As the genome research continues to grow and genomic information avalanches at the speed of light, biological research labs are facing continuous effort to redefine the scale and scope of their research. Large-scale research applications such as high-throughput sequencing and cDNA microarrays are becoming standard tools in most labs, demanding an increasing ability to generate and handle a large amount of highly purified DNA templates (1). As a result, developing protocols that address the rising needs in sample tracking, robotic compatibility, and efficient integration has become a priority.
