The innuPREP Swab DNA Kit-IPC16 has been specially developed for automated extraction of genomic DNA from buccal swabs. Using the InnuPure® C16 in conjunction with pre-filled, sealed Reagent Strips/Plates is a highly efficient method for isolating high-quality genomic DNA. In addition the kit also contains swabs for easy sampling. Lysis is very fast and highly efficient, after which a Prefilter is used for extracting virtually all of the lysate from the swab and transferring it to the Reagent Plastic. The gDNA is then bound to magnetic particles in a subsequent separation step—a process that, like all wash steps and the final elution, are fully automated on the InnuPure® C16. The piercing feature of the InnuPure® C16 makes this process extremely easy to handle, while eliminating the risk of contamination.
