Bacterial DNA Extraction

Epicentre Biotechnologies

The QuickExtract™ Bacterial DNA Extraction kit extracts DNA from Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria for PCR, restriction digests, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, and optical mapping. The single-tube system incorporates Ready-Lyse™ Lysozyme (included), a reagent with 200-fold h...

Biotin-aRNA Amplification Kit

Epicentre Biotechnologies

The TargetAmp™ 1-Round Biotin-aRNA Amplification Kit 105 produces biotin-aRNA from as little as 25 ng of total RNA. The labeled RNA yields high-quality results on Affymetrix® GeneChip™ arrays as judged by signal intensity. A six-hour reaction lets the user begin hybridization the same day. Cost-effi...


Epicentre Biotechnologies

APex™ Heat-Labile Alkaline Phosphatase uses a single, quick, and convenient protocol to dephosphorylate blunt, 5´-overhang and 5´-recessed DNA ends, regardless of the length of the overhang. The novel enzyme functions over a wide range of pH, ionic strength, and temperature conditions and can be add...

DNA Isolation Kit

Epicentre Biotechnologies

The PlasmidMAX™ DNA Isolation Kit provides all of the reagents necessary to purify plasmids free of RNA and genomic DNA. The resulting DNA permits sequencing reads of at least 600 bases. This simple procedure requires only two 1.5 mL tubes, thus avoiding excess plastic-ware waste. The purification m...

Eukaryotic mRNA Production Kit

Epicentre Biotechnologies

The mScript™ mRNA Production System provides researchers with a fast and simple method for producing superior eukaryotic mRNAs. Incorporating an in vitro transcription system, capping enzymes, and RNA poly(A) tailing reagents, the kit contains all the reagents needed to produce transfection or micro...


Epicentre Biotechnologies

The new Terminator™ Exonuclease is a 5'-3' exonuclease that digests RNA with a 5'-phosphate such as prokaryotic 16S and 23S rRNA. Primary prokaryotic RNA transcripts (mRNAs) with a 5'-triphosphate are resistant to degradation. A simple one-hour enzymatic reaction using Terminator Exonuclease remove...

Fosmid and Cosmid DNA Purification

Epicentre Biotechnologies

The new FosmidMAX™ DNA purification kit provides reliable isolation of fosmid and cosmid DNA. The scalable protocol is based on a modified alkaline-lysis procedure that typically yields 0.6 to 25 mg of fosmid DNA from 1.5 to 100 mL, respectively, of a single-copy fosmid culture. Selective precipitat...

Gene Expression & Molecular Biology

Epicentre Biotechnologies

Epicentre's 2005–06 catalog introduces a variety of new products to amplify mRNA, ligate ssDNA to prepare templates for Rolling Circle Transcription or Replication, transcribe linear ssDNA using a single-stranded promoter and clone toxic genes in your favorite high-copy vectors.

mRNA-Seq Library Prep Kit

Epicentre Biotechnologies

The new ScriptSeq mRNA-Seq Library Preparation Kit uses terminal-tagging technology that helps simplify strand-specific tagging and the preparation of directional mRNA-Seq libraries from rRNA-depleted or poly(A) RNA. Starting from just 50 ng of rRNA-depleted mRNA, or poly(A) RNA, the ScriptSeq ki...

Nextera™ Sample-Prep Kits

Epicentre Biotechnologies

(Advertisement) New kits based on the Nextera™ sample-preparation platform are now available. While conventional sample-prep methods typically require microgram amounts of starting material to prepare a sequencer-ready library, these kits require as little as 50 ng of DNA. ...
