MO BIO Laboratories, Inc. Launches the PowerMag® Air and Water DNA/RNA Isolation Kit
CARLSBAD, Calif., -- MO BIO Laboratories, Inc., the leader in soil, water and microbial nucleic acid purification, announces the launch of the PowerMag® Air & Water DNA/RNA Isolation Kit, for automated, hands-free purification of nucleic acids from filtered air and water samples using the Eppendorf epMotiona automated pipetting system and other similar automation platforms.
The PowerMag® Air & Water DNA/RNA Isolation Kit is the latest in the high quality nucleic acid purification tools developed using key MO BIO technologies:
-- Unique bead-based lysis for uniform representation of the nucleic acid population
-- Inhibitor Removal Technology® (IRT) for complete removal of PCR inhibitors commonly found in turbid or contaminated water (for example, humic substances, metals and petroleum) to eliminate false negatives in downstream applications such as qPCR
-- ClearMag® technology: Magnetic beads designed with a unique coating that enables hands-free purification of high yields of pure nucleic acids in a high-throughput format
The PowerMag® Air & Water DNA/RNA Isolation Kit is an extension of MO BIO's PowerWater® line of DNA and RNA isolation kits, which are the first choice of environmental agencies and public health departments for applications such as air and water quality monitoring. The kit is compatible with air and water samples collected on a variety of filter membrane types including mixed cellulose ester, polyethersulfone, polycarbonate and nylon.
The PowerMag Air & Water DNA/RNA Isolation Kit is available now. For more information, visit the MO BIO website (www.mobio.com/water-dna-isolation/powermag-air-water-dna-rna-isolation-kit-optimized-for-epmotion.html) or call 800-606-6246.
