Stratec Molecular InviMag Free Circulating DNA Kit

Stratec Molecular has launched its InviMag Free Circulating DNA Kit/IG, which enables efficient, fully automated purification of cfDNA fragments. The kit is designed for the company's InviGenius PLUS instrument that uses an automated system for magnetic bead-based isolation of nucleic acids in up to 12 samples in parallel. The automated workflow allows researchers to concentrate isolated cfDNA to a low elution volume of 100 μl for further detection and analysis of different biomarkers, the company said.
