SKD100 is developed for multistep nucleic acid extraction procedures to provide DNA lysates of highest quality. The proprietary self-sealing filter material allows a stepwise release and separation of DNA from mixed specimens. The novel spin-column system is ideally suitable for DNA extraction procedures involving differential lysis of forensic samples such as epithelium or blood vs. sperms.
Due to high yield of DNA, the chance of a successful DNA-profile by downstream analysis is significantly increased. Thereby, simple handling allows time savings and higher throughput in a manual process to allow reliable improvement of crime solution rates and is qualified to speed up analysis of backlogged rape kits.
- Quick: It will take only 2 hours to have the pure DNA from sperm for downstream PCR process
- Easy: Stepwise cell disruption and separation of cell lysate in the same device without extra pipetting steps, thus also reducing the washing process and reduce the loss of DNA
- No cross-contamination: closed system that minimises the risk of cross-contaminations and sample transposition
- Compatible to any consecutive DNA isolation, both manual and automated
