DNA/RNA Extraction

Improve the consistency and robustness of nucleic acid extraction and cleanup with Biomek Genomic Workstations, when compared to manual processing. Automate magnetic-bead based extraction and cleanups to improve the quality of samples going into downstream NGS, microarray, and qPCR workflows. 

Enable higher throughput when extracting from blood, cells, FFPE, tissue or other sample types. Combine Biomek Genomic Workstations and Beckman Genomic Reagents for a complete solution for nucleic acid isolation and cleanup.  

Increasing efficiency, and reducing hands-on time, Biomek Genomics Workstations provide flexibility to maximize scheduling your day. Demonstrated methods can be run start to finish with full walk away capability, and include optional start and stop points based on the kit vendor’s recommendations. 

Built using the Biomek 4000, i5 and i7 liquid handlers, Biomek Genomic Workstations offer scalable automation solutions that can include all steps involved from extraction through library construction, for example. Pre-defined configurations for the i-Series include capability for on-deck incubation, magnetic-bead separation, and shaking as well as optional enclosures and on-deck thermocycling.
