Rapid, High Throughput Extraction and Purification of Genomic DNA from Whole Blood Using the Akonni TruTip® Extraction System on the Hamilton Microlab® STAR Liquid Handling System
Bookmark and Share


Akonni Biosystems has developed the simple and effective ultra-rapid TruTip® automated extraction method designed to isolate genomic DNA from low volumes of whole blood for downstream genetic testing including any type of PCR, sequencing and microarray detection. The tip-based extraction technology is paired with the advanced, proven and reliable Hamilton Microlab STAR liquid handling system for high throughput sample processing. Comparable yields of high-quality genomic DNA were extracted using the TruTip method when compared directly to industry leaders. Reproducibility studies demonstrated high precision with low standard deviations and high quality.
