MoBiTec to Offer Kits for the Isolation of Circulating and Exosome-Associated Genomic DNA
Press release from: MoBiTec GmbH
MoBiTec's partner company HansaBioMed is the first company that developed kits for the isolation of circulating and Exosome-associated genomic DNA: EXO-DNA and EXO-DNAc
Circulating DNA is emerging as a novel non-invasive tool for disease monitoring. While most of the research has focused on circulating cell-free (cfDNA) or circulating-tumor-cell (CTC)-derived DNA, extracellular vesicle (EVs)-associated DNA (EVDNA) is emerging as a third valuable "liquid biopsy" platform. In fact, genomic single or double-stranded DNA and mitochondrial DNA have been recently detected in extracellular vesicles. In particular, the majority of double-stranded DNA seems to be associated with tumor-derived exosomes where it represents the entire genome of the cancerous tumor from which exosomes were derived. This discovery corroborates the potential of exosomes, which can be easily obtained from a simple blood test.
MoBiTec's partner company HansaBioMed is the first company that developed two kits for the isolation of circulating and Exosome-associated genomic DNA: EXO-DNA and the new EXO-DNAc, which includes a DNA concentrator for concentrating the yield (4 fold concentration) and increasing the purity of the DNA to the levels required for digital PCR (dPCR) analysis and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS).
• Discovering mutations by qPCR or digital PCR
• Direct exosome capture and DNA purification from biofluids of cell media without time-consuming purification steps
• Isolation and profiling of genomic EV-associated DNA by DNase treatment
• Highly pure circulating and EVs-associated DNA
• Fast and easy protocol
• Only small volume amounts required
• Suitable for concomitant profiling of cell-free circulating DNA and EV-associated DNA
• The only kit on the market providing Exosome Standards as control
