  • We are an innovative solution provider for DNA/RNA/Protein purification

    Established in 2004, Taiwan Advanced Nanotech Inc (TANBead) is an innovative solution provider for nucleic acid extraction. With expertise in automation, buffer optimization and modification of magnetic beads, we focus on offering our users convenient and practical solutions for DNA/RNA/Protein purifications to advance research, life science and molecular diagnostics.
  • Efficient nucleic acid extraction is a prerequisite for accurate molecular diagnostics

    Efficient “nucleic acid extraction” is a prerequisite for accurate “molecular diagnostics”. Accuracy of molecular diagnostics depends on nucleic acid extraction efficiency and diagnostic assay sensitivity. Only when we can achieve very high efficient nucleic acid extraction can we ensure and secure the accuracy of molecular diagnostics.
  • We offer fully automated extraction platforms

    We offers a wide range of products based on fully automated extraction platform for magnetic bead. Magnetic beads emerge as an useful media in automations, since magnetic bead separation is a quick and efficient process that can circumvent the need for filtration, centrifugation and separation techniques. Our competence in producing uniform size Super-Paramagnetic Iron Oxide (SPIO) enables us to develop products for molecular biology applications.
