MicroGEM’s PDQeX Nucleic Acid Extractor is the next generation of thermocyclers. It uses powerful enzyme-driven extraction reagents with an innovative extractor cartridge and purification matrix. Just add heat and the closed-tube system produces DNA extracts in significantly less time (minutes rather than hours) than other extraction methods.

PDQeX Extraction Reagents consist of a cocktail of thermophilic proteinase and mesophilic cell wall degrading enzymes that systematically lyse cells, destroy nucleases, digest proteins and release nucleic acids.


PDQeX Extractor Cartridges, made from thermo-responsive polymers, pump extracted DNA through the purification medium while removing inhibitors.

PDQeX Temperature-Controlled Extraction activates the proteinase and forces the extract through a heat-burstable valve and proprietary purification matrix, removing cell debris and inhibitors.

  • Optimized for lysis and purification for double-stranded sequencing; also produces high-quality single-stranded extractions.
  • Simplified workflow in a single closed-tube system to handle challenging samples such as plant and fungi.
  • Perfect for labs looking for fast, hands-free, programmable sample processing.
  • Ideal for PCR, qPCR, STR, and Whole Genome Sequencing.
  • Produces DNA in less than 20 minutes.
