Single Cell Genome Amplification Kit

Tue, 07/21/2009 - 12:08pm

Rubicon Genomics released its PicoPlex Single Cell Whole Genome Amplification (WGA) kit. This product targets the pre-implantation genetic diagnostics (PGD), cancer research, and stem cell research markets, which require rapid, reproducible amplification to profile patient genotypes, karyotypes and mutations. PicoPlex enables reference labs to begin qPCR, microarray or sequencing analysis less than three hours after collecting patient cells. Researchers can use the kits to extract more genetic information from single cells with minimal background. It reproducibly amplifies total DNA one million-fold from single cells to produce five micrograms of amplified DNA in less than three hours. Rubicon Genomics, Inc., 734-677-6210,
