Purigen Biosystems' transformative Ionic Purification System 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. The Ionic® Purification System is compatible with a range of samples including cells and FFPE.
Purigen is proudly affliated with StartX Med, a Stanford-University-affliated nonprofit technology accelerator, and the California Life Sciences Institute’s (CLSI) FAST Advisory Program.
Klint Rose, Ph.D., CSO and Co-Founder of Purigen Biosystems describes the evolution of the isotachophoresis technology inside the Ionic® Purification System which is revolutionizing DNA and RNA extraction for cancer and genomics research.
