One BioMed X8 HMW DNA Cartridge Kits

One BioMed has launched X8 HMW DNA Cartridge Kits for automated extraction of high molecular weight (HMW) DNA for long-read sequencing and genome assembly. Powered by the OneTouch instrument, the kit can help isolate HMW DNA up to 2 Mb in length from various sample types, including bacteria, plants, cell culture, tissue, and peripheral blood mononuclear cells. The kits are powered by One BioMed's Xceler8 technology, which uses a gentle, rapid, chemistry-based method to selectively bind, gently cluster, and purify intact DNA using controlled fluidics, the company said.
