Biological Samples Processing Core (BSPC)


The facility offers DNA extractions from whole blood and other tissue types, and storage of extracted DNA. BSPC uses the Autopure LS™ nucleic acid purification instrument from Gentra Systems for extracting DNA. This instrument provides a highly automated process with very high quality DNA, samples are quantitated using OD 260/280. Once DNA has been obtained from the provided sample, it can be returned immediately or stored in -20°C freezer for future use. We'll also aliquot DNA at the desired concentrations. DNA can be stored indefinitely within BSPC. All samples are logged in our database and are bar-coded with our sample number and customer's identification code. BSPC will soon initiate RNA extraction.
