Bertin launches Precellys Nucleic Acid Extraction Kits

Precellys® homogenizers & nucleic acid extraction kits: the optimized solution to purify DNA and RNA from your tissue samples.


DNA and RNA extractions from animal tissues and cultured cells are routine techniques used by many molecular biology laboratories. High quality nucleic acid is a prerequisite to succeeding in a series of downstream analyses. Nonetheless, isolating DNA and RNA from biological samples can be a challenging procedure.

High quality and high yield DNA and RNA can be obtained from any type of tissue sample thanks to an optimal extraction process that relies on 2 steps: tissue homogenization and nucleic acid purification. Finding the appropriate protocols for each one of these steps, and combining them to obtain the best out of any tissue sample is a mandatory milestone for most laboratories.

With its wide range of tissue homogenizers, Bertin Instruments addresses the first challenge of tissue disruption by using a powerful 3D bead-beating technology under the Precellys brand. Bertin Bioreagent has thus developed two kits to extract DNA and total RNA from animal tissues to complete the sample prep workflow leading to the release of the Precellys Tissue DNA Extraction Kit (D05701.500) and the Precellys Tissue Total RNA Extraction Kit (D05711.50).

Bertin Life Sciences R&D team has validated the quality of the Precellys Tissue DNA Extraction Kit (D05701.50) and the Precellys Tissue Total RNA Extraction Kit (D05711.50). These kits allow for the extraction and purification of DNA and total RNA from a variety of tissue samples such as heart, liver, ear or tail. The silica based mini column technology delivers highly pure nucleic acids that are free from protein and other contaminants and compatible with a large range of downstream applications such as PCR, RT-qPCR, sequencing, genotyping, Southern blot and Northern analysis.

The kits include a comprehensive user guide with optimized protocols for tissue homogenization and nucleic acid purification.

The Precellys Tissue DNA Extraction Kit and the Precellys Tissue Total RNA Extraction Kit are the solution for all of your genomic applications. Please contact our customer service if you need a quote.
