|BSF is announcing that it now has an AutoPure extraction robot in service and with the increased capacity we are also announcing some pricing changes for projects requiring DNA extraction services. With the addition of this technology, we hope to be able to expand our service options to a broader group of investigators with more cost effective pricing and faster turn around times for completion of projects requiring DNA extraction from blood samples. Fresh or frozen blood or cells may be submitted. Blood stored in PaxGene Tubes is also compatible with the extraction methods. The following link to the segment on AutoPure Operations will provide more details on the device and pricing points.|
The Biosample Services Facility, located at 65 Landsdowne Street Cambridge, Massachutes provides a broad spectrum of biosample processing, management, and banking services to investigators in the Harvard-Partners research community.
Services are available to IRB approved studies in the HMS-Partners community and beyond. We accept whole blood from appropriately consented subjects for processing to DNA, lymphoblast cell lines, serum, and plasma. We offer cryogenic storage of the purified products as required, in addition to tracking of sample histories in a Laboratory Information Management System dedicated to the BSF facility operation.
