Biomeme’s pre-aliquoted and field-friendly M1 Sample Prep Cartridge Kits (RUO) enable you to extract purified nucleic acids from a variety of target types (e.g., viruses, gram neg/pos bacteria, archaea, spores, algae) and sample matrices (e.g., arthropods, tissue, plant material, swabs, filters, whole blood, transport media, homogenates, environmental water, urine, etc.) in minutes. RUO Cartridge types include DNA-HI (High-Concentration) and RNA/DNA.
RNA/DNA: for smaller volume liquids (e.g. whole blood) and direct swabs (works with both RNA and DNA)
DNA-HI: for larger volume liquids such as urine, transport media, environmental water, and homogenates
Each single-use cartridge includes a syringe and binding column tip. There’s no lab equipment, refrigeration, electricity, incubation, alcohol precipitation, or phenol chloroform extraction required. Instead, the cartridges utilize a filtration-based method in which nucleic acids selectively bind to the silica membrane inside our proprietary sample prep columns. Subsequent washes through a sequence of formulated buffers yields purified nucleic acids upon elution.
Each order includes the following:
|M1 Sample Prep® Cartridge||Cartridge containing Biomeme Lysis Buffer (BLB), Protein Wash (BPW), Wash Buffer (BWB), Drying Wash (BDW), and Elution Buffer (BEB)||96|
|Single-use 1mL Syringe||For use with M1 Sample Prep® Cartridge||96|
|Biomeme Sample Prep Column||Attaches to single-use 1mL Syringe||96|
Effortless: the extraction method is designed to be completed in 7 simple steps from sample collection thru elution.
Shelf-stable: all components are shelf-stable for 1 year when stored in a dry place, at room temperature (15-30°C / 59-86°F).
Lab-free: each cartridge comes pre- aliquoted for field-friendly transport and use, expediting DNA and RNA isolation anywhere.
Fast: complete sample prep in just a few minutes and results in 30-60 minutes when combined with a Biomeme thermocycler.
Pocket-sized: 2.65" L x 1" W x 0.7" H and weighing in at just under 13 grams keeps transportation light and cost-effective.
All-purpose: used by many industry leaders ranging from biothreat surveillance to environmental monitoring, food safety, and more.
For Research Use Only (RUO). Not for use in human or veterinary diagnostics.
