The DNA/RNA Extraction Kit is designed for rapid and effective isolation of both DNA and RNA from a variety of pathogen organisms such as bacteria and viruses.
Samples can be nasal or throat swabs, fresh or frozen plasma/blood (treated with anticoagulants excepted heparin), serum, cell-free body fluids or pathogen-infected tissue. The Kit is specifically designed to isolate high-quality nucleic acids using low elution volumes and allowing sensitive downstream analysis including QPCR and RT-PCR. The purified DNA/RNA is free of proteins and nucleases. The classic DNA+RNA Prep Kit uses lysis buffer including chaotropic salts to inactivate DNases/RNases and advanced silica-gel membrane technology for fast purification of intact DNA/RNA.
The extraction procedure is optimized to give reproducible results within 30 min.
