Performagene (PG-100)

Maximize DNA recovery for your genetic analysis and testing.

The critical step in genetic analysis and testing is the extraction of DNA from collected samples. Maximize the recovery of DNA from your Performagene samples with the PG-AC DNA extraction kit.

  • Optimized chemistry for maximum recovery of DNA from nasal samples collected with Performagene product lines
  • High quantity sample (average 24.2 µg) to allow multiple assays from a single sample
  • Proven to provide consistent results with high molecular weight (greater than 23 kb)
  • DNA suitable for a wide range of downstream applications including microarray and sequencing (PG-AC1 and PG-AC4), PCR (PG-AC2 and PG-AC3)
  • Bar-coded for integration into laboratory information systems
  • Bank the sample for 1 year at room temperature or freeze it for longer term storage
  • Convenient workflow with complete technical support from collection through extraction
  • Very low bacterial content resulting in fewer failed samples
  • Cost effective method requires minimal equipment
  • Tube integrates into lab automation systems to increase efficiency, minimize sample handling steps and reduce handling errors
  • Efficient sample preparation with the option of DNA purification reagents

PG-AC is available in multiple volumes, depending on the number of preparations you require.
