DNA Extraction from FFPE Samples and DNA/RNA Shearing using Covaris AFA.
Scientists choose the Covaris DNA Extraction and DNA/RNA Shearing Service for several reasons; e.g.
Project work – you may prefer to immediately use the Covaris Services rather than purchase an instrument based on project timing.
Increased throughput – customers with a single-tube Focused-ultrasonicator (S-Series or M-Series) will use our Extraction Service when a project requires a higher throughput.
Evaluation – sometimes customers want to evaluate the Covaris AFA technology with their samples before purchasing an AFA system.
FFPE Extraction Service
High performance extraction from FFPE samples
With truXTRAC, Covaris has developed a solution utilizing Adaptive Focused Acoustics (AFA) technology for the high efficiency extraction of nucleic acids from FFPE tissues. The truXTRAC technology produces high yield and improved quality.
Covaris will send you the required number of sample processing tubes. Customers will place their samples in the tubes and send them to Covaris.
Covaris will process the FFPE samples and send extracted DNA to the customer, with electropherogram confirmation if requested.
* DNA Extraction Service is limited to customers within the continental United States. For special requests outside of the continental United States, please contact Covaris.
DNA/RNA Shearing Service
for Next-Gen Sequencing
The Covaris AFA process is the Industry Standard for DNA fragmenting and is used by major genome and clinical research centers world-wide.
Using the DNA Shearing Service provides the same benefits as using your own Covaris Focused-ultrasonicator:
Reproducible, narrow size distribution
Non-contact, closed tube–no chance of cross contamination
Isothermal, high recovery process
Compatible & validated with ALL Next-gen sequencing platforms—SOLiD/Ion Torrent, Roche/454, Illumina/HiSeq to MiSeq
How the Service works:
More information, including prices, is available in the DNA Shearing < 1.5kb or DNA Shearing > 1.5kb Agreements. Contact Covaris for prices (Email: email@example.com) if you have more than 16 samples.
Follow the protocol in the order form and then ship DNA samples to Covaris.
Covaris will process the DNA samples according to the base-pair range specified by the customer, sheared DNA samples are returned to the customer, with electropherogram confirmation if requested, within 24 hours upon receiving the samples.
* DNA Shearing Service is limited to customers within the continental United States. For special requests outside of the continental United States, please contact Covaris.
