New Technical Note cfDNA purification

Technical Note about cfDNA extraction with chemagic kits

New Technical Note cfDNA extraction

New Technical Note about high-throughput cfDNA isolation from plasma

PerkinElmer chemagen has developed the chemagic cfDNA Kits which enable the automated and efficient extraction of circulating cell-free DNA from 0.5 - 5 ml plasma in 24-well or 96-well format in maximal 2 hours with minimal hands-on time. Furthermore, the kits show equivalent yields as well as purities compared to a manual silica-spin based kit.

CE-IVD Mark Update for PerkinElmer® SARS-CoV-2 Real-Time RT-PCR Assay

The range of sample materials was upgraded, therefore the CE-IVD marked PerkinElmer® SARS-CoV-2 Real-time RT-PCR assay can be used for oropharyngeal, nasopharyngeal swabs and now for saliva samples as well. In addition, it is now possible to perform the SARS-CoV-2 detection with pooled samples of up to 5 individuals showing an acute Covid-19 infection as well as asymptomatic carriers.

FDA Emergency Use Authorization for Sample Pooling

FDA Emergency Use Authorization for Sample Pooling

PerkinElmer received the FDA EUA authorization to detect SARS-CoV-2 pathogen RNA in pooled samples containing multiple individual respiratory swabs. Furthermore, the PerkinElmer® New Coronavirus Nucleic Acid Detection Kit allows sample pooling on multiple RT-PCR platforms. While other RT-PCR kit manufacturers struggle with accurate detection due to lack of sensitivity, the PerkinElmer kit convinces by the lowest limit of detection.
