Our nucleic acid extraction team provides DNA and RNA extraction services to meet the demands of any project. LGC developed extraction protocols from a wide range of starting materials and volumes which enable the delivery of off-the-shelf services for most applications or bespoke solutions utilising our unique range of in-house technologies.

We are combining experience support and technology to deliver cost-effective nucleic acid extraction solutions:

  • High or low volume extraction solutions for any concentration of DNA (Oragene, cohort studies)
  • Buffy coat samples, FTA cards, tissue & plant material and other samples
  • Rapid sample turnaround and full sample traceability
  • Customised solutions developed for challenging extraction projects
  • Options for full ISO certified service (DIN EN ISO 9001:2008)
  • Full application and technical support.

Elution of DNA samples in our service laboratory

All DNA samples that are extracted in the LGC extraction facility are eluted in Tris buffer containing EDTA. Large volume blood and buffy coat extractions are eluted in TE (10mM Tris, 1mM EDTA). All other samples are eluted in Te (10mM Tris, 0.1mM EDTA).


Don't just take our word for it

"The partnership with LGC was a success story, both the in-sourced and outsourced elements of the partnership. LGC not only contributed to develop the in-house DNA extraction and high- throughput KASP genotyping capabilities at SDTC through extensive training by LGC staff, experienced with operating high-throughput laboratory; but was also able to deliver an outsourced solution to augment capacity using equipment, chemistry and data analysis tools identical to those available at SDTC."
