KASP genotyping 


If you have you ever wondered “How does KASP work?”, this series of videos will explain.
 

KASP genotyping chemistry and the components
 

This is the first video in the series and  explains the components which are used in a KASP reaction.


When you run a KASP genotyping reactions 
 

This second video shows what happens when you run a KASP genotyping reaction, how this results in a fluorescent single and how it is measured


Analysing KASP genotyping data

 

This final video shows how KASP genotyping data is analysed and also describes some of the key benefits of the KASP chemistry.

Instrumentation 

A range of instrumentation to facilitate laboratory extraction and genotyping workflows.
 

DNA extraction


oKtopure™ - automated DNA extraction instrument


oKtopure automated extraction robot -  this hands-off robotic platform produces ultra-pure DNA using our proprietary sbeadex™ magnetic bead-based chemistry.
 

Genespin™ - Semi-automated DNA extraction robot


Genespin semi-automated extraction - this ultra high-throughput robotic platform, produces pure DNA by utilising our 384-well Kleargene spin plate chemistry

Genotyping 

 

repliKator™ - plate replication

DNA arraying - automated microtitre plate replication and arraying. This is a high-throughput solution to arraying 384- and 1536-well microtitre plates.
 

Meridian™ - liquid dispenser

Liquid dispensing - machine capable of high-speed, accurate low volume dispensing (down to 1µL) for 96-, 384- and 1536-well plates. This is used to dispense our KASP reaction mix
   

Fusion3™ & Kube™ - plate sealers

Plate sealing- introducing 2 plate sealers: the Kube (which uses industry-standard heat sealing) and the Fusion3 (which uses laser sealing to produce a very strong, fine weld good for 1536-well plates).
 

Hydrocycler™ - Thermal cycler

Hydrocycler PCR thermal cycler -  ranging from bench-top to a standalone 64-plate machine, the water-based hydrocylers allow high-throughput PCR thermal cycling.
