CleanNA, a Double Helix Company, is a reagent manufacturer based in Waddinxveen, The Netherlands. At CleanNA we aim to collaborate with our customers to transform their specific needs into tailored solutions using our experience and scientific knowledge about magnetic bead based nucleic acid isolations and automation solutions. Our vision is that any scientist faced with a challenging and time-consuming nucleic acid isolation has access to a complete, magnetic beads based, solution that meets their needs in quality and yield while significantly reducing their hands-on time.

At CleanNA we manufacture purification and extraction reagents that can isolate and purify DNA and RNA from a wide variety of samples (mammal, plant, pathogen, in vitro) which is suitable for all demanding downstream applications (NGS, CRISPR, qPCR).

Our company works on the basis of a strict quality assurance for a constant output of high-quality products by controlling and standardizing our production processes. All products are manufactured according to predetermined and validated protocols in the Quality Management System (QMS), which is EN-ISO 13485 certified. We regularly audit the suppliers of our raw materials and subject our products to rigorous quality controls to ensure a stable output. These processes are controlled by our quality officer.

CleanNA was initiated in 2010 within GC biotech, a distributor of laboratory equipment and reagents with a focus on providing automation solutions. Based on years of experience with the sales, automation and support of magnetic beads based solutions our scientists developed our own proprietary product line that fulfills the need for an affordable nucleic acid purification. As of 2019 CleanNA was span-off into a separate entity within the Double Helix Group. Nowadays, with this background combined with the feedback from the market and extensive scientific knowledge of our people we aim to be at the forefront of innovative solutions for niche markets that are involved in the isolation of nucleic acids from unique samples that provide specific challenges. Here CleanNA will continue to transform the knowledge within the group into tangible solutions.


At CleanNA we believe that science is key for improving human health. Our mission is to support life science and healthcare laboratories to accelerate scientific discovery. We do this by collaborating with scientists, offering them our extensive knowledge and expertise to create products for reliable, automated nucleic acid isolations tailored to their needs.


Our vision is to be the standard in RUO and IVD automation friendly nucleic acid isolation products.

We use CleanPCR from CleanNA … the product[s] are simple to use, the protocols are easy to follow. Price and quality are also very good. …
Rob Klompmaker, NKI

We tested the cleanNGS beads for nucleic acid purification and size selection and we obtained similar results than with competitor A beads. The cleanNGS beads allowed efficient size selection to remove primers and reagents from PCRs. We have also used them to clean up RNA in the different steps of NGS library preparations and obtained similar results than with other products and without detectable RNA degradation. In addition, we applied the cleanNGS beads for double size selection to remove at the same time genomic DNA and primers from PCR reactions, and we obtained excellent results.

Amazing results!

These beads are easy to use, and are extremely effective in our applications. The beads produce high quality results and also produce extremely reproducible work. My research would not be the same without these cost-effective and efficient beads. I also appreciate how friendly and the willingness to help that all of the sales team has at GC biotech to help provide me with what I want.

Like-for-like replacement to the large name-brand equivalent

Delivers reproducible DNA size-selection for a variety of NGS applications and can be used in with-bead applications.

Easy to use!

This product was used as part of my research project in molecular epidemiology and I was really happy with the results it produced. It made it an easy process to extract the DNA across all samples and ensured accurate sequencing data.

At our lab the magnetic bead based plant DNA purification system Clean Plant PK DNA Kit is routinely used for quick and robust gDNA isolation from various plant species. The ease of use and compatibility to our liquid handler made it one of our most preferred plant DNA extraction protocols. After implementing the CleanNGS magnetic beads in our lab routines we covered most of our plant DNA handling and purification methodologies. The CleanNGS magnetic beads substitute many of other manufacturers magnetic beads with comparable or even better results when applied for size selection and purification of our plant DNA extracts. Clean NGS products helped our lab to improve quality and throughput and substantially cut costs and hands-on-time.
