RNeasy PowerMicrobiome Kit
For the isolation of total RNA from stool and gut material
- Optimized to isolate total RNA from stool, gut material, dried feces, contaminated buccal swabs and secretions
- Inhibitor Removal Technology eliminates inhibitory substances, including heme, lipids and polysaccharides, for RNA that is ready to use in RT-qPCR and RNA-seq
- Enables isolation of high quality total RNA in less than 45 minutes
The RNeasy PowerMicrobiome Kit is designed for fast and easy purification of total RNA from samples high in PCR inhibitors; including stool, gut material, dried feces, contaminated buccal swabs and secretions. Patented Inhibitor Removal Technology (IRT) ensures complete removal of inhibitory substances from digested food, heme from lysed red blood cells abundant in stool and other PCR inhibitors. The RNA isolated is high quality and ready to use in the most demanding downstream applications, including RT-qPCR and RNA-seq. Optional removal of co-isolated DNA can be performed using a simple, on-column procedure with reagents provided in the kit. The RNeasy PowerMicrobiome Kit is the only kit available that is optimized for stool and gut material and provides high quality RNA for use in characterizing the human microbiome. miRNA can also be isolated using this kit.
RNeasy PowerMicrobiome Kit was formerly sold by MO BIO as PowerMicrobiome RNA Isolation Kit.
