96 Well Synergy™ Plant DNA Extraction Kit
Our comprehensive 96 Well Synergy™ Plant DNA Extraction Kit includes pre-filled Homogenization Plates for mechanically
disrupting up to 192 samples using a high velocity plate homogenizer, along with the purification plates and reagents for isolating contaminant-free plant DNA.
Extractions performed on various sample types (e.g., Arabidopsis, corn, sorghum, wheat, etc.) have consistently yielded high concentrations of high quality DNA in a
time- and a cost-efficient manner without the use of hazardous chloroform
The Effect of Bead Beating on RNA Integrity
Ribonucleic acids (RNA) isolated from active cells provide a snapshot of a cell’s status and physiology.
Previous work at OPS Diagnostics demonstrated that bead beating, a very widely used method for sample disruption, can significantly shear DNA during the homogenization process.
In order to directly assess the impact of different grinding matrices on RNA quality, purified RNA was homogenized with a range of different bead types and then analyzed...(More)
Isolation of Soil Microbiome using Modified Synergy™ Protocol
Isolating nucleic acids from soil microbiomes presents a host of unique challenges, including but not limited to humic acids, which in themselves are unique.
The scientist at OPS Diagnostics have modified the chemistry of Synergy™, orginally designed for rapid isolation of DNA for standard PCR assays,
to separate humic acids from DNA...(More)

Sample Homogenization Considerations for NextGen Sequencing
The latest in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) now allows for direct sequencing of individual DNA molecules or clonally amplified DNA.
The primary systems used in NGS, manufactured by Pacific Biosciences and Illumina®, can generate gigabases to terabases of data per run (compared to megabases for the previous generation) by directly measuring bases incorporated during DNA polymerization... (More)
