The LightBench® automates a gel size selection process for up to 12 samples at a time. The platform integrates with robotic platforms or can be used by research labs. Yourgene’s LightBench® with Ranger® Technology allows you to automate the process of fetal DNA enrichment through size selection of cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in a way that secures a recovery yield averaging over 70%. Consumables for fragment length analysis and solution-based fluorescence assays also enable the LightBench® to act as a quality control system.
Enriching the fetal fraction through size selection of fragment lengths presents clinicians with the possibility of reducing the cost of the test and reducing the number of no-call tests. Providing better outcomes for both clinicians and patients.
Gel size selection, though tedious, results in improved value for numerous DNA sequencing and cloning processes, including NIPT. An issue with traditional methods of gel electrophoresis lies in its reproducibility and scalability.
