When good goes in, great comes out.  The BioArk Leaf collection kit combines sample collection with better data quality.

Order your BioArk Leaf kits in combination with DNA extraction or all-inclusive extraction and genotyping services and experience the full service convenience of sampling to genotyping.

The kit includes

  • 96-well plate
  • Manual
  • Complete set of tools for collecting sample material
  • Instructions for return shipment of the filled plate for genetic analysis.

Advantages

  • Better data quality from better sample quality
  • Environmentally friendly with reduction in hazardous materials, plastic consumption, carbon emissions, and energy consumption compared with traditional sampling techniques
  • Convenient genotyping by courier concept
  • Easy shipment and customs clearing of desiccated material. (phytosanitary certificate not required, letter of authority may be needed, can be provided)

The BioArk leaf collection kit standardize the quality of the DNA that is extracted and dramatically improve the quality of the resulting genotyping data.

DNA quality without using BioArk Leaf

Genotyping data from plant leaf samples collected without using BioArk Leaf and extracted using non-LGC, Biosearch Technolgies extraction chemistry. The call rate is 71.1%.

KASP genotyping data with BioArk Leaf

Genotyping data from plant leaf samples collected  with the BioArk Leaf and extracted in our service laboratory using sbeadex™ extraction chemistry. The call rate is 99.5%.

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.
