Application Note: Automated Extraction of High Molecular Weight DNA From High-Volume Blood Samples
9 October 2018

Due to the steadily growing requirements placed on the samples to be processed, in academic environments as well as in the industry, automation solutions are taking on an ever increasing importance. Purification of genomic DNA (gDNA) is the starting point for a large number of subsequent processes where the quantity and purity of the isolated DNA is important. Conventional extraction methods use expensive reagents and are based on handling of small sample quantities as well as on the resulting purification procedures, which are repeated multiple times. In addition, this increases the risk of losing valuable sample material.
