The product uses spin columns to extract high molecular weight DNA with an average length of 100 kb or more from animal and bacterial cells.

Under the non-exclusive agreement, Germany's Merck will globally distribute RevoluGen's Fire Monkey/Fire Flower kit for the extraction of high molecular weight DNA.

Circulomics, Bionano, Sage Science, RevoluGen, and others have been developing methods for extracting DNA hundreds of kilobases and up to megabases in length.

New research suggests that the physicochemical changes to DNA in a cancer-related methylation landscape can alter a DNA molecule's affinity for gold substrates.

A recently published research paper has shined a spotlight on the potential for manufactured sample prep products to harbor contaminating DNA sequences that can confound the results of highly sensitive molecular detection techniques such as next-generation sequencing, especially

A team from the University of Washington has developed a device that uses nanotips and electric field manipulation to concentrate and extract DNA from biological samples for subsequent PCR or other analysis.

MacConnell Research has been awarded $483,000 by the National Institutes of Health for the first year of a two-year project to ready a low-cost, cassette-based automated DNA purification technology for commercialization.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has made available for licensing a DNA extraction and isolation method that its inventors claim is more efficient, sensitive, and selective than current commercial DNA extraction kits.
