Application Note: Selective Enrichment of Bacterial and Fungal DNA
22 November 2018
MolYsis™ is a tool for the removal of human DNA and enrichment of bacteria and fungi from liquid samples. Technically, in a short series of steps, MolYsis™ effects the selective lysis of blood cells and the quantitative degradation (>99%) of released human DNA. After enrichment from the lysate by centrifugation, microorganisms are treated with a reagent degrading cell walls of Grampositive and Gram-negative bacteria and fungi. The broad range lysis potential has been shown in clinical evaluations, including over 200 genera of bacteria (86 Grampositives, 120 Gram-negatives) and 65 genera of fungi.
