Sage Science SageHLS Platform

Sage Science has launched SageHLS, a platform designed to extract and purify extremely large DNA fragments directly from bacterial and tissue cultures, blood samples, or other cell sources. SageHLS can purify DNA into fragments ranging from 50 kilobases to 2 megabases, providing the long fragments needed for resolving haplotypes, structural variants, and other large or linkled genomic elements. For most samples, SageHLS can recover at least a microgram of DNA, a sufficient volume for common genome applications. Users can currently perform traditional library prep after purification on the platform, but later versions will directly incorporate this step for a more streamlined workflow, Sage Science said.
