Our DNA/RNA extraction and purification kits enable extraction of DNA or RNA from pathogens found in food, water, blood and other sources. Each kit contains all of the necessary ingredients for DNA/RNA purification in a simple, complete and convenient format. All kits contain easy to follow protocols requiring minimal training to reduce the risk of operator error. They have been designed to purify samples for analysis with BioFire Diagnostics’ R.A.P.I.D.® and JBAIDS detection systems.

Purifying DNA or RNA

These kits allow you to purify bacteria and viruses from the same sample and include beads and reagent for mechanical lysis of spores. Each kit contains enoug material to purify up to forty or fifty samples and do not require time-consuming enrichment steps. There are nine unique protocols to extract DNA/RNA from bacteria and viruses from seventeen sample types. The protocols in this kit employ the steps described below.

Purifying DNA
  1. DNA/RNA is extracted from the sample (e.g. cells or spores) through lysis. This is achieved by physical agitation and chemical disruption of the cells with bead-beating.
  2. DNA/RNA is bound and concentrated on a filter.
  3. The DNA/RNA on the filter is washed to remove inhibitors
  4. The DNA/RNA is eluted from the filter.
