Automated nucleic acid extraction
- ​from sustainability to global disease prevention​

Tecan and MACHEREY-NAGEL partnered together to tailor workflows for the automated extraction of nucleic acids to meet your needs.


Thanks to Tecan's Fluent® automation workstation, the liquid and plate handling eliminates all the tedious daily pipetting tasks, while MACHEREY-NAGEL's automation-friendly plasmid purification solutions are integrated into the cloning and plasmid construction workflows.”​​​​

Dr Ing Stephan Noack and Dr Julia Tenhaef from the Quantitative Microbial Phenotyping (QMP) research group at the FZJ’s Institute of Bio- and Geosciences​

Researchers at Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ) in Germany have incorporated the Fluent Automation Workstation into their workflow to enable rapid engineering of microbial strains that can convert renewable raw materials into value-added compounds. Creation and testing of novel producer strains with complex biosynthetic pathways is extremely slow and error prone when performed manually, and the Fluent allowed the researchers to increase the throughput and accuracy of their application.
