SNP Genotyping of Field Corn Samples with LGC Genomics Chemistry on the Nexar® System
Application Note

Douglas Scientific

A recent study demonstrated that the Nexar® System can be successfully used to produce repeatable and easily scored SNP genotyping results with crude preps from field corn using either KASP or probe-based SNP genotyping assays in miniaturized reaction volumes. This platform also provides significant cost savings in the form of reduced PCR reaction volumes.

Genotyping of Human Reference DNA Samples with Pharmacologically Important Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms using KASP™ Genotyping Chemistry on the Nexar® System
Application Note

Douglas Scientific

Five pharmacologically important SNPs were analyzed with a miniaturized PCR-based SNP genotyping method using KASP™ genotyping reagents and the Douglas Scientific® Nexar®. The Nexar along with Array Tape® significantly reduces reaction volumes, hands-on effort and over-all cost of SNP genotyping, leading to a reliable and economical alternative to traditional PCR-based SNP genotyping techniques.

Rapid point of use DNAble® assay for citrus greening disease (Candidatus Liberibacter spp.) using the Douglas Scientific® AmpliFire®
Application Note

Douglas Scientific

In this experiment, a crude insect preparation and a DNAble assay were used to demonstrate that the AmpliFire instrument accurately detects the presence of HLB-causing bacteria consistent with a real-time PCR system. The AmpliFire offers greater portability than real-time PCR instrumentation, and is a powerful tool for point of use applications such as management of citrus greening disease.

Microbial Detection and Quantification Using the IntelliQube® from Douglas Scientific®
Application Note

Douglas Scientific

Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) is a powerful tool for the quantification of microorganisms and are used in many fields. In this study commercially available microbial NAT kits were successfully miniaturized from 20 µL to 1.6 µL reaction volumes using the IntelliQube. The IntelliQube delivers efficient and economical high throughput sample processing for microbial qPCR applications.
