oKtopure specification

Key to the sbeadex™ / oKtopure™ combination is the ability to generate unique protocols combined with specific buffers and lysising conditions which allow the generation of DNA from difficult species.

While sbeadex chemistry delivers nucleic acid from more than 90% of species, often our team is required to work with collaborating laboratories to generate bespoke protocols that deliver DNA preparations designed for particular processing applications.
