The NucleoMag Pathogen kit allows the purification of viral RNA and DNA and microbial DNA using magnetic beads. The kit is designed for common clinical samples, such as whole blood, serum or plasma, feces, tissue, or swabs. After a sample-specific pre-lysis procedure, 200 µl of liquid or homogenized sample is used in the purification procedure.
The NucleoMag product family is based on magnetic bead technology. Nucleic acids are bound to the magnetic beads under chaotropic salt conditions, contaminants are washed away with ethanolic wash buffers, and pure RNA and DNA can be eluted from the beads using elution buffer.
The NucleoMag technology can easily be adapted to common liquid handling instruments. It can be used either with static pin separators (e.g., NucleoMag SEP) or magnetic separators integrated into robotic workstations.
