Akonni Biosystems Announces New Family of TruTip®Extraction Products for Hamilton Robotics Microlab® STAR Line of Liquid Handling Workstations


9/12/2012 10:28:10 AM

FREDERICK, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Akonni Biosystems today announced the availability of a new family of “smart tip” extraction products for rapidly purifying human genomic deoxyribonucleic acid (gDNA) on the Hamilton Microlab® STAR line of robotic liquid handling workstations. Starting from fresh or frozen blood, buffy coat, and soon tissue or cells, these new TruTip kits extract superior quality gDNA simultaneously from eight to 96 samples in just 57 minutes. The system does not require a magnetic head, vacuum manifold, centrifuge, or other space-consuming or expensive capital equipment. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) inhibition due to bead carryover is also eliminated since there are no magnetic beads required, as are errors due to clogging typically caused by vacuum manifolds.
