    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 highly efficient nucleic acid extraction, we can ensure the accuracy of molecular diagnostics.

    We offer fully automated extraction platforms

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