sbeadex PCR clean-up Kit

The sbeadex™ PCR clean-up Kit is used to purify PCR products for sensitive downstream applications. Components of the PCR reaction such that primers, unincorporated nucleotides, enzymes and other contaminations are efficiently removed and the protocol can be scaled up or down for other volumes of PCR product.

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 Biosearch Technologies offers not only a range of different extraction technologies but also the capacity to develop tailor-made kit systems optimised to a particular application.
