  • Product Information
    The PicoPLEX WGA Kit, developed and manufactured by Rubicon Genomics, Inc., efficiently amplifies total DNA from single cells or their DNA equivalent about 1 million-fold to produce 2–5 micrograms of amplified DNA in under 3 hours. The kit can also be used successfully in situations where the low input amount is uncertain as it works well over a range of inputs up to thousands of cells or several ng DNA to achieve this final yield of amplified DNA. Both AT- and GC-rich regions are represented reproducibly using this kit. With single blastomere and polar bodies, the kit is able to achieve 95% amplification success rate. The kit performs reproducibly and generates greater than 90% correlation coefficients for qPCR Ct data from replicate single-cell reactions. This method features single-copy sensitivity as well as high specificity with an expected 5 PCR cycle delay between experimental samples and non-template negative controls. The PicoPLEX WGA Kit produces amplified DNA fragments suitable for Copy Number Variation (CNV) analysis using oligonucleotide aCGH or qPCR; SNP genotyping, mutation detection and sequencing.

    The size range of amplified product from a sorted single cell or 15 pg DNA (diluted human genomic DNA equivalent to two diploid human cells). 10 μl of 75 μl reactions were analyzed by 1.4% agarose gel electrophoresis: Lane 1: no cell/DNA negative control, Lanes 2 and 3: independent reactions using 15 pg human genomic DNA. Note: The appearance of amplified product will be identical whether the starting material is a single cell or this amount of DNA. Marker M is 1 μg 2-Log DNA Ladder (NEB #N3200 ).
