Genevac has recently installed a miVac DNA concentrator at the Centre for Developmental and Biomedical Genetics at the University of Sheffield, UK
Founded in 1997, the Centre for Developmental and Biomedical Genetics (CDBG) at the University of Sheffield is a leading cross-disciplinary research centre specialising in the developmental and neuro-degenerative diseases of humankind.
The CDBG broadly encompasses research into diseases such as motor neurone disease, Parkinson's disease, deafness and multiple sclerosis.
Alexander Soloviev of the Department of Biomedical Science at the CDBG commented "There is a wide spectrum of molecular, biochemical, cellular and immunohistochemical approaches utilised in our laboratory".
"Our work with nucleic acids is carried out on a daily basis so the new miVac DNA concentrator will both aid laboratory productivity and ensure samples are prepared safely".
The miVac DNA concentrator is designed to prepare DNA samples efficiently and safely.
The compact system offers digital control of concentrator temperature and short concentration times, reducing the risk of heat damage to your samples.
Unlike centrifugal filters, the miVac DNA concentrates effortlessly and returns 100% of your samples every time, and with no consumable costs.
Benchmarked to provide best-of-class performance in all aspects the miVac DNA provides scientists everything they need to safely and swiftly concentrate or dry their samples in a compact easy-to-use package.
The revolutionary design has no motor and is therefore very quiet running.
Simple 'select and set' single control knob control enables even new users to obtain excellent results first time and every time.
To facilitate full experimental flexibility the miVac DNA also allows advanced users access to special operational modes to speed up concentration of water or water/alcohol mixtures.
