The miniTUBE is optimized for use with Focused-ultrasonicators to reproducibly shear genomic DNA into fragments ranging from 2 to 5 kb in size. Each type of miniTUBE (clear, blue or red) has a specific textured surface to provide the required shearing forces when used with the recommended AFA® settings. The shearing force is gentle and controlled to generate large DNA fragment with a tight fragment size distribution.

miniTUBE Features and Benefits
|Continuous isothermal control||No heat damage so sample quality is preserved|
|Non-contact, closed vessels||No cross contamination, clean-up, or aerosol formation|
|Accurate, Precise, Reproducible, and Robust||Processes and protocols are highly reproducible delivering exactly the size distribution needed for your application, so you have more DNA exactly the size you need with every experiment|
|Gentle||DNA is undamaged providing higher yields and better sensitivity in all downstream applications|
|Non-biased||Mechanical shearing delivers DNA fragments unbiased by sequence context, GC content, or other factors, providing the best template for all sequencing applications|
