Adaptive Focused Acoustics (AFA) Technology for DNA Shearing
Covaris provides tools and technologies to improve pre-analytical sample preparation. AFA enables a vast array of non-contact, isothermal processes to be developed for use in a broad range of applications in Genomics, Proteomics, Cell Biology and Drug Discovery, and Formulation.
Covaris also develops devices and workflow systems to improve the discovery and measurement of molecules and biomarkers in tissue.
Covaris AFA® (Adaptive Focused Acoustics®)transmits acoustic energy at ultrasonic frequencies (>400KHz) and very short wavelengths (~3mm) and is uniquely able to focus the energy into your sample. AFA controls the shearing forces that fragment nucleic acids to the selected size. The process is isothermal, non-contact, and quiet.
Covaris AFA technology in the M220 eliminates operator induced variations, improves recoveries, increases efficiency, and provides standardized results
