GenSpin™ Basket is a basket designed to work in a microcentrifuge tube to separate your sample from solid materials like swabs, small evidence or cotton balls. The design of the GenSpin Basket has a contoured bottom that directs all the sample to four large weak areas at the bottom edge of the spin basket. Over 95% of the solution added to the CollectEject Swab is separated from the swab. Additionally, the GenSpin Basket bottom breaks open at a low speed. The slow speed and large openings allow for much larger fragments of DNA to be isolated.
The GenSpin Basket is used for separating small volumes of fluids from collection swabs, such as the Gentueri CollectEject™ Oral, Large Oral, Touch DNA and Blade Swabs. Typical DNA applications include genetic, forensic, human identity, animal diagnostic and environmental DNA testing. The spin baskets are ideal for pre-analytical cell lysis and DNA extraction methods for Next-Gen and Sanger Sequencing, STR and qPCR protocols. The GenSpin Basket design features a contoured bottom which directs 95% of the sample through the large openings during centrifugation. This, coupled with the ability to be spun at a lower speed than current spin baskets allows for the isolation of large fragment sizes of DNA.
