MO BIO Laboratories, Inc. DNA Isolation Products Used to Analyze Microbes Present in Deepwater Horizon Oil Plume
CARLSBAD, Calif., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- MO BIO Laboratories, Inc., the leader in soil, water and microbial nucleic acid purification, announced today that the company's DNA isolation products were used to analyze DNA from microbes sampled from the oil plume created by the Deepwater Horizon explosion. The study published this week in the journal Science, examined the prevalence of hydrocarbon degrading genes in microbial populations at sites with varying concentrations of oil contaminants. Products from MO BIO Laboratories were used in collecting microbial samples, and in producing high quality inhibitor free DNA suitable for genetic analysis. Obtaining quality DNA from complex environmental samples is a rate limiting factor in studying oil containing samples and MO BIO Laboratories' Inhibitor Removal Technology® was key to overcoming this problem. MO BIO Laboratories continues to support the microbial ecology community in analyzing samples collected from the oil spill area in the Gulf, with products and protocols optimized for complex microbial samples.
