Omega Bio-Tek Mag-Bind Blood DNA HIV Kit
Omega Bio-Tek announced the launch of its Mag-Bind Blood DNA HV kit, which extracts genomic DNA from large volume blood samples in a fully automated solution. The firm's kit combines extraction chemistry on the Hamilton Microlab STAR liquid platform to provide expedited results for applications including biorepositories, genomics research, and pharmacogenetics that require massive amounts of DNA extraction. The firm believes that the kit will allow researchers to process up to twenty-four 10 milliliters blood samples in 2.5 hours without compromising DNA yield and quality. Omega Bio-tek business director Travis Butts noted that the workflow can perform from volumes as small as 250 microliters to 10 milliliters without additional expensive accessories on the Hamilton platform.
