Baltimore biotech firm launches kit for rapid DNA extraction

The Nanobind CBB Big DNA Kit uses a magnetic disk with a high density of micro- and nanostructured silica on the surface. Circulomics says it can bind large amounts of DNA while protecting it from damage. (Circulomics image)

Circulomics Inc., a biotechnology company in Baltimore, recently launched a new kit that it said would let scientists more rapidly perform high-molecular-weight DNA extraction for long-read sequencing and genome mapping.

The Nanobind CBB Big DNA Kit, which is being sold as an early-access kit, uses a magnetic disk with a high density of micro- and nanostructured silica on the surface. Circulomics says it can bind large amounts of DNA while protecting it from damage.

The kit will help scientists attain the high quality and purity of DNA needed for long-read sequencing and genome mapping applications, according to the company.

It can be used for high-molecular-weight ultra-high molecular weight DNA extraction from cells, bacteria, and blood.
