Optimizing Process Efficiency and Sample Extraction
Magnetic bead–based separation techniques have been a cornerstone for RNA, DNA and cell extraction. The Thermo Scientific™ KingFisher™ instrument line, paired with various magnetic particle–based kits, utilizes these techniques to help achieve clean and high-quality extraction with consistent results. Most recently, these instruments have proven effective at extracting SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA from nasopharyngeal swabs in viral transport media and saliva samples with extremely high throughput during the recent global crisis of SARS-CoV-2.
