Our products for Life Science applications
Our portfolio of Life Science products for research use is continuously growing. Currently, we offer the following products:
Rapid Nucleic Acid Extraction
Accessories and Instruments
SwiftX™ DNA (cat.no. SXD-25)
Versatile and rapid extraction of DNA of viruses, bacteria, parasites, animals and humans from a wide range of samples.
- Direct extraction protocol for swabs and solid samples
- Reverse purification for efficient inhibitor removal
- bead-based concentration step for human & animal cells, parasites and bacteria in liquid samples
- swabs, pre-concentrated cells, dried blood spots, tissue samples, fine-needle aspirates, tissue fluid, CSF, hair follicles, etc.
- Up to 1mL urine, cell cultures, saliva, throat washes, etc.
- Up to 200µL whole blood, tissue suspensions, etc.
SwiftX DNA was developed to match the workflow and performance of the discontinued QIAGEN SpeedXtract® Nucleic Acid Kit.
SwiftX™ Swabs (cat.no. SXS-50, SXS-200)
Rapid extraction of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) from swabbed samples and liquid media.
- can be used with various swab types (flocked, polyester, cotton)
- can also be used to extract from swab media as well as saliva
- very simple workflow with ultra-low consumable requirements
- RNA and DNA ready to amplify in less than 15min
- over 200 extractions per hour possible (semi-automated workflow)
- compatible with all common amplification technologies
SwiftX™ Swabs has been validated for extraction of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) RNA from nasopharyngal as well as oropharyngal swabs. Swabs can be transported dry or if required in transport media, such as saline or VTM.
RAA isothermal nucleic acid kits
RAA (recombinase aided amplification) is an interesting and fast alternative to conventional PCR manufactured by Qitian Gene Biotechnology:
- as sensitive as PCR - but finished in 15 minutes - no need for a PCR cycler
- real-time results in 5-10 minutes using fluorescence probes
- Well-suited for Point-of-Care (POC) applications
- freeze-dried reagent mix
