PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: Unveiling the Power of Sample Concentrators in Molecular Biology
Among the array of table top molecular biology lab equipment, sample concentrators often linger in the shadows, unfamiliar to many researchers and industrialists. In this article, we aim to shed light on the potential applications of sample concentrators, unraveling their significance for researchers and elucidating how they can be instrumental in achieving specific research objectives.
Understanding Sample Concentrators: A Precise Evaporation Marvel
Needle Precision: Sample concentrators feature an intricate array of needles connected to an inert nitrogen gas supply. Unlike rotary evaporators, these needles can be adjusted with desired height without direct contact with the sample, ensuring precision in the concentration process.
Specialization in Sample Size: Tailored for molecular biology workflows, sample concentrators excel in concentrating samples of minute quantities, ranging from 2μl to 15 ml tube volumes. This specificity sets them apart from conventional rotary evaporators.
Advantages over Rotary Evaporators
Superior Concentration Technique: In the realm of molecular biology and DNA extraction, the sample concentrator’s method of gradually removing solvents through evaporation surpasses other techniques like air drying. This not only ensures superior concentration but also minimizes contamination risks.
Purity Enhancement for Downstream Processes: Sample concentrators play a pivotal role in eliminating interfering solvents, such as ethanol and buffers that could compromise the quality of downstream processes like PCR. The purity of the sample becomes a critical factor in influencing the success of PCR outcomes.
Yield and Quality Boost in DNA Extraction: Employing sample concentrator during sample preparation facilitates the removal of water and other liquids during sample homogenization. This, in turn, enhances the yield and quality of DNA produced, setting the stage for more robust molecular biology research.
