Purigen Biosystems’ transformative platform provides a hands-free solution for extracting, enriching and quantifying DNA and RNA from biological samples. Our proprietary approach uses isotachophoresis (ITP), an electric-field driven technique for purifying, focusing, and/or separating species. The application of ITP to purify and quantify nucleic acids from complex biological samples was pioneered by Purigen co-founder, Stanford Professor Juan G. Santiago. Purigen’s system is compatible with a range of samples including: mammalian cells, FFPE and FNA tissue biopsies, plasma, blood, and buccal swabs.
Purigen is proudly affiliated with StartX Med, a Stanford-University-affiliated nonprofit technology accelerator, and the California Life Sciences Institute’s (CLSI) FAST Advisory Program.
