Easy, Rapid and Highly-Efficient Instrument for DNA Purification
The GeneDisc system is a complete, rapid, reliable and easyto- use solution for microbial testing in three simple steps from sample to result. After samples are extracted with the GeneDisc Ultra-Lyser, the DNA may be purified by utilizing the GeneDisc Ultra-Purifier. Extracted and purified DNA is then loaded into a GeneDisc Plate designed for specific detection and/or quantification of microorganisms of interest. The GeneDisc Plate is then placed into the GeneDisc Cycler for analysis. The analysis step by real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) runs in as little as an hour and the final results are displayed with no further operator intervention.

Purification of DNA Samples
For specific applications, such as quantification of Legionella in complex waters, DNA purification is a key step of sample preparation. DNA purification enables:
To reduce PCR inhibitions due to organic compounds from samples
To achieve highly accurate results.
The GeneDisc Ultra-Purifier ensures high quality DNA purification based on the technology of DNA molecules adsorption to silica and solvent washings. This protocol, applied to GeneDisc methods for Legionella, was validated by NF VALIDATION against NF T90-471 and ISO /TS 12869 standards.
Thus, sample preparation for GeneDisc method provides purified DNA samples with a high recovery rate, ideal for quantitative applications.
NF T 90-471 standard: Water quality—Detection and quantification of Legionella and/or Legionella pneumophila by concentration and genic amplification by real time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR)
ISO /TS 12869 standard: Water quality—Detection and quantification of Legionella spp. and/or Legionella pneumophila by concentration and genic amplification by quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR)
