Automated DNA extraction from soil samples
PowerMag DNA isolation kits allow users to isolate DNA for use in downstream processes such as PCR and next generation sequencing.
According to Cambio, magnetic bead-based technologies are usually 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.
By eliminating the need for chaotropic salts while binding nucleic acids to beads, even purer DNA can be captured in comparison to other methods.
- Automated isolation of high quality DNA from soil, stool and environmental samples
- Novel magnetic particle technology captures DNA without binding organic inhibitors, facilitating isolation of pure DNA
- Optimised for use with Eppendorf’s epMotion automated pipetting system
- Removes PCR-inhibiting compounds, including humic substances, phenolics and polysaccharides
