Adaptive Focused Acoustics® (AFA™) uses focused bursts of very high frequency, short wavelength acoustic energy, transmitted to a small focal zone within the sample vessel (acoustical cuvette), a critical component and link in the acoustic circuit.
g-TUBE is a single-use device that shears genomic DNA into selected fragment sizes ranging from 6 kb to 20 kb. The entire shearing process takes only 3 minutes. Up to 24 samples can be processed simultaneously with high reproducibility using a compatible bench-top centrifuge.
tissueTUBE devices provide closed-vessel cryofracture of biological tissue, which increases sample surface area and enhances nucleic acid extraction. tissueTUBE combined with a glass AFA acoustical cuvette allows for seamless integration of tissue cryofracture with a CryoPrep tissueTUBE Impactor.
