Genomic analysis involves examining the sequence of DNA nucleotides contained in the cells of a living organism. One of the first steps in genomic analysis is to obtain a pure and concentrated DNA sample from the cells or tissue sample under study. The cells must be broken apart and the DNA must be separated from the cellular debris in the sample. Conventional techniques for doing this involve a sequence of chemical processing steps which are labor intensive, time consuming and error prone. Purigen Biosystems worked with Nuvation Engineering to develop a better way.
