EMnetik PCR Cleanup System
DNA Cleanup for Genetic Engineering
Monotonous, time-consuming column cleanup has been around since 1991—so a change is long overdue. And now it’s here. Replace your typical column cleanup steps with the benchtop EMnetik PCR System. You’ll spend half the time on PCR cleanup, which means you’ll have more time for the important activities in your lab. Bring your PCR cleanup into the 21st century.
Benefits of the EMnetik PCR System:
- ~2x faster turnaround time compared to column cleanups (16 min vs 30 min)
- >80% recovery (comparable to column cleanup kits)
- Significantly fewer touchpoints (< 50 touchpoints compared to 300 for columns)
- No need to handle small columns or use a single-channel pipette
- Move samples from a thermocycler to the EMnetik 24 system, and don’t move them again until final elution
- Intuitive user interface removes guesswork by providing clear, step-by-step instructions
Column-based cleanups are officially history.

The EMnetik System is the Future of Simplified PCR Cleanup
Figure 1. Comparison of an EMnetik PCR Cleanup System workflow with a column workflow.
You can see how the system alleviates common column pain points. 1 & 2: No more worries about smeared sample numbers or confusing 6s and 9s. Your samples can stay in a 24-well format—or the format used for your PCR or enzymatic reaction. You can save sample names, however, in a way that’s best for you, not written in ink on a column that can easily smudge. 3: Move samples directly from a thermocycler to the EMnetik system, reducing the potential for dropping them, and you won’t have to move them again. 4: Instead of using a single-channel pipette, you can use a multi-channel pipette to quickly process 24 samples. 5: Don’t transport samples to the closest centrifuge; complete the cleanup in one place with the user-friendly EMnetik 24 interface.
Automatic Magnetic Bead Mixing and Separating
Figure 2. A look inside the EMnetik 24 and the EMnetik PCR Cleanup kit.
Left: A photo illustrating the automatic mixing of reagent and sample. The system uses electromagnets to mix samples—no pipetting required. Right: An illustration of highly responsive magnetic beads binding only to the DNA in your sample. Once beads are mixed with your sample, the EMnetik 24 uses a magnet to pull samples to the side of the tubes so you can remove contaminants in the supernatant, leaving only your sample bound to the beads. The DNA can be eluted off in water.
