TNO develops generic technology for rapid inexpensive isolation of DNA from analysis samples

Monday 15 January 2007

TNO has developed a new tool based on micro/nanotechnology, called SamPrep, that enables the straightforward isolation of DNA from biological material. In molecular diagnostic research the first stage of to isolate DNA from sample material for further analysis. DNA analysis already makes use of high-tech options, but pretreatment of the sample still tends to be time-consuming, manual and, therefore, expensive. The manual aspect causes the same problem for reproduceability. SamPrep offers a fast, inexpensive and reproduceable solution.
