Sample material can vary greatly in consistency as well as in sugar, protein and fat composition - all of which can affect the quality and purity of the extracted nucleic acid and the subsequent performance of downstream applications. To provide the most efficient and effective extraction method LGC offers not only a range of different extraction technologies but also the capacity to develop tailor-made kit systems optimised to a particular application.
