New extraction kit for Oragene•DNA available from Beckman Coulter


Beckman Coulter Genomics has developed a new version of their DNAdvance System specifically for use with DNA Genotek’s Oragene samples. DNAdvance SP, from Beckman Coulter Genomics, is an extraction kit for the isolation and purification of DNA from saliva samples collected with Oragene self-collection Kits. The high throughput genomic DNA (gDNA) isolation reagent system enables the purification of high quality DNA from saliva samples, making it ideal for genotyping applications (SNP, fragment analysis), sequencing and qPCR. The system provides researchers and laboratories with an optimized and robust solution for DNA extraction and purification from saliva collected with Oragene kits.

Bassam El-Fahmawi, product manager, strategic marketing with Beckman Coulter Genomics stated: 

“We chose to develop DNAdvance SP for Oragene samples because more and more of our customers are using this proven, non-invasive collection method. Customers will see the benefits of our collaboration in the consistent, high quality results delivered by the system.”

Cindy Maccullough, vice president marketing at DNA Genotek commented:

“The development of the DNAdvance SP System is a clear sign of the growing interest in non-invasive DNA sample collection in the scientific community. There is an increasing demand for automated extractions from our customer base, and the DNAdvance SP System provides a streamlined extraction process that delivers predictable, quality yields for Oragene•DNA.”

The DNAdvance SP product is available from Beckman Coulter Genomics. For more information, you can contact Beckman Coulter here.
