Welcome GEN Readers

Thank you for your interest in MicroGEM’s temperature-controlled enzymatic approach to sample preparation and nucleic acid extractions.



Please enjoy this convenient download of our most recent publication, Rapid Extraction of DNA Suitable for NGS Workflows from Bacterial Cultures Using the PDQeX, featured in BioTechniques (February, 2019).

This study compared a conventional column purification method with MicroGEM’s PDQeX Nucleic Acid Extractor for purifying DNA for whole genome sequencing. Based on six bacterial suspensions, the PDQeX performed much more rapidly – in under 30 minutes – while producing high-quality extractions.


    We’ve set the standard for DNA and RNA extraction where speed, sample size, yield and hands-free automation are important. Our thermostable proteinase functions at temperatures perfect for nucleic acid extraction – inactive at low temperatures, turning on at 75°C and irreversibly denaturing at 95°C.

    No detergents. No denaturants. No complex steps. Only heat.
    That’s temperature-controlled nucleic acid extraction done effortlessly.
