The Sample Processor technology used in the RESOLUTION™ System, is also available as a standalone device, providing very high quality, very high molecular weight DNA (50 kb – 500+ kb). The Sample Processor uses a proprietary membrane-based Open Well Reactor (OWR). The OWR design allows for the sequential addition of reagents while the sample is pinned on the surface of the membrane by forces created by liquid flowing through the membrane. Purified high molecular weight DNA is eluted from the membrane simply by reversing the flow of the final wash buffer.
The Sample Processor can extract, purify, and manipulate DNA for many downstream applications, such as whole genome sequencing and genome mapping. Protocols for the Sample Processor are flexible, allowing for variations in the number of steps, reagents, volumes, times, and temperatures
