prepGEM Universal produces outstanding results for single cell or low volume samples and effortlessly extracts DNA from a wide variety of tissue samples:

insect
mouse and rat tail tips
fish fins
ear tags
touch

fat
muscle
dispersed tissue
tape lifts
fingernail

Depending on your laboratory equipment and end-use application, MicroGEM offers two options:


  • MicroGEM's prepGEM Universal Kit provides users with a single tube solution for extracting DNA from a variety of human samples, including liquids, buccal swabs, and blood.

    1. Reagents Only

    To use your lab’s existing thermocycler or liquid handler, choose prepGEM Universal, optimized to extract DNA from solid tissue and dispersed cell culture. Hands-free, single-tube, temperature-controlled processing makes it possible to extract DNA in very small volumes and to protect the integrity of the sample.

    For cell culture, the kit gives linear results from 200,000 cells down to 1 single cell. It can be scaled down to sub-µl volumes making it perfect for single-cell work.

    This kit produces single-stranded DNA suitable for STR, PCR, qPCR, and whole genome amplification.

  • The PDQeX Nucleic Acid Extractor simplifies molecular biology workflows.

    2. MicroGEM’s Automated Solution

    MicroGEM’s PDQeX Nucleic Acid Extractor provides greater automation and generates purified double-stranded DNA making it suitable for NGS (Next Gen Sequencing) and any other method that requires double-stranded DNA.

    Because the PDQeX works better with larger volumes of reagents (100 µl), for small samples or single cells, use the prepGEM Universal reagent kit.

    This kit produces double-stranded DNA suitable for STR, PCR, and qPCR, and is ideal for high throughput screening.
