Automated DNA extraction from complex soil and microbial samples.

PowerMag™ DNA isolation kits, available exclusively in the UK from Cambio, are the ultimate tool in isolating pure DNA from complex soil and microbial sample matrices.

Produced by MoBio, PowerMag™ kits are designed to work seamlessly with Kingfisher® or epMotion® automated processing systems for rapid and hands-free applications.

Users are provided with a complete solution for effectively and efficiently isolating high-quality, inhibitor-free DNA, suitable for use in downstream processes such as PCR and next generation sequencing, and are supported throughout by Cambio’s dedicated customer service.

Magnetic bead-based technologies are often the first choice for automated DNA isolation, but they are not without limitations.

When using traditional technologies to extract DNA from soil samples there is often surface binding to the beads. This allows for the adsorption of organic inhibitors.

The PowerMag™ Soil DNA isolation kit contains ClearMag™ technology, which inhibits this binding and facilitates the isolation of pure DNA.

When it comes to Microbial DNA extraction, the PowerMag™ Microbial DNA isolation kit includes SwiftMag™ technology.

By eliminating the need for chaotropic salts while binding nucleic acids to beads, even purer DNA can be captured in comparison to other methods.

All the PowerMag™ DNA isolation kits are optimized for use with the most difficult and complex samples, from soil and stool to food cultures and a variety of swabs.

The inclusion of MoBio’s Inhibitor Removal Technology® (IRT) removes PCR-inhibiting compounds such as lipids, phenolics and polysaccharides.

Users are left with high-quality, pure DNA that is ideal for use in downstream applications.
