The innuPREP Food DNA Kit-IPC16 is a simple, safe, automated tool for extracting DNA from a variety of food samples. Thanks to prefilled, sealed Reagent Strips/Plates, using InnuPure® C16 eliminates the need for time-consuming prep steps. Once the starting material has been homogenized (using a homogenizer such as the SpeedMill PLUS) and external lysis is complete, the InnuPure® C16 automated extraction system carries out all of the remaining steps. Based on patented DC technology and the magnetic particle separation principle, the system utilizes a stringent lysis buffer and optimized binding buffer to achieve large yields of high-quality nucleic acids. The isolated DNA contains virtually no inhibitors and is immediately available for subsequent applications (such as qPCR).
