NGS-Grade DNA/RNA from 0.5 - 4 ml Blood and Buffy Coat

The fast and reasonable priced isolation of high-quality nucleic acids from whole blood samples presents a key bottleneck for today’s sensitive research downstream applications like Next Generation Sequencing, MLPA, chip based assays, Genotyping and many more.

High recovery rates, nucleic acid quantity, high yields, purity and degradation directly impact the ability to generate high quality data for your genetic research. PerkinElmer's chemagicTM research instrumentation and kits offer perfect solutions for this challenge by providing


  • Ready to use DNA/RNA – up to 50 µg DNA/ml blood
  • Fast processing times – 24 samples in 50 min
  • Long DNA fragments – up to 200 kb suitable for NGS
  • Long term stable nucleic acids




Other solutions available for

  • Lower and higher sample volume ranges
  • Serum/plasma, saliva, swabs, feces
  • Total RNA isolation
