High-throughput nucleic acid extraction from swabs

Workflow solutions for high-throughput DNA or RNA isolation from buccal swabs

The PerkinElmer workflows for high-throughput nucleic acid purification from buccal swabs have been developed for laboratories processing large numbers of samples on a regular basis. Depending on the needs of your lab, the PerkinElmer solution can include the automated transfer of samples to plates compatible with the nucleic acid extraction unit and optional automated PCR setup to streamline sample analysis.

Based on the combination of dedicated instruments and chemagen proprietary M-PVA Magnetic Bead technology, PerkinElmer high-throughput DNA and RNA purification workflows ensure the efficient isolation of ultra-pure nucleic acids. Sample barcoding and software compatibility with all major LIMS ensure full sample traceability throughout the entire workflow.
