New kit extracts high quality DNA and RNA from complex samples.

The new PowerMag™ Microbiome RNA/DNA isolation kit is the latest addition to the MO BIO PowerMag™ range, distributed exclusively in the UK by Cambio.

Designed for the automated isolation of RNA and DNA from stool, biosolids and gut material, the kit includes patented Inhibitor Removal Technology® to remove PCR-inhibiting compounds, such as polysaccharides, heme and lipids.

When combined with the optimized lysis and bead beating technology, the PowerMag™ Microbiome kit ensures a high yield and exceptional purity of nucleic acids from even the most difficult and complex samples.

The kits available are individually optimized for use with the KingFisher® (Flex or Duo), or the Eppendorf epMotion® automated pipetting system. Both are ideal for automated, hands-free purification.

MO BIO’s ClearMag™ magnetic particle technology removes the common problem of surface binding to the beads during purification, preventing the adsorption of organic inhibitors and ensuring the extraction of pure nucleic acids.

Neither chaotropic salts nor ethanol are used in the PowerMag™ Microbiome kit, eliminating a second source of contamination and helping provide pure DNA and RNA that is ready for use in PCR, qPCR and next generation sequencing.
