The Pippin Prep allows researchers to easily collect from a mixture of DNA fragment sizes, narrow and even fragment distributions as well as wide ranges of fragments with minimal effort. Up to 5 samples can be ran at once, with no possibility of cross-contamination.
Benefits of the system
Trained users will have keycard access to the lab and will be able to book and use the analytical instruments. For ease of management, molecular biology instruments located in the BNL are also part of the Analytical core. Researchers can also engage BNL staff to perform basic molecular biological experiments such as recombinant protein expression. Cost will be on a project-by-project basis and will include staff man-hours, materials used and instrument recharges.
