The QuickGene series of instruments and kits from Alpha Laboratories provides a novel, innovate method for DNA and RNA extraction from a vast number of sample types, without the need for strong centrifugation steps.
The range of QuickGene kits enables extraction of DNA and RNA from samples up to 2mL from a plethora of different sources including viruses, bacteria, cultured cells, whole blood, animal and plant tissue.
The kits pass samples through a thin hydrophobic membrane, allowing hydrophilic molecules to pass through whilst keeping hydrophobic molecules, such as nucleic acids, retained in the membrane for elution and collection. The porous membranes are just 100μm thick, 10% of the size of traditional 1000μm thick glass fibre membranes.
Using compressed air helps to protect nucleic acids, which in turn provides longer, more complete strands, whilst retaining impeccable sample purity and yield.
The QuickGene range encompasses two instruments for semi-automation, two instruments for full automation and an adapter to allow seamless change between the extensive number of kits.
