Background: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that afflicts over 70,000 people worldwide. It is characterized by viscous mucus that accumulates in the lungs creating challenges for microbiology labs processing sputa toisolates lower growing fungal species. Our laboratory attempted to liquefy and homogenize mucoid sputum samples by exposure to Adaptive Focused Acoustics™ (AFA) in order to increase recovery of fungal pathogens.
Woburn, MA – September 1st, 2015 – truXTRAC is a comprehensive novel solution for clinical-grade DNA extraction from Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) tissues utilizing Covaris Adaptive Focused Acoustics® (AFA™) technology. The unique focused, short-wavelength acoustic field generated by AFA enables rapid, active paraffin removal and rehydration of FFPE tissue samples in aqueous buffer, thus enabling efficient and rapid tissue digestion, crosslink reversal, and nucleic acid release.
Covaris, Inc., an innovator in the life science tools and the clinical diagnostic market spaces, announced today that its European subsidiary, Covaris Ltd, which is located in the United Kingdom, will commence
operations on May 1, 2014.
