Nonacus Bead Xtract cfDNA Kit
Nonacus has launched the Bead Xtract cfDNA kit, a scalable, automatable extraction tool that uses paramagnetic beads to obtain high-quality cell-free DNA from plasma or serum. According to the company, the kit allows a flexible input volume of 0.5 ml to 10 ml plasma or serum, avoiding the need for multiple cfDNA extractions. It can be run manually or as a fully automated process and is compatible with a range of open-source liquid handling systems. The company cites a turnaround time of less than 70 minutes for manual use, with under 30 minutes of hands-on time.
