Sygnis TruePrime Apoptotic Cell-Free DNA Amplification Kit

Sygnis has launched the TruePrime apoptotic cell-free DNA amplification kit under the Expedeon brand. The kit enables accurate DNA amplification using cell-free DNA from plasma, serum, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, and other bodily fluids. The kit uses a multiple displacement amplification method to overcome common limitations of cell-free DNA analysis of such fluids, Sygnis said, adding it provides users with "excellent sensitivity, error-free amplification in hih yields, and a streamlined workflow for reduced hands-on time."
