SGI-DNA BioXp 3200 Automated Cloning Module

Synthetic genomics firm SGI-DNA has launched the BioXp cloning module for its BioXp 3200 DNA printing system.  The BioXp genomic workstation generates high-quality, linear DNA fragments from custom-designed oligonucleotide pools and reagents. The new cloning module enables the platform to simultaneously deliver up to 24 circular DNA clones from custom DNA sequences. It also allows researchers to obtain clones de novo DNA fragments virtualyl hands-free, thus shortening moleuclar biology workflows, the company noted.
