One solution, multiple species
High DNA quality and yield
Simplify workflow significantly
High purity & yield from a broad range of plant types
Extracting and purifying DNA from plant cells present unique challenges, often resulting in unfavorable gDNA yield and purity for downstream applications. Rigid plant cell walls must be lysed appropriately to expose the cytoplasm. Native DNA contaminants, such as polysaccharides, proteins and polyphenols, affect the quality and yield of the DNA isolated and can inhibit downstream enzymatic reactions.
BioEcho’s extraction technology involves a lysis step that is tailored to the specific type of plant sample allowing efficient lysis and purification and avoiding carryover of contaminants.
- Up to fivefold more DNA yield than with silica-based plant kits
- No native DNA contaminants
- No toxic substances or chaotropic salts, which inhibit downstream applications
The fastest & simplest plant DNA extraction
Tedious bind–wash–elute procedures build a bottleneck in daily routines. Our EchoLUTION technology relies on single-step nucleic acid isolation with a one-minute centrifugation. Nucleic acids pass through the purification matrix without interaction, while impurities are held back and are completely removed. Different from the conventional silica-based bind–wash–elute nucleic acid extraction method, this allows for today’s fastest and simplest plant DNA extraction with highest purity.
- Process 96 samples in less than 1.5 hours
- Half the steps of common methods
“We have tested and have very good experiences with BioEcho’s Plant 96 kit. The consumption of plastic is less and the extraction process is faster and simpler than before on our Cybio-Felix robot. We have had a really good collaboration with BioEcho and their local distributor Kem-En-Tec Nordic, who have been very flexible and helpful with the setup and automation process.”

“We compared the EchoLUTION Plant DNA Kit with our established silica-technology based kit. Using the BioEcho kit we obtained genomic DNA in high yields much faster and easier than before. We were impressed about the simplicity of the whole process.”
