GENEPURE 341 Nucleic Acid Purification System, 1989.

The ‘Genepure 341’ is a nucleic acid extractor. It was used within biotechnical research during the 1980s. It separates DNA from biological samples such as blood, cell cultures, viruses and plant tissues. The extraction process can be completed in four hours. The extractor can process up to eight samples simultaneously. Machines such as this were essential in biotechnology laboratories. They were used in the genetic modification of foods, animal cloning and genetic fingerprinting.
