Since its founding in 1998, Omega Bio-tek has been at the forefront of nucleic acid purification by offering products for clinical and basic research, biotechnology, and agricultural applications. DNA and RNA extraction is the first step for so many downstream analyses, and efficient and clean nucleic isolation is crucial. Our goal is to offer high quality products to help you improve your workflows.
For the best option for all of your extraction needs, we offer multiple nucleic acid extraction chemistries including magnetic beads, silica membranes, and salting out. These three different methods are available in a wide range of different kits and configurations for a total of over 900 products. Our second generation HiBind® silica matrix offers tremendous flexibility and has provided solutions for nucleic acid isolation from a spectrum of sources. Using the spin column format, our E-Z Nucleic Acid (E.Z.N.A.®) system takes advantage of the HiBind® silica membrane and allows for the purification and recovery of DNA and RNA from tissues, cultured cells, gels, and solutions. Our Mag-Bind® technology provides a flexible and reliable method for isolating nucleic acids using magnetic beads. Our magnetic beads are customized to each application, offering optimal magnetization response time, setting, and binding capacity. Our diverse products range from RNA purification from plants to DNA extraction from dried blood spots.
Omega Bio-tek’s headquarters are located in Norcross, Georgia, about 25 miles outside of downtown Atlanta. We own and operate a 38,000 ft2 facility. We offer products for manual and automated processing and we support our customers by having Hamilton Microlab® STAR™, Beckman Coulter Biomek® FX, and Thermo KingFisher® instruments in house. In addition to offering nucleic acid purification products, we also offer next-generation sequencing services utilizing Illumina platforms.
Quality is key to operations at Omega Bio-tek. We are ISO 9001:2008 certified and we ensure that products are properly assembled, tested, recorded, stored, and shipped. We perform rigorous quality checks of our products and thoroughly train our employees to ensure compliance. We also have several quality control steps within our processes to deliver the best possible product. We firmly believe that quality in equals quality out.
