PCR/DNA Extraction and Purification

Automated and Fully Automated PCR Robots

PCR is a widely used technique, but it's also very hands-on and time-consuming. Additionally, manual PCR does have some challenges that can affect the final result of the test.By automating the process with PCR robots, labs can increase throughput and reduce the hand-on time for your staff and improve accuracy and precision for more reliable [...]

DNA Extraction Methods Explained

While DNA extraction methods have been around for over 150 years, ever since Friedrich Miescher isolated it for the first time in 1869, countless iterations of DNA extraction protocols have occurred since then. Different lab extraction systems are used depending on the type of cell, how the cells have been preserved (e.g., in formalin versus [...]

Why Do You Need Fully-automated Real-time PCR?

Real-time PCR, or qPCR, is a necessary process that is a step-up from conventional PCR. In qPCR, data is collected throughout the process, merging the amplification and detection steps into a single action through fluorescent chemicals. qPCR is divided into dye-based and probe-based qPCR; probe-based real-time PCR is often the chosen form for heightened specificity.Because [...]
