Purigen Biosystems Ionic Cells to Pure DNA Kit

Purigen Biosystems has launched the new Ionic Cells to Pure DNA kit for white blood cell and peripheral blood mononuclear cell control samples.

It can be used to extract high yields of DNA from samples containing 50,000 to 5 million cells and minimizes the need for sample concentration prior to next-generation sequencing. The kit contains six chips and a reagent set to perform DNA extraction from 48 samples on the Ionic Purification System.

Designed to support customers who work with blood cells as a control for experiments with formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tumor tissue, the kit can be used for other applications such as immune cell analysis, biobank archive DNA, and profiling FACS sorted cells.
