Epoch Featured Products
Silica membrane based phenol-free nucleic acid extraction and purification followed
the serendipitous discovery by Vogelstein et. al that glass tubes and scintillation
vials bind DNA quantitatively. This unique way of purifying DNA/RNA from various
sources has been proven to be the most efficient, reliable and fast way for preparing
DNA/RNA for a variety of molecular manipulations.
At Epoch Life Science, nucleic acid binding properties of silica membranes with varying
constituents have been studied. Binding capacities under different chemical conditions,
such as wide range of pH, ionic strength, temperature and biological contexts have
been carefully quantitated and optimized. Our spin columns are only made of silica
membranes which (a) bind nucleic acid most selectively, (b) with high capacity,
and (c) release the bound nucleic acids easily to provide superior purity and
highest yield of recovery.
Much attention has also been taken for an easier life of everyday bench scientists.
Protocols have been maximally optimized and streamlined to save time and efforts.
Scientist with previous experience on other purification systems will find transition
to Epoch effortless.
Spin columns are designed with extra care. Frosted necks provide safe marking places
away from washable surface by ethanol-containing buffers, saving you headache on
possible confusion. Slim dimension allows full load of all positions on standard
microcentrifuge, maximizing your productivity. No curbsome lid on collection tube.
