Kits & Reagents
Covaris offers sample extraction kits and reagents optimized for performance with AFA® Focused-ultrasonicators and cryoPREP® Extraction Systems. The enhanced extraction kits and buffers provide the highest quality samples to seamlessly integrate with your applications and improve your analytical results. AFA-enabled kits include FFPE extraction kits, chromatin shearing kits, cfDNA extraction kits, protein extraction buffers and more!
Covaris truXTRAC Automated FFPE kits, including the truXTRAC FFPE Total NA Auto 96 Kit, enable the extraction of high-quality DNA, RNA and proteins from FFPE tissue samples using AFA-energetics and can be automated or semi-automated.
Covaris truChIP Kits include optimized reagents and protocols for chromatin shearing for use with AFA Focused-ultrasonicators.
cryoPREP starter kits for use with specific models of cryoPREP Dry Pulverizers. Kits include consumables and accessories as applicable.
A range of extraction buffers for the efficient protein extraction from cells and tissues optimized for your downstream application.
All Covaris Focused-ultrasonicator instruments are compatible with truXTRAC FFPE kits. However, each instrument will require specific accessories that may need to be purchased separately. Please reference the truXTRAC FFPE Protocols for more detailed information. For more information please contact Covaris Application Support or at [email protected].
Many formaldehyde reagents contain methanol as a stabilizing agent to prevent oxidation and polymerization. Based on our evaluations, we have shown that the presence of methanol leads to the generation of large molecular weight chromatin complexes resistant to shearing.
