Extracting Nucleic Acid in the Molecular Biology Laboratory
Molecular detection requires the extraction of nucleic acids from many different sample types. The quality of the extracted nucleic acids have a strong impact on the quality of the test results obtained. Inhibitors of the amplification reaction present in the sample must be completely removed prior to amplification. Therefore, the performance of the extraction step is key to successful molecular detection.
bioMérieux has developed two solutions to increase the performance and productivity of nucleic acid extraction and meet the different needs for automated solutions:
- NucliSENS® easyMAG® is a totally automated system for nucleic acid extraction/purification.
- NucliSENS® miniMAG® is a semi-automated solution.
