CARLSBAD, Calif., March 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MO BIO Laboratories, Inc., the leader in soil, water and microbial nucleic acid purification, announces the launch of the PowerMicrobiome™ RNA Isolation Kit, the first kit available that is optimized for stool and gut material and provides high quality RNA for use in characterizing the human microbiome.
The PowerMicrobiome™ RNA Isolation 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® 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 next generation sequencing. PowerMicrobiome™ RNA joins MO BIO's complete line of kits for isolation of high quality RNA from soil, water, biofilm, plants, microbial cultures, mammalian tissues, and blood products.
