DNeasy PowerMax Soil Kit

DNeasy PowerMax Soil Kit

For the isolation of microbial DNA from large quantities of soil with low microbial load

  • Inhibitor Removal Technology eliminates humic substances and PCR inhibitors for DNA that is ready to use in PCR, qPCR and next generation sequencing
  • Rapid protocol enables isolation of high quality, pure DNA from up to 10 g soil in just 30 minutes
  • Larger prep size enables recovery of DNA even from low biomass samples

The DNeasy PowerMax Soil Kit is designed for processing large quantities of any soil or environmental sample with high or low microbial load. Based on reagents from the DNeasy PowerSoil Kit, the DNeasy PowerMax Soil Kit uses novel, patented Inhibitor Removal Technology to remove PCR inhibiting compounds, including humic substances, and the brown color often associated with soil DNA. The kit is ideal for environmental samples that contain high humic substance content, including compost, sediment and manure. PCR analysis has been used to amplify DNA purified from microorganisms including Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria (e.g. Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus anthracis), fungi (e.g. yeasts, molds), algae and actinomycetes (e.g. Streptomyces).

The DNeasy PowerMax Soil DNA Kit increases your ability to study microbial diversity in even the most difficult sample types, such as those which contain high humic levels and low microbial load. Our 50 ml Vortex Adapter for cell lysis and a centrifuge capable of spinning 50 ml tubes are required for maximum performance. DNA is ready to use in PCR, qPCR, Sanger sequencing or NGS.

DNeasy PowerMax Soil Kit was formally sold by MO BIO as PowerMax Soil DNA Isolation Kit.
