MACHEREY-NAGEL´s know-how in the field of Filtration (cellulose and glass fibre filters, membranes), Testing, and Chromatography (e.g. chemically bound silica gels and polymeric phases) are a basis for the Company´s involvement in Bioanalysis. Since 1993 MACHEREY-NAGEL has been successfully developing, manufacturing, and world-wide marketing an increasing range of ready-to-use kits and consumables for nucleic acid purification (DNA and RNA) and protein purification. The Company provides innovative bioseparation technologies and high-value products in the area of life science research, genomics, genetics (e.g., analysis of transgenes, genetic identity with a view to GMO detection and quantification), breeding technologies, nucleic acid based molecular diagnostics, and proteomics. The Products are suitable for purification of e.g. genomic DNA from various samples like plants and food/feed, plasmid DNA, PCR products, and total RNA by manual or automated processing on all common laboratory automation workstations. The corresponding broad product portfolio is based on MACHEREY-NAGEL´s innovative core technologies such as silica-based anion exchanger (NucleoBond as patented procedure), silica-based membranes (NucleoSpin), ultrafiltration membranes (NucleoFast), beads based on silica or latex (NucleoTrap), and magnetic bead separation (NucleoMag).
