High-throughput, high-quality DNA and RNA purification for detection of multiple pathogens
Pathogen testing protocols (e.g. for COVID-19, influenza or easy-to-lyse bacterial pathogens) require fast, reliable, high-yield, high-quality and easily automatable sample preparation methods.
Our sbeadex™ Pathogen Nucleic Acid Purification Kits with their optimised chemistry meet these requirements and deliver excellent yields of highly purified nucleic acids from various sample material that can be used in many downstream applications such as PCR/qPCR, RT-PCR/qRT-PCR, and NGS. The purification procedure can be fully automated and is compatible with many robotic platforms.
The sbeadex Pathogen Nucleic Acid Purification Kit is a simple renaming of our proven sbeadex Viral RNA Purification Kit to reflect its continuously expanding usability to purify good yields of high-quality DNA and RNA from a variety of viral, bacterial and yeast pathogens.
Please see Table 1 for a list of viral, bacterial and yeast pathogens and compatible matrices that have been tested so far.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
- Qualified protocol for viral and bacterial nucleic acid purification
- Compatible with most popular robotic platforms, including the Kingfisher™ and our high-throughput oKtopure™ instrument
- Fast – both short (25 min) and standard (45 min) protocols available
- High-throughput batch sizes (up to 10,000 purifications)
- No organic extraction, alcohol precipitation or centrifugation steps
- Water-based wash buffers reduce solvent carryover, resulting in absence of PCR inhibitors in final eluate
- High nucleic acid quality for all downstream applications including PCR/qPCR and NGS
- Ready-to-use kits with high stability (customised and bulk size kits are also available)
