M1 Sample Prep Cartridge Kits

Extract and purify nucleic acids from nearly any sample type in only 1 to 2 minutes using a filtration-based method in which nucleic acids selectively bind to the silica membrane inside our proprietary sample prep columns. Subsequent washes through a sequence of specially formulated buffers yield purified DNA or RNA upon elution.

No Lab Equipment Necessary

No refrigerator, heat block, vortexer, centrifuge, pipettes, or even electricity necessary. 

Shelf-Stable for Field Use

All components of the cartridge kit are shelf-stable for 1 year when stored in a dry place, at room temperature (15-30°C / 59-86°F).

1-2 Minute Protocol

Complete DNA or RNA extraction and purification in minutes without incubation - get consistent, reproducible results in 30-60 minutes when combined with our mobile qPCR thermocyclers.


We work in the field regularly and this cartridge doesn't require any extra lab equipment, refrigeration, or cold chain. This is critical for us. The single-use, disposables minimize contamination which definitely adds to the benefits we've experienced thus far.
