Nucleic acid purification

KEY PROCESS FOR ALL GENOMICS WORKFLOWS

Extraction of nucleic acids from a wide variety of sample types is an integral part of all genomic workflows.

Tecan is working globally with collaboration partners, including Zymo Research, MACHEREY-NAGEL, Promega and Omega-Biotek to develop automated DNA/RNA extraction and clean-up solutions to match your sample types and throughput needs.

***************************************************************************************

Magnetic bead-based purification protocols are well suited for automation, allowing flexible processing of variable sample numbers and avoiding the need for batch processing. Methods can be adapted to increase or reduce the starting sample volume, allowing you to extract exactly the right amount of DNA or RNA needed for your experiments.

Large volume gDNA extraction with the Promega Reliaprep™ large volume HT gDNA isolation system

Freedom EVO® HSM Workstation

Promega and Tecan are partnering to provide a uniquely efficient and reliable system for isolating genomic DNA from large volumes (1-10 ml) of blood, typically in 10 ml Vacutainer® tubes. The Freedom EVO HSM and Reliaprep Large Volume HT gDNA Kit allows automated recovery of pure gDNA from up to 32 samples.

1 - Compact Instrument:
      - Freedom EVO 100 on support table
      - 120 cm (w) x 110 cm (d) x 190 cm (h)
2 - Promega HSM 2.0 (heater, shaker, magnet) integration
3 - Liquid system for fast bulk reagent dispensing
4 - Aspiration system for fast removal of supernatant

Freedom EVO® HSM Workstation

Intelligent one tube extraction – scalable for each individual sample

  • Any sample volume – from 1 to 10 ml – can be processed in a single run, using the same method
  • Single tube extraction with the ReliaPrep HSM device – combining heating, shaking and magnetic separation – reduces waste and minimizes the risk of cross contamination

Highly pure gDNA for all your downstream needs

  • From whole blood, buffy coat, buccal wash and saliva
  • Similar yields from fresh and frozen samples
  • High molecular weight DNA, ideally suited to applications requiring longer fragments, such as NGS
  • High purity specifications: A260/280 = <1.7, A260/230 = 1.8-2.2

Intuitive set-up with interactive touchscreen

  • Pre-installed protocols allow you to begin processing your samples within days
  • Easy, guided set-up minimizes training needs for laboratory staff
  • Customizable reports generated for each purification run

Tecan Journal Articles

The yield and quality of the DNA extracted has been significantly improved, which is an unexpected but very welcome benefit.

Manual DNA extraction of up to 32 large volume samples could take the entire day; with the Freedom EVO HSM it is completed in about four hours.
