DNA Extraction Systems

Consistently and cost-effectively extract high quality DNA and RNA with oKtopure™—LGC’s bead-based automated nucleic acid extraction system.

LGC Biosearch Technologies’ automated nucleic acid extraction system—the oKtopure™—offers standardised, high-throughput extraction, delivering high-quality DNA and RNA suitable for downstream applications such as PCR/RT-PCR, sequencing, microarrays and SNP genotyping.  The oKtopure combines high-throughput automation with the proprietary sbeadex™ magnetic bead-based extraction chemistry for high-quality, high-yield DNA and RNA extraction.

Features and benefits of the oKtopure nucleic acid extraction system

  • Automated nucleic acid extraction—oKtopure processes 8 x 96-well microtitre plates in parallel
  • Saves teams up to 50% on consumables by using the oKtopure tip wash station
  • Compatible with shallow and deep well plates through a variable Z-position dispensing head
  • Utilises sbeadex superparamagnetic particles, which allow efficient and high quality purification of small and large DNA fragments as well as RNA from several sample materials.
