ChipGenie edition P: On-chip DNA-isolation with magnetic beads

This procedure describes the generation of genomic DNA e.g. for downstream PCR out of a variety of samples such as blood or pathogen-containing liquids. Magnetic beads inside a microfluidic chip bind the DNA from cells (blood cells or bacteria) lysed inside the chip. Washed, pure DNA is extracted from beads and the chip.

Depending on sample and application the single steps vary slightly.
