- New PowerViral™ Environmental RNA/DNA Isolation Kit for the Extraction of Viral and Bacterial Nucleic Acids
Product News: New PowerViral™ Environmental RNA/DNA Isolation Kit for the Extraction of Viral and Bacterial Nucleic AcidsThe new PowerViral™ Environmental RNA/DNA Isolation Kit is the latest addition to the MO BIO range of molecular biology tools, distributed exclusively in the UK by Cambio.
MO BIO’s kits specialize in nucleic acid extraction from difficult samples, and the new kit is no exception. It extracts viral and bacterial DNA and RNA from samples such as waste water, stool, biosolids and gut material. The patented Inhibitor Removal Technology® (IRT) in the kit allows users to produce pure nucleic acids for use in downstream applications including PCR, cDNA synthesis and more. IRT works by eliminating inhibitory substances, such as undigested plant material in the gut or heme compounds from lysed red blood cells, and produces high yields of exceptionally pure product.
PowerViral™ Environmental RNA/DNA Isolation Kits have the option of a bead beating protocol. Glass bead tubes, along with a strong chemical lysis buffer, provide optimal lysis of soil samples and bacterial cells The kits are also available without bead tubes for isolating viral nucleic acids from liquid samples, so researchers can extract using chemical lysis alone.
