sbeadex™ livestock kit – One kit. Any sample type.
Featured Product Oct 03, 2017
Livestock samples for genetic analysis are often very heterogeneous and complex. Blood, hair, semen, ear punches, saliva and swabs are all commonly used for DNA extraction and analysis of a range of animal species.
LGC is an international supplier of both off-the-shelf and tailor-made kits for manual and automated high-throughput DNA extractions. The sbeadex™ livestock kit has been developed for any livestock sample type, regardless of animal species or automated platform.
sbeadex is a magnetic bead-based DNA extraction chemistry that yields high quality DNA. This is achieved through a novel two-step binding mechanism via an adapter which allows for more specific binding to nucleic acids. Final washes with water deliver nucleic acid in high yield, purity and quality that is suitable for all downstream applications like NGS, genotyping and chip technologies. When coupled with our high-throughput automated extraction platform, the oKtopure™, 3000-4000 samples can be processed per day.
The sbeadex livestock kit conveniently supplies all the buffers ready for use. No organic solvents or chaotrophic salts are in the final wash buffers. Contact an LGC representative today and see how we can support your DNA extraction projects.
