Efficient purification of genomic DNA
Automated DNA purification provides high levels of reliability and standardization and helps to eliminate variation caused by handling errors. The EZ1 Advanced or the EZ1 Advanced XL in combination with the EZ1 DSP DNA Blood Kit enables efficient purification of genomic DNA from human whole blood. The amount of DNA purified depends on the white blood cell content (WBC) of each blood sample. The EZ1 DSP DNA Blood system provides high relative DNA yields independent of the donor’s WBC.
High-quality DNA for sensitive and specific analyses
Sensitive downstream applications demand the use of highly pure DNA for reliable results. DNA purified using the EZ1 DSP DNA Blood system is ready for immediate use in a broad range of sensitive diagnostic assays, such as real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using CE-IVD-marked artus PCR Kits.
Unparalleled removal of inhibitors
Since PCR consists of multiple rounds of enzymatic reactions, it is more sensitive to impurities than single-step enzyme-catalyzed reactions. DNA purified using the EZ1 DSP DNA Blood system performs well in PCR even when large amounts of eluate are used, demonstrating the high purity of the DNA (see figure “ Eluate volume and PCR performance”).
