Complete Lysis and Extraction Kit

The PrecisionPak™ is a bundle of the bead lysis kits with the extraction kits. This means that all the necessary components to homogenize tissue samples and isolate specific biomolecules from the homogenates are now available in one single package. Additionally, we also provide optimized protocols to make it easy for you!

The PrecisionPak™ offers a streamlined solution for biomolecule extractions from many sample types. This bundle combines our popular and versatile bead lysis kits with extraction kits. Our lysis kits are available in 1.5mL screw cap and snap-cap tubes for Bullet Blender homogenizers, and 2 mL screw cap tubes compatible with most brands of homogenizers.

Why Choose the PrecisionPak™?

Superior Yield and Quality

The magnetic bead technology isolates high quantities of nucleic acid. Because of the high surface area of the beads in suspension, more biomolecules are able to bind. Unlike a packed column, the free-floating beads mix with the nucleic acids in the homogenate where maximum binding can occur.

RNase A (in DNA isolation kit) and DNase I (in RNA isolation kit) are included in respective kits to enable removal of contaminating species of nucleic acids. The result is high quality DNA or RNA product.

Optimized Protocols

We provide protocols that have been developed and tested for your specific application. Bullet Blender® speed and time settings are optimized to avoid DNA degradation for high quality product. In-house data is available and reflects the quality of the kits. See our extensive protocol page here!

Comprehensive Kits

The PrecisionPak provides everything you need: all the buffers and reagents and the protocol for high quality and high yield. The PrecisionPak includes  additional enzymes such as Proteinase K to facilitate tissue digestion and RNase A (in DNA extraction kit) to remove the contaminating RNA and DNase I (in RNA extraction kit) to remove the contaminating DNA. The kits also include an optimized protocol.

Save Time

Use of magnetic beads instead of spin columns eliminates the need of multiple centrifugation steps, which is both tedious and time-consuming. Our magnetic rack system enables you to batch process up to 8 samples in a rack. The magnetic field can be applied for wash steps and removed for binding steps, without the samples tubes ever leaving the rack. This saves time and provides convenience.
