Nucleic acid extraction using SPRI (solid-phase reversible immobilization) magnetic beads are one of the most common and painstaking processes done by modern molecular biology labs.
Anytime a PCR product is used in sensitive downstream processes like gene assembly or next-generation sequencing (NGS), labs must go through multiple, time- and labor-intensive bead washing steps. The Opentrons Nucleic Acid Extraction Workstation is designed to automate your bead cleanups for you.
This workstation includes everything you need to start automating SPRI bead cleanups in your lab: the robot with magnetic module, correct labware, beads from Omega Bio-tek, and a validated protocol free to customize and download.
This workflow can be used for the following applications:
- PCR Product Purification
- NGS Library Clean-up
- Any other bead-based size selection
