Medium- to low-throughput DNA and RNA purification from buffy coats

Workflow solutions for medium- to low-throughput nucleic acid isolation from buffy coats

The PerkinElmer workflows for medium- to low-throughput DNA and RNA purification from buffy coats are designed to meet the needs of laboratories requiring the isolation of nucleic acids from tens to a hundred samples per day, with the possibility of easily scaling up to over 150 samples. The ability of handling volumes up to two milliliters per sample makes these workflows ideal for downstream applications requiring high yields of nucleic acids.

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 high yields of ultra-pure nucleic acids both from fresh buffy coats or from fractions that have been stored at 4°C. Sample barcoding and software compatibility with all major LIMSs ensure full sample traceability throughout the entire workflow.
