Vivantis Technologies announces the establishment of a European centre to support and promote the sales and distribution of its range. Vivantis specialize in the production of Restriction Enzymes, DNA extraction kits, DNA amplification reagents including kits for molecular biology applications, recombinant enzymes, improved protein stains, markers and ladders.
To mark this event Vivantis is running a promotion for its GF-1 Nucleic acid extraction kits. These kits provide a rapid and efficient method for purification of nucleic acid from various samples.
The purification columns in the kits are fixed with a specially-treated glass filter membrane that is uniquely designed to efficiently bind DNA in the presence of high salts. The kit applies the principle of a spin mini-column technology and the use of optimized buffers ensure that only DNA and/or RNA is isolated while cellular proteins, metabolites, salts and other impurities are removed during subsequent washing steps. Water or low salt buffers with the appropriate pH is then used to elute highly pure DNA and/or RNA, ready to use for many routine molecular biology applications.
The Vivantis GF-1 nucleic acids extraction kits series are designed to extract DNA from bacteria, plant samples, tissue samples, forensic samples, plasmid, virus and blood samples. They are also designed to extract total RNA, blood RNA and Viral RNA. Additionally there are GF-1 kits for Gel recovery and PCR clean-up kit, or the AmbiClean kit which has both functions in one kit.
Vivantis is a research-based biotechnology company which was founded in 2002. The company specialize in the production of Restriction Enzymes, DNA extraction kits, DNA amplification reagents and other related products for molecular biology research. Says Vivantis: “Having a European presence will help support our distribution network and customers. Having a warehouse inside the European Community will provide a quicker and less expensive way for users to obtain our products”
