BluePippin Size Selection System
DNA Size Selection for Next-Gen Sequencing, with Pulsed-Field (100bp – 50kb)
Collect HMW DNA with High-Pass Filtering
The BluePippin has the DNA capabilities of the Pippin Prep, plus the extra benefit of pulsed-field electrophoresis for resolving and collecting high molecular weight DNA. For long-range genomic applications, high-pass filtering allows users to collect all fragments above a size threshold set by the user.
Target sizes or ranges of sizes are entered in software, and fractions are collected in buffer. Up to 5 samples/gel cassette may be run, with no possibility of cross-contamination.
Benefits of the BluePippin System
- Saves time and effort compared to manual gel purification
- Sample-to-sample reproducibility streamlines research
- Higher sample quality improves downstream analysis
Key Downstream Technologies
- Mate-pair sequencing
- Single molecule sequencing
- Bar-coded linked reads

Pre-Cast Agarose Gel Cassettes for DNA Size Selection
Gel cassettes for DNA selections are available in four agarose concentrations to provide a full range of size selection options between 100bp up to 50kb. For smaller fragment sizes, internal standards may be used for higher accuracy and increased sample capacity (from 4 to 5 samples/cassette). Higher molecular weight fragments require a dedicated lane to run a calibration marker. Run times are as little as 30 minutes, To resolve very large DNA fragments, pulsed-field runs may last several hours.
View the BluePippin cassette reference chart (in Documents section) to explore the DNA size selection options and run times.
