iGEN Pure RNA
extraction technology specifically designed for prenatal samples: amniotic fluid and chronionic villus. New iGENatal kit is an optimized phenol-free version of iGENatal which keeps all the features that make from it a unique product in its market.
Specifically designed for low cellularity samples (5·10 ) with minimum sample size: 2-4 ml amniotic fluid or 2-3 mg chorionic villus.
High DNA extraction yield: It allows extraction of 70% more DNA quantity with respect to Gold standard.
High-quality and purity of DNA extracted, making it suitable for arrays-CGH and arrays-SNP without need for previous cell culture.
A260/A230 is over 2, meaning that DNA is macromolecule-free and above all.
A260/A280 ratio is between 1.7 - 1.9, what implies low RNA and peptide contamination.
Extraction time lower than 2 hours.
Does not contain phenol.
iGENatal was selected by the National Health System (NHS) of United Kingdom as part of their streamlined workflow in prenatal diagnostic based on array-CGH. See scientific article here: NHS research study.
iGENatal was developed in-house by igen biotech with the financial support of the Spanish Centre for Industrial Technology Development (CDTI) that belongs to the Ministry for Science and Innovation.
