DNA extraction systems
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™).
