Descrição geral

GenomePlex® Single Cell Whole Genome Amplification Kit utilizes a proprietary technology based on random fragmentation of genomic DNA and conversion of the resulting small fragments to PCR-amplifiable library molecules flanked by universal priming sites. WGA is achieved by PCR amplification of the library molecules using universal oligonucleotide primers. This kit is designed to amplify the genome of a single cell. This rapid and straightforward method provides millionfold amplification yielding microgram quantities of genomic DNA from a single cell. Traditional single-cell whole genome amplification methods yield insufficient quantities with significantly biased representation. The kit includes all the reagents necessary for cell lysis and successive whole genome amplification. Single cells can be isolated by fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), laser capture microdissection (LCM), dilution, or any other applicable method.


GenomePlex® Single Cell Whole Genome Amplification Kit has been used:

  • to amplify the isolated DNA[1]
  • in whole genome amplification (WGA)[2]
  • to amplify the microdissected DNAs[3]
  • for the amplification of circulating tumor cell genomic DNA from metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer cells[4]
  • for the detection of copy number variations (CNV) by single-cell low-coverage whole-genome sequencing (SLWGS) method[5]
  • Gel electrophoresis
  • qPCR
  • comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) microarray
  • Short tandem repeats (STR) analysis
  • single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analysis

Características e benefícios

  • Highly yield and accuracy of DNA amplification within four hours
  • Amplification of DNA from any source such as cancer cells, epithelial cells, lymphocytes, fibroblast amniotic cells, polycarbonate fixed cells, and plant cells
  • A complete representation of the entire genome with minimal allele bias
  • WGA DNA polymerase is suitable for use with downstream applications including gel electrophoresis, qPCR, comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) microarray, short term repeat (STR) analysis, and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analysis, TaqMan® assays, and microsatellite analysis
