The UK genomic tools developer, RevoluGen Ltd., today announces the launch of its Fire Monkey / Fire Flower 10 column kit, primarily for the extraction and purification of High Molecular Weight DNA (HMW-DNA).
The Fire Monkey/ Fire Flower 10 column kit will enable researchers to extract longer and purer DNA from animal and bacterial samples than previously possible, in less than one hour, using standard laboratory equipment.
Fire Monkey significantly improves long-read sequencing results by extracting long-fragment DNA with minimal small-fragment DNA. In addition, the size selection protocol of Fire Flower can improve the molecular ratio of any extraction kit and is compatible with all sequencing technologies.
Pieter Haitsma Mulier, CEO of RevoluGen commented “After six years of development and testing, and extensive validation with academic partners on leading DNA sequencing platforms, we are excited to be launching the Fire Monkey / Fire Flower 10 column kit, our first commercial product. DNA extraction and purification is a mandatory step in the sequencing process, and the longer the length of the DNA fragments in the starting material, the better the results of any subsequent long-read sequencing. We are pleased to be able to provide a vital tool for researchers in the rapidly expanding market of long-read sequencing.”
