The BOMB platform is both modular and universal.

Purification of nucleic acid from a wide variety of biological and synthetic input sources (left-hand panel) can be performed using the BOMB platform. Following initial extraction using BOMB beads (central bead icon), the resulting nucleic acids, DNA, RNA, or TNA, can be further manipulated and repurified using BOMB protocols and/or passed to final analysis methods or reintroduced back into a biological system. BOMB, Bio-On-Magnetic-Beads; NGS, next-generation sequencing; qPCR, quantitative polymerase chain reaction; TNA, total nucleic acid.
