When good goes in, great comes out. The BioArk Seed Collection Kits combine convenient sample collection with smooth project logistics. Using these kits, you can collect your seeds directly into an extraction-capable receptacle avoiding unexpected sample transfer fees and delays while allowing for easy stackable storage and shipping. Order your BioArk Seed kits in combination with DNA extraction or All-inclusive extraction and genotyping services and experience the full service convenience of sampling to genotyping.  DNA purified from BioArk Seed kits are compatible with both KASP genotyping or Next Generation Sequencing technologies.

The kit includes

  • 96-well plate suitable for seed extraction
  • Environmentally friendly reusable cap mat
  • Manual
  • Instructions for return shipment of the filled plate for genetic analysis.

Advantages

  • Quality data from consistent sample quality
  • Environmentally friendly with reduction plastic consumption and reusable cap mat
  • Convenient genotyping by courier concept
  • Easy shipment and customs clearing (phytosanitary certificate not required, letter of authority may be needed, can be provided)

The BioArk Seed kits standardize the quality of the DNA that is extracted and dramatically improve the quality of the resulting genotyping data.

Use of the BioArk Seed kits eliminates fees and delays to transfer seeds into an extraction format and maps samples to specific wells.

How to order and receive the kit

  • Fill out the BioArk quote request form.
  • Sign and return quote or provide a PO.
  • We will confirm the project details. (If you would like genotyping included we will ask you to submit the sequences of the SNPs.)
  • We ship you the sample collection kits.

Collect samples

  • Collect your sample material according to the protocol and return the filled plates to including the sample plate data.

Service laboratories

  • Once we receive your samples, we perform the DNA extraction and optionally design the assays and perform genotyping in our service laboratories.

Receive data

  • Once your project is complete, and data has been analysed, we will e-mail you the results. Typically, you will receive an e-mail with a link to your data file on our secure web server.
