The Covaris microTUBE-15 is engineered to optimize DNA Shearing in small sample volumes with Focused-ultrasonicators utilizing Adaptive Focused Acoustics (AFA) technology.
15 μl sample volume processing
Accurate, tunable & unbiased fragments
High DNA recovery from low sample volumes
Fast, one-step workflow
Isothermal, highly controlled, and repeatable process
microTUBE-15 incorporates newly developed AFA BeadsTM. Due to their unique surface properties, AFA Beads enable fully controllable and repeatable DNA shearing in very low sample volume and at low acoustic power settings. 2D barcodes on each microTUBE-15 provide individual sample tracking.
Highly controllable DNA shearing
microTUBE-15 DNA shearing is highly reproducible and controllable. Performance is reproducible day to day and sample to sample with standard protocols developed and validated by Covaris.
Note 1: microTUBE-15 requires use of an M220, S220, E220 or LE220 Covaris Focused-ultrasonicator and associated rack or holder. Please see “Holders and Racks” below. Note 2: Centrifuge microTUBE Adapters are required for all microTUBE-15 AFA Beads Screw-Cap protocols. Please see “Accessories” below.
Centrifuge microTUBE Adapters (quantity 25, PN 500406): Centrifuge microTUBE Adapters are required to hold the microTUBE-15 in a standard microcentrifuge rotor designed for 1.5 or 2 mL microcentrifuge tubes. All microTUBE-15 protocols specify an initial centrifugation step.
