It is well known that high quality isolated genomic DNA is required for sophisticated downstream applications in fields such as forensics, bio-medical, food, and environmental research and monitoring has been a limiting and time-consuming factor. The higher throughput requirements for high quality DNA samples have led to the development of new technologies that improve both DNA isolation and ease of use. Magnetic bead-based kits involving solid phase reversible immobilization (SPRI) technology provide a reliable, efficient means for isolation of quality DNA. Isolation of DNA using micro magnetic beads requires a specific interaction with the ligand (silica, polystyrene, polyvinyl alcohols, primary or secondary antibody, streptavidin, and protein A or G etc) on the bead surface.
Aurora Biomed has combined its expertise in automated liquid handling with Invitek’s InviMag Forensic Kit/KF96 to offer an automated, and fully validated application for forensic quality DNA isolation. The results are presented in this poster.
