Setting a new standard in nucleic acid isolation

Analytik Jena offers an extraordinary wide range of purification and isolation kits for nucleic acids, all made in Germany. Those are based on own technologies and patents. It ranges from manual to automated solutions for DNA/RNA extraction of most starting materials.



innuCONVERT Bisulfite Kits

The innuCONVERT Bisulfite Kits enable users to detect methylated vs. non-methylated cytosines: whilst non-methylated cytosines are chemically converted by bisulfite treatment into uracil, methylated cyctosines remain unmodified. 


PME free-circulating DNA Extraction Kit

With this new technology, Analytik Jena AG is opening up new diagnostic possibilities with enormous potential and various applications.
The new enrichment and isolation method is for example used in tumor diagnostics. Circulating cell-free DNA is also gaining increasing significance in pre-natal diagnostics, the diagnosis of metabolic diseases, or sports medicine.

enabling technologyFree-circulating DNA occurs in plasma, serum, and urine, among other things, but only in small fragments and very low concentrations.The kit developed by the Analytik Jena subsidiary AJ Innuscreen GmbH is based on polymer-mediated enrichment (PME) technology. The cell-free DNA of the sample is combined with a polymer and then concentrated. The resulting DNA-polymer complex can be processed by means of a simple DNA extraction method.

The kit is the first in AJ's polymer-mediated enrichment line, but adds to an already vast catalog of nucleic acid sample preparation kits. The life sciences division manufactures, for example, 12 different kits to isolate genomic DNA depending on sample sources and size of reaction. There are also kits for plasmid DNA, microbial DNA and RNA, total RNA, as well as kits for different PCR clean-up needs.
