A North West UK based company has recently developed an ultra-fast DNA sample preparation kit which reduces the turnaround times and increases the efficiency of sample preparations. The kit is suitable for both human samples (blood, urine, plasma) and microbiology samples (viruses, bacteria and parasites). The company is interested to engage with distributors predominantly in Europe, Asia Middle East, and USA.
This R&D led company specialises in developing novel solutions for bio- applications across multiple sectors. Its revolutionary system, which is showcased at various innovation events, is an ultra-fast 2-step protocol for multi-compliant DNA sample preparation. The DNA is compliant with many amplification techniques including polymerase chain reaction (PCR), Isothermal amplification and sequencing including next generation sequencing.
Current protocols often require numerous disposable components as well as small items of laboratory equipment such as mixers, centrifuges and heaters – all of which require a power source or at the very least batteries. These complex requirements present a major hurdle in truly exploiting the potential of DNA analysis – particularly with respect to point of care and near patient testing. At the other end of the scale, where there is a high degree of automation for sample preparation, the lack of flexibility makes it difficult to respond quickly to an urgent request such as a forensic DNA profile or early diagnosis disease test.
The proposed solution offered by this company is a two-step process with ready to use kit which consists of two pre-filled tubes enabling pre-analytical processing of a variety of samples including blood, bacteria, viruses and animal cells or tissues.
There is no need for sample preparation and within a few minutes the kit allows the users to go from cells to downstream nucleic acid investigations without the need for isolation or purification.
The product is capable of treating any DNA/RNA containing samples such as human samples (blood, urine, plasma) or microbiological samples (bacteria, viruses and parasites).
There are two main applications for the kit:
• Laboratories- free situations including point of care (POC) and field based diagnostics, integrated sample workflows and near-patient testing.
• Forensic Analysis- Sample preparation system consists of manual or robotics methods which involve instrumentation such as heaters and centrifuges, or expensive integrated platforms.
The offered solution will deliver amplifiable genetic material with reduced turnaround times and is applicable to various downstream investigations.
The company is interested to engage with distributors via distribution service agreement in Europe, Asia Middle East, and USA.
• The advanced kit can reduce the turnaround time to less than 3 minutes.
• Unlike conventional sample preparation methods no instrumentation or heating is required.
• Works with small amounts of starting material.
• Works with a broad spectrum of samples.
• Increased overall efficiency and decreased cost.
• Increased capacity for high number of samples processed per day.
• No need for refrigeration as it can be stored and shipped at room temperature
The company is looking for potential distributors in European, Asian, USA and Middle Eastern markets via distribution service agreements. Their main role would be to market the proposed solutions locally and nationally within their country.
Preferably organisations interested in becoming distributors should have experience of working within the following sectors:
• Laboratories / Research
• or Veterinary research
