Diffinity Genomics issued patent for their technology "Spatially inhomogenously functionalized porous media and method for use in selective removal of contaminants". The patent was issued June 23, 2015.
"Love the Tips, the traces on the sequencing (Sanger) are much higher in amplitude and the recovery is amazing, Thanks"
- Researcher, Animal Health Diagnostic Center, Cornell University
"We have recently switched to Diffinity Rapidtips for all our pcr cleanups. Previously we were using
Qiagen's MinElute PCR Purification kit and getting poor results with our sequencing, particularly with
our smaller amplified segments (less than 200bp). Since switching to the Diffinity tips, our sequencing
reactions work much better and the amount of good sequences has increased dramatically."
- Mindy Kendrick, Lab Manager, University of Wisconsin
"My undergrad said it was the easiest cleanup he could imagine. He was amplifying a 780 base cDNA fragment for a rare mRNA. His sequence histograms were some of the cleanest I have seen for cDNA PCR products. I wish these tips had been around when we did 7,200 ESTs from a
normalized library. They would have saved us hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars.”

In my work in the Department of Plant Agriculture of the University Guelph (Canada’s largest and most diverse applied plant biology department), I do research in soybean breeding and genetics where thousands of samples may need genetic screening. I use the RapidTips primarily for bidirectional PCR-amplicon Sanger sequencing. This product is a HUGE time saver! PCR cleanup using spin columns is very time consuming if one has hundreds of samples to process. There was a tremendous amount of efficiency gained by using the RapidTips.
The RapidTips are a perfect fit for increasing the throughput for PCR cleanup and ultimately sequencing. This has led to improvements in integrating molecular tools into the breeding program.
