The wide diversity of plants makes it difficult to find universal and robust solutions for extracting DNA and RNA. Poor and inconsistent extraction methods can carry over secondary compounds such as phenols and carbohydrates resulting in inaccurate quantification and inhibition of downstream amplification analyses. With this challenge in mind, we developed an automated system that provides consistent DNA and RNA extraction from a variety of plant tissue samples.
