Telesis Bio Announces Commercial Release of Cell-free Amplification Kit for Generation of Transfection-scale DNA


New Kit offers BioXp automation workflow from candidate sequence to amplified DNA in days

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Telesis Bio Inc. (NASDAQ: TBIO), a leader in automated multi-omic and synthetic biology solutions, today announced the commercial release of its BioXp® De novo Cloning and Amplification kit on the BioXp 3250 and BioXp 9600 systems. This cell-free DNA amplification kit provides an efficient automated solution for building and amplifying DNA constructs to transfection-scale quantities in researchers’ labs by skipping tedious bacterial scale-up and eliminating unpredictable service provider delivery times.

The new kit will provide a robust and reliable solution to progress from sequence to functional screening in days instead of weeks, empowering researchers in iterative discovery applications such as antibody hit-to-lead screening and protein engineering to streamline and control their workflow timelines.


“This new solution for cloning and amplifying user-provided sequence to transfection scale, is an exciting new addition to our existing family of DNA amplification kits that enable DNA preparation for functional testing by supporting amplification of user-provided linear or circular plasmid DNA. Now, with the De Novo Cloning and Amplification kit, customers can go one step further and generate amplified DNA directly from a designed sequence. We believe the introduction of this kit further enables researchers to overcome molecular biology workflow bottlenecks in candidate screening with a simple solution that provides the workflow stability, control and efficiency they need to accelerate the path to transformational therapies.” said Todd R. Nelson, Ph.D., CEO and Founder of Telesis Bio.
