Size-Select DNA Fragments up to 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



The BluePippin instrument includes a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. A CPU is built in; an external PC is not required.
