Application Note: Accelerating Medical Research with Fully Automated, Large Volume DNA Extractions
14 April 2013

DNA extraction from blood samples is a critical step in several medical research processes and has to meet the criteria of speed, reproducibility, high yield, and cross-contamination avoidance. Nucleic acid extraction involves multiple steps, which can make manual performance of this task laborious and error-prone. This application note presents an automated procedure using the JANUS® Automated Workstation integrated with chemagic Magnetic Separation Module I (chemagic MSM I) for large volume DNA extraction from blood samples.
