The Arcis Prep Kit, from Cole-Parmer, allows rapid extraction of either DNA or RNA in three minutes with high yields. This process is ideal for any molecular biologist who wants to reduce the time in which DNA and RNA samples can be obtained.
Existing sample preparation kits currently require laborious washing, heating, and centrifugation steps that typically take 40 to 90 minutes to extract DNA or RNA from a sample. The Arcis DNA Prep Kit requires two simple steps that are completed in three minutes, to provide high-quality, PCR-ready templates with no need for additional laboratory equipment such as centrifuges or hot blocks. The Arcis Prep Kit is ideal for applications such as PCR, qPCR, isothermal amplification (LAMP), sequencing, genetic profiling (electrophoresis) and forensic studies. The extraction system can also be easily integrated into automated sample processing or liquid handling systems.
The Arcis DNA Prep Kit, if used for extractions from fluids like blood, requires as little as 30 µL of sample as a starting material. The kit is also scalable in accordance with stated ratios in the prep kit manual and unlike other products, the prep kit can extract both DNA and RNA. This dual purpose removes the need for separate DNA and RNA extraction kits and, combined with the unrivalled three-minute sample processing time, saves time and money for labs of all sizes.
