Nucleic Acid Extraction Platforms: Manual & High
Throughput
Automated Solutions
HiMedia Laboratories Pvt. Ltd.

Gene based technology has revolutionized clinical diagnostics. This has led to tremendous advancement in point of care testing by rapid and accurate detection of markers for a wide range of diseases and health conditions. High prevalence of infectious diseases and the rising need for better healthcare services to provide timely diagnosis are driving factors for the growth of global market for molecular diagnostics. The key to successful molecular testing lies in captivating a good amount of nucleic acid, i.e. DNA or RNA. In other words, nucleic acid extraction forms the base in any kind of molecular research or testing protocol. In a multidimensional approach, HiMedia, one of the leading Indian biosciences company set up a full-fledged platform consisting of manual extraction kits, automated systems and high throughput solutions for nucleic acid extraction. Initially, the company came up with manual extraction kits for purification of DNA and RNA from a wide range of clinical samples such as blood, serum, sputum, tissues, etc. The company’s motto is to develop innovative products or customize products to meet end user requirements.

Being abreast with the latest trend, as automation became the next essential requirement in healthcare settings, HiMedia launched InstaNX an automated system in the year 2018 that utilizes a patented vacuum based cutting-edge technology for extraction. This system, capable of processing twelve samples at one go, is extremely versatile and serves the purpose in hospitals, diagnostic centers and small testing laboratories. Later, scaled it up to 32 and 96 sample processing systems with InstaNX Mag Series of instruments based on magnetic bead technology along with best in class magnetic extraction kits that offer high-throughput screening of samples. In challenging times like these testing facilities often face overloading of samples and inadequate workforce. That is when these instruments are preferred for quick processing of samples because they have a short turn-around time and require minimum human intervention.

Both manual and automated extraction platforms are very convenient for use in terms of customization. Different kits have been optimized for different sample types that makes the selection easier and aids in seamless extractions. The excellent quality and purity of end product, i.e. DNA and RNA enable direct use for downstream processes such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), real time PCR, and digital PCR, which are one of the prime methods of disease detection.

With increasing need of speedy, accurate and easy techniques for diagnosis of diseases, the molecular diagnostics market will continue to grow further which in turn will double-up the demand for such innovative products down the lane. In a nutshell, these improvements will make molecular diagnostic assays a more useful tool in a broader range of clinical paradigms.
