DNA purification kits

MasterPure™ DNA Purification Kits generate high yields of genomic DNA from virtually any source in under 60 minutes. The technology is solution based and may be scaled up or down as needed to deliver high quality samples for use in a range of applications including NGS.

RNA purification kits

MasterPure RNA Purification Kits produce high yields of total cellular RNA from a variety of biological materials in under 60 minutes. Like the MasterPure DNA Kits, this technology is solution based and delivers highly purified RNA that can be used directly in many applications such as RNA-seq, RT-PCR, and microarray analysis.

sbeadex™ magnetic beads

Our technology solutions for nucleic acid extraction include the use of customisable kits incorporating surface-coated superparamagnetic beads. These beads are suitable for use on robotic systems including our oKtopure™ DNA extraction platform and produce high yields of high-quality DNA from a range of sample materials via a novel two-step binding mechanism.

Learn more about how our sbeadex kits can be tailored to your requirements and accelerate the extraction of your DNA.

DNA purification instrumentation

Our oKtopure™ and Genespin™ automated DNA extraction platforms utilise different extraction technologies to combine high sample throughputs with the delivery of highly purified DNA. The instruments are suitable for a wide range of downstream applications including Sanger and next generation sequencing, SNP genotyping, and a range of PCR-based applications.

DNA shearing

Consistent DNA shearing into appropriately sized DNA fragments is a critical step prior to starting DNA fragment library preparation. To ensure you start with optimally sheared DNA, we’ve partnered with Diagenode, a leading manufacturer of water bath sonicators, to supply you with the best DNA shearing instruments for your NGS experiments.
