For genomic studies, the quality of isolated nucleic acid sample is critical in obtaining data that are accurate and informative. With clinical material it is often imperative to obtain a homogenous sample or isolate individual cells. The stability and standard of final nucleic acid sample isolated are as much consequences of storage and handling of starting material as they are of capture, extraction, or purification procedures. In addition, the volume of information being made available through sequencing efforts and advances in microarray and other technologies has amplified the need for rapid, high-standard, sample manipulation in conjunction with further miniaturization and automation of such processes.
