Genetic analysis of livestock samples always requires high-quality DNA preparations which are often challenging and labor-intensive to produce. Blood, hair, semen, ear punches, saliva and swabs are all commonly used for analysis of a huge diversity of animal species. Often, sample type specific kit systems are necessary, which typically follow different protocol steps including modified lysis conditions as well as adapted incubation times for binding and washing steps.

Often, automation of high-throughput livestock sample DNA extractions cannot be done in one parallel extraction run, which can be a significant bottleneck for high-throughput labs.

The sbeadex™ livestock kit has been developed to use just one kit, independent of sample origin, to enable extraction runs with livestock samples such as ear punches, blood, hair, saliva or semen to be done in parallel.

sbeadex livestock kits produce very high-quality DNA, suitable for all down-stream applications including next-generation sequencing, KASP™ genotyping and Chip technologies. sbeadex extraction chemistry was developed and optimised for LGCs’ oKtopure™ system but can be used on other automated DNA extraction platforms.
