MolGen Automation: Extraction Systems For Every Laboratory
Every day, the demand for more efficient laboratory processes and high-throughput workflows increases. MolGen is perfectly positioned as a global solutions provider of hardware, reagents, consumables, software and service for human and animal diagnostics, the agriculture and biotech industries, with its high-tech automated extraction systems, reagents and consumables directed at professional laboratories and partners of all sizes.
Genetic research and diagnostics
In molecular biology, genomic material such as DNA or RNA is essential in research and diagnostics. For example, in the agricultural field, it is crucial to test genetic material is crucial in seed quality control and crop trait development. To assess quality, plant tissues are being tested on many different levels, such as population genetics, disease resistance, trait genetics, plant physiology, and improvement of yield. Animal DNA is tested for disease control, antibiotic resistance, animal physiology research and hereditary trait testing. Genomic research is also important in the human diagnostics field. By studying nucleic acids, researchers can discover genetic diseases, detect harmful pathogens, and create novel therapies.
MolGen DNA/RNA Extraction automation
To perform genetic research, the DNA or RNA requires extraction and purification from the sample material. The sample material can differ widely from tissue, blood, saliva, plant leaves or soil, but the extraction process remains the same. In the past, DNA / RNA extraction was a tedious and cost- and time-heavy process. However, rapid innovation and automation of laboratory workflows by MolGen ensures that extraction becomes fast and optimised. Automating the extraction workflow using MolGen automated systems is especially useful for high-throughput laboratories as it reduces human error and increases traceability and standardisation. Besides, automating relieves lab personnel from repetitive tasks, and allows them to work on more experiments in parallel. Using automation continuously provides high DNA / RNA yields by using innovative techniques. These techniques also ensure that the use of harmful chemicals has been drastically reduced.
MolGen PurePrep Line
MolGen offers a variety of extraction hardware and depending on your throughput (high or low) and volume you can choose the best suitable PurePrep system from our line to serve your needs. The PurePrep extraction systems are open and flexible systems, which range from low-throughput, with the PurePrep Mini with up to 16 samples per run, to high-throughput, with the PurePrep 96 with 96 samples per run. For up to 24 and 32 samples throughput, MolGen offers the PurePrep 24, PurePrep 24D and PurePrep 32.
By applying magnetic-based extraction methods, the easy-to-use process is optimised for a fast and efficient extraction, with the standard protocol being around 40 minutes. Additionally, MolGen offers the extraction systems PurePrep 24 and PurePrep 24D, which are optimised to process high-volume samples of up to 10 ml, such as blood samples.
These systems all have an easy-to-use interface and are user-friendly with a small footprint. All PurePrep systems are completely open, and all parameters can be changed for complete optimisation. Currently, there are already over 250 PurePrep 96 systems running worldwide. Plastic consumables are available for purchase from MolGen as well.
The range of systems MolGen currently has available:
Along with automated extraction systems, MolGen has several specialised extraction kits available, such as the Pathogens, Seed, Leaf, and Animal kits. These kits can be optimised for the specific sample type and application to guarantee high-quality yields.
In times of shortage, MolGen proved to be a reliable supplier of systems, chemicals, and consumables, due to their large stock availability, close relations with the manufacturer or even own production of systems, chemicals and consumables. To assist in the growing demand for high-quality genomic DNA and RNA extraction from a variety of samples, MolGen has many automated extraction systems available, with more systems joining the lineup soon. As MolGen keeps innovating, more additions to the PurePrep Extraction line are expected, including all-in-one systems which combine extraction with PCR set-up in one run.
