Product and Applications
Purigen’s automated DNA/RNA extraction, quantitation, and enrichment platform rapidly processes multiple samples simultaneously and provides inline quantitation at 100x greater sensitivity than existing nucleic acid quantitation systems. The system will deliver qPCR, microarray, or NGS prep-ready DNA or RNA in 15-60 minutes (depending on sample type and volume) using disposable plastic chips. Key applications kits will include preparation of DNA and/or RNA from cells, FFPE and fresh tissues, whole blood or plasma, buccal swabs or other sources.
Purigen’s system is not yet commercially available, but we have opened an early access program. If you are interested in participating, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Purigen co-founder and Stanford Professor Juan Santiago pioneered the underlying isotachophoresis (ITP) technology used in Purigen’s sample preparation platform. Professor Santiago’s Stanford Microfluidics Laboratory has published over 30 peer-reviewed publications on ITP and its application to nucleic acid preparation.
