Vital for our research!
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area: DNA dispense and plating out 1536 plates

"We get reproducible results with plating out DNA samples. For us this machine is vital for our research, because we dispense DNA from 96 well plates to 384 well plates to 1536 well plates. And of the high throughput of our projects it is a needed machine. Although it is not so easy to use, because of all the different settings you can use, you are prone to make an error. The after sales care is fantastic and always there if you need them. For use the machine is great value for money."

The Genespin™ platform completes the nucleic acid extraction range has been engineered to fulfill the growing demands for the highest throughputs.

 

Speed is of the essence when it comes to DNA analysis of plant breeding populations; whole generations must be analysed for the presence or absence of desired biomarkers in time to enable the correct plants to be used in the next generation of breeding. This creates a demand for high-throughput DNA extraction from plant tissues, with resultant purified DNA of a suitable quality for PCR-based applications. The Genespin™ enables semi-automated but high throughput DNA extractions from plant tissues, and utilises the proprietary Kleargene™ extraction chemistry.

 

The Kleargene spin plates utilise a glass fibre solid support inserted into a microtitre plate, in 96- and 384-well formats. To guarantee a throughput of more than 5000 extractions per day, the Genespin has been optimised to load the buffers into the spin columns without any cross-contamination. Kleargene kits are available in both 96-well and 384-well formats and are suitable for extraction of between 100ng and 5 µg DNA from plant material. In conjunction with our SNPline™, the Genespin platform provides DNA of a quality that is sufficient for downstream applications including PCR SNP genotyping including KASP, andarray technologies.

 

Features:

  • Enables high throughput DNA extraction: 8 x 96 plates/ hour. - 96 format: up to 5,500 samples per day. - 384 format: up to 20,000 samples per day
  • Minimise consumable costs: in-built tip wash station ensures that only one set of tips is required per run
  • Replicator function: the Genespin instrument can be used to prepare DNA dilution plates (96- and 384-well) and to stamp DNA into PCR plates
  • Efficient use of laboratory space. - Small format: 170 cm x 68.5 cm x 65 cm
  • Compatible with existing SNPline installations
