This 15-minute webinar provides an overview of MicroGEM’s temperature-driven approach to DNA and RNA extractions where speed, sample size, yield, and simplified workflow are important. Single-tube extractions produce high-quality nucleic acids in minutes, not hours, without the overuse of plastic or harsh chemicals. Reduced handling means fewer opportunities for contamination, all at an affordable cost.
Gene therapy, molecular biology, pharmacology, forensics, environmental sciences, and plant pathology are just a few fields where MicroGEM is helping scientists move quickly to analysis, produce faster results, and make timely decisions about the implications of their studies.
Temperature-driven, single-tube extractions of total RNA from mammalian cells, tissues, insects, bacteria and virus
This powerful, broad-specificity approach is ideal for gene expression from a very small number of cells, such as exosomes or single cells, without the need for harsh chemicals or further purification.
MicroGEM’s prepGEM Universal is a widely-used, adaptable reagent kit suitable for DNA extractions from life science samples. Because the entire extraction is done in a single-tube with no washes or additional steps, there is no loss of DNA, enabling extractions from even a single cell.
