CARLSBAD, Calif., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- MO BIO Laboratories, Inc., the leader in soil, water and microbial nucleic acid purification, announces the launch of two innovative new products, PowerBiofilm™ DNA Isolation Kit and PowerBiofilm™ RNA Isolation Kit. The PowerBiofilm™ kits are designed to isolate high-quality DNA or RNA from virtually any type of biofilm sample, from dental plaque to microbial mats. Biofilms are a ubiquitous form of microbial life in natural, industrial and hospital settings with far reaching impacts from infectious disease to bioremediation. As research on the unique characteristics of biofilms increases, PowerBiofilm™ kits are expected to become valuable tools for biofilm microbial community analysis and metagenomics.
The PowerBiofilm™ DNA and RNA Isolation kits are the first commercial kits designed to isolate nucleic acids from the wide range of biofilm samples. These kits include a brand new bead tube mix which combines both mechanical and chemical cell lysis for optimal penetration of polymeric substances commonly found in biofilms. The kits also contain our patented Inhibitor Removal Technology® (IRT) for better sensitivity in PCR, RT-PCR or sequencing and it yields nucleic acids of high quality and purity. With IRT, even biofilms containing heavy amounts of contaminants can be processed to provide inhibitor-free DNA and RNA.
The PowerBiofilm™ DNA and RNA Isolation Kits are available now. For more information visit the MO BIO website (www.mobio.com/biofilm) or call 800-606-6246 to order.
MO BIO Laboratories, Inc. (www.mobio.com) has developed innovative tools for researchers in Molecular Biology since 1993. A global leader in solutions for soil and microbial nucleic acid purification, MO BIO's Power® kits contain patented Inhibitor Removal Technology® for removal of PCR inhibiting substances during the nucleic acid purification procedure. For samples that do not require inhibitor removal, MO BIO's UltraClean® line includes optimized products for DNA and RNA isolation from a variety of sample types. Also for clinical samples, the BiOstic™ kits provide solutions for higher yields and purity of nucleic acids. At MO BIO Laboratories, Inc., our focus is quality products that work, save time and function for all sample types, not just the easy ones. It is MO BIO's aim to make researchers' working lives more productive and efficient, creating time to focus on what is critical, not just in work, but in life.
