Purigen Biosystems Ionic Cells to Pure DNA Low Input Kit

Purigen Biosystems has launched its Ionic Cells to Pure DNA Low Input kit for DNA extraction and purification prior to next-generation sequencing or qPCR.

The automated workflow takes one hour and provides consistent yields for as many as 10,00 cultured or sorted cells and as few as 10. According to Purigen, the kit delivers a higher proportion of DNA longer than 20 kb than column-based products. The kit includes six fluidic chips  for use on its benchtop Ionic Purification system and the necessary reagents to process 48 samples.
