1.9; OD260/230 >2.0)
  • Long term stable nucleic acids
