nucleic acid purification

One BioMed was spun out of Singapore's Agency for Science, Technology, and Research to  develop a point-of-care diagnostic platform for infectious disease.

The firm's technology can perform in-droplet centrifugation, 10-second cell lysis, and sound wave-based PCR on the surface of an inexpensive polymer chip.

The team developed an equipment-free dipstick device using untreated cellulose-based paper to quickly collect and purify genetic material for amplification.

The company's recently launched nucleic acid isolation and purification kit is just one of several new products the company hopes bring to the market over the next few years.

Roche is buying Lumora's heat elution technology, which enables nucleic acid isolation in minutes, as opposed to hours. 

DNA purification firm Diffinity will become a business unit of Chiral following the completion of the deal.

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

Meridian Bioscience has developed a simple, equipment-free, rapid nucleic acid purification method for use with a variety of clinical specimens, and demonstrated that it enables similar analytical and clinical sensitivity as current commonly used methods such as silica-based puri

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – German firm Analytik Jena today said it has acquired all remaining shares of its subsidiary AJ Roboscreen.

Diffinity Genomics said this week that it has been awarded a pair of grants worth more than $200,000 from the National Human Genome Research Institute to further develop rapid nucleic acid purification methods.
