Gene synthesis requires isolation of a target construct from various contaminating truncation products. Agarose gel size selection can accurately isolate the target construct, which can then be cloned for future amplification. Complete automation of the recovery of a target construct can improve the yield of positive clones and minimize the cost of gene synthesis simultaneously.
Large gene synthesis companies require the ability to complete gene synthesis at a high volume to meet demand. Coastal Genomics endeavours to prove the reliability of automated construct recovery can be completed at a rate that works for these groups.
