Sygnis TruePrime Apoptotic Cell-Free DNA Amplification Kit
Sygnis has launched the TruePrime apoptotic cell-free DNA amplification kit under the Expedeon brand. The kit enables accurate DNA amplification using cell-free DNA from plasma, serum, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, and other bodily fluids. The kit uses a multiple displacement amplification method to overcome common limitations of cell-free DNA analysis of such fluids, Sygnis said, adding it provides users with "excellent sensitivity, error-free amplification in hih yields, and a streamlined workflow for reduced hands-on time."
Promega Maxwell RSC PureFood Pathogen Kit
Promega's new Maxwell RSC PureFood Pathogen Kit provides food safety labs with an automated DNA purification methods for PCR-based testing of food pathogens. The kit does not require enzymatic pretreatment and, when used in combination with the Maxwell RSC Instrument, can effectively purify DNA from one to 16 food matrix samples in 40 minutes, the company said.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Ion Torrent Oncomine Myeloid Research Assay
Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced the Ion Torrent Oncomine Myeloid Research Assay, a targeted next-generation sequencing research panel for simultaneous analysis of 74 relevant genes. The panel is designed to interrogate DNA mutations, RNA fusion transcripts, and gene expression levels associated with myeloid cancers in a single run yielding results in two to three days. The Ion Chef System is used for library preparation, reducing total hands-on time to under 45 minutes. In addition, access to the Oncomine Knowledge Reporter will allow users to link variants to relevant labels, guidelines, and global clinical trials. The assay is also fully compatible with the Ion PGM and Ion S5 systems, Thermo Fisher said.
