Nucleic Acid Extraction

It is critical to use the most robust extraction chemistry available in a fully automated environment in order to ensure high quality genetic, genomic and transcriptomic analyses. Chemagen chemistry is tissue source and nucleic acid agnostic allowing for the standardization of all nucleic acid processing on a single platform.

• PerkinElmer Chemagic 360 x2

Nucleic acid extraction of specimens is performed on the PerkinElmer Chemagic 360’s. Input material includes blood, tissue, and saliva. The instrument utilizes bead-based extraction chemistry on reactions as small as 10ul or as large as 10mL.

• Biosafety Cabinet

Used for PBMC isolation to maintain sterile conditions.
