MicroGEM’s PDQeX Nucleic Acid Extractor is the next generation of thermocyclers. It uses powerful enzyme-driven extraction reagents with an innovative extractor cartridge and purification matrix. Just add heat and the closed-tube system produces DNA extracts in significantly less time (minutes rather than hours) than other extraction methods.
– PDQeX Extraction Reagents consist of a cocktail of thermophilic proteinase and mesophilic cell wall degrading enzymes that systematically lyse cells, destroy nucleases, digest proteins and release nucleic acids
– PDQeX Extractor Cartridges, made from thermo-responsive polymers, pump extracted DNA through the purification medium while removing inhibitors
– PDQeX Temperature-Controlled Extraction activates the proteinase and forces the extract through a heat-burstable valve and proprietary purification matrix, removing cell debris and inhibitors.
