NAO® Basket is a semi-permeable system designed for releasing and concentrating human DNA from swab samples or other specimens during the extraction step.
NAO® Basket retains the lysis buffer during the lysis step of the forensic sample. Upon centrifugation on a high-speed centrifuge, valves in the bottom of the NAO® Basket open up and allow the sample lysate to pass through. The lysate containing the nucleic acids is efficiently recovered and collected in the provided collection tube, whereas the substrate remains in the NAO® Basket.
The combination of NAO® Basket and FLOQSwabs® provides more than 90% DNA recovery of the reference sample collected by the swab, particularly critical for crime scene evidence testing. The 20 mm breaking point designed on the 4N6FLOQSwabs® is compatible with the NAO® Basket.
1. Break the FLOQSwabs® at the breaking point into the NAO® Basket.
2. Add the lysis buffer and incubate as per extraction kit instructions.
3. Upon centrifugation, the sample lysate passes through the basket and is available for testing at the bottom of the tube.
Innovative product design allows the passage of DNA from samples into the tube using a tight leak-proof design that can endure vortexing, centrifugations, and various storage conditions.
NAO® Basket are available in several formats as single pouches or bulk packages, both with 1,5 ml or 2 ml vials.
NAO® Basket is compatible with commercial Nucleic Extraction Platforms.
