The GENE PREP is the latest fully automated genomic DNA extraction, purification and preparation system from AutoGen. The system uses our proven solution phase extraction chemistry for high throughput extraction at a low cost per prep. The GENE PREP offers an option tube stacker for unattended processing of up to 192 samples. The built-in centrifuge processes 48 samples per batch in 2 hours consistently and reliably. The GENE PREP has protocols for DNA purification and extraction from tissues, cells, plants and plasmid preps.
