    Nucleic Acid Purification – Pure and Simple™

    The Ionic™ Purification System isolates pure, native, nucleic acid without the use of harsh lysis steps or chaotropic salts.

  • No beads, columns, or surface binding

    Simplified Charge-based DNA Extraction

    Isotachophoresis (ITP) separates and concentrates charged molecules in solution solely based on their electrophoretic mobility.

Pure, Native, Nucleic Acid
Biological samples are gently lysed without the use of chaotropic salts. Nucleic acids are not dehydrated or denatured.
Higher Amplifiable Yields
Extract up to 50% more nucleic acid from cultured cells. Achieve yields of 3.5x or more for FFPE samples versus column-based methods.
No Beads, Columns, or Surface-binding
Nucleic acids are purified solely based on electrophoretic mobility. Elimination of binding, washing, and stripping reduces sample loss and contamination.
No Risk Downstream
Purification is not biased toward nucleic acids of a certain length or GC content.
Superior Workflow for FFPE
Purification of nucleic acids from FFPE scrolls or slides requires less than 3 minutes of hands-on time per sample (lysis included). No chemical deparaffinization is required.
Automated Nucleic Acid Purification
Nucleic acids are automatically separated and concentrated from sample lysate on the Purigen system in 60 minutes.

The application of ITP to purify and quantify nucleic acids from complex biological samples was pioneered by Purigen co-founder and Stanford University Professor Juan G. Santiago. The Ionic Purification System is compatible with a range of samples including cells and FFPE.
