Purification of Genomic DNA from Saliva Using Oragene® Discover Collection Kits and the Akonni TruTip® Extraction System on the Hamilton Microlab® STAR Liquid Handling Workstation
Application Note Jan 22, 2013
Akonni Biosystems has developed the simple and efficient TruTip automated extraction solution designed to isolate genomic DNA from Oragene DNA saliva collection kits in preparation for downstream genetic testing such as amplification, sequencing and microarray detection, currently for research use only (RUO). The tip-based extraction technology is paired with the advanced, proven and reliable Hamilton Microlab STAR liquid handling workstation for high throughput sample processing. High-quality genomic DNA was extracted using the TruTip method with comparable yields to industry leaders. Reproducibility studies demonstrated high precision with low standard deviations and no cross-contamination.
