Sample preparation for molecular and non-molecular workflows

Sample preparation for molecular and non-molecular workflows

Prepare even the most challenging food samples with options to pool, clean, purify, concentrate and automate your sample preparation for molecular detection and other techniques.

Nucleic acid extraction systems for food samples

Applied Biosystems™ PrepSEQ™ Rapid Spin Sample Preparation Kits are designed for manual sample preparation upfront of the Applied Biosystems™ MicroSEQ™, Applied Biosystems™ RapidFinder™ STEC and Applied Biosystems™ TaqMan™ assays. They are suitable for use with other PCR kits and offer:

  • Fast, efficient sample preparation for PCR-based assays
  • Optimal performance on a wide range of sample types
  • A simple protocol which reduces time-to-results
  • A microcentrifuge-based system — no additional equipment is required
  • An ideal solution for low to medium sample throughput

Carry out automated total nucleic acid (DNA and/or RNA) purification and concentration of selected targets from a broad range of pre-enriched food and environmental samples with the Thermo Scientific™ KingFisher™ Flex Purification System with 96 Deep-well Head.  Using revolutionary magnetic particle separation technology, this system provides excellent reproducibility and quality in demanding high throughput workflows.

The KingFisher Flex with 96 Deep-well Head has been optimized for pathogen detection, GMO and Species Identification, and SARS-CoV-2 detection workflows.

Immunomagnetic separation (IMS) and paramagnetic preparation for food samples

Selectively capture and concentrate target organisms from enriched samples by immunomagnetic separation (IMS) technology. After washing, the bead bound target is released for use in downstream applications. Dynabeads™ magnetic beads for food safety testing have been designed for both manual and automated separation using the Thermo Scientific™ KingFisher™ mL Food Protection Purification System.

Selectively bind and concentrate target organisms from many complex matrices found in food, animal feed, ingredients and environmental samples with the Applied Biosystems™ Pathatrix™ system.
