Genespin utilise spin plates & Kleargene chemistry for high-throughput DNA extraction from plant tissues in 96- & 384-well plates of more than 5,000 extraction per day.learn more
Nucleic acid purification instruments
Significant advances in plant breeding have been facilitated by the rapid and continued advancement of molecular biology-based technologies. These are driving the need for new automated extraction platforms that combine higher sample throughputs with the delivery of highly purified DNA that is suitable for a wide range of downstream applications.
The oKtopure™ robot has been developed to deliver automated DNA extraction from 8 x 96 well microtitre plates in parallel; utilising the proprietary sbeadex magnetic bead based chemistry. The instrument delivers standardised, medium-throughput extractions and results in purification of high quality DNA suitable for all molecular biology based downstream applications including sequencing (NGS, Sanger) and SNP genotyping (e.g. KASP™).
The Genespin™ instrument delivers a higher sample throughput and is optimised for Kleargene, our spin plate-based DNA extraction chemistry. The instrument delivers standardised, semi-automated DNA extractions for downstream PCR-based applications. The instrument is compatible with both 96- and 384-well spin plates, and can be used to perform all lysate transfer and buffer addition steps.
