Matrical Bioscience is offering a plate adapter for use with the Sonicman automated standalone instrument for high-throughput sonication.
This adapter is placed on the tube-plate chilling block to allow any SBS/ANSI formatted microplate to be used with the Sonicman.
The Sonicman ultrasonic device has been proven to effectively shear in parallel 96 DNA or chromatin samples with low CVs for sample prep to sizes as low as 100 base pairs.
The newest version of this machine fragments DNA in isothermal conditions via an online chiller block.
This allows for the low-base peak fragments required for next-generation sequencing platforms, including Illumina and Life Technologies.
The Sonicman is also useful for applications such as: re-suspension of compounds initially or after freeze/thaw; extraction of target proteins, DNA/RNA and enzymes using cell lysis without using harsh chemicals; and mixing low-volume assays.
