FTA Technology in 96 well format for high-throughput applications
Designed for the collection, long-term storage and purification of plasmid and BAC DNA from bacterial clones in a 96 well format.
Store sample DNA for years at room temperature
Plasmid DNA stored on CloneSaver Cards is stable at room temperature for at least four years...and counting.
DNA is Easily Accessible for Downstream Applications
Plasmid DNA can be eluted or used directly on a punch to transform bacteria either by electroporation or heat-shock methods.
Immobilized plasmid DNA on a CloneSaver Card punch can be used directly in a PCR. The PCR products remain in solution, do not bind to the punch, and are easily recoverable. Plasmid DNA can also be eluted for PCR or other studies.
Plasmid DNA eluted from a CloneSaver punch can be amplified by Rolling Circle Amplification, such as TempliPhi™ from GE Healthcare (formerly Amersham Biosciences) and then sequenced without the need for culture regrowth and plasmid purification.
CloneSaver Resealable Multi-Barrier Pouches
Used for transporting or storing the CloneSaver Card. The pouch is constructed with seven laminated layers that protect the card from exposure to gas or liquid contamination. There is a zip-lock resealable closure for easy access to the CloneSaver Card. The tamper-evident seal maintains sample security and the outer paper surface can be used for labeling or writing.
SPOT CloneSaver Holder
SPOT CloneSaver Holder is a rigid frame that allows automated spotting to standard CloneSaver Cards. It keeps the card flat for uniform and precise spotting of biological samples. The 96 well card is easily inserted into the ANSI/SBS-compatible frame, which can then be placed onto a liquid-handling deck just like a multiwell plate.
The SPOT CloneSaver Holder is compatible with standard liquid handlers manufactured by companies such as Beckman Coulter and Tecan Instruments.
