QuickGene series Nucleic Acid Isolation Systems use patented ultra-thin porous membrane to realize high speed, high purity and high yield nucleic acid extraction and purification.
June 28th, 2017 – Omaha, Nebraska and Glasgow, UK: ADS Biotec, a global leader in development of automated instruments and consumables for use in cytogenetic, pathology and research laboratories announces a strategic partnership with Kurabo Industries, Bio-Medical Division, a leading supplier of Nucleic Acid Isolation Systems and associated bio-consumables. The partnership enables ADS Biotec to actively promote, sell and support Kurabo’s QuickGene line of Nucleic Acid Isolation systems and consumables to the North American and European markets.
The revolutionary QuickGene product line uses a patented ultra-thin porous membrane to realize high speed, high purity and high yield nucleic acid extraction and rapid isolation of DNA or RNA from a variety of sample types. The ultra-thin (100 μm) polymer membrane is built into purification cartridges, with lysate, wash buffer and elution buffer driven through the low-pressure membrane by positive air pressure. The novel QuickGene systems enable the production of high purity nucleic acid at high yield in shorter time when compared to centrifugation through conventional glass fiber membranes.
” We are pleased to partner with ADS Biotec and appoint them as our Distributor for North America and Europe,” said Mr. Hideaki Uchida, General Manager at Biomedical Department of Kurabo Industries. He further added that “ADS Biotec has an excellent reputation and very well-established sales and support network. We look forward to working with ADS Biotec to grow the market for QuickGene products in North America and Europe”.
The QuickGene systems, employing their positive pressure method, enable semi-automated operation (Mini480 & Mini8L) as well as fully automated nucleic acid extraction using the Auto240L system. The automated QuickGene Auto240L system is capable of processing twenty-four 2ml blood samples within one hour.
” We are excited to partner with Kurabo Industries to bring their unique and innovative QuickGene solutions to the North American and European nucleic acid extraction market,” said Vijay Dube, CEO at ADS Biotec. He further added that “ADS Biotec, with its strong technical team and many years of experience in the nucleic acid business through its WAVE product line is committed to working closely with Kurabo Industries to bring this revolutionary solution to every genetic research and molecular diagnostics lab in our territories”.
