Mo Bio Laboratories PowerMag DNA Clean-Up Kit

Mo Bio Laboratories has launched the PowerMag DNA Clean-Up Kit for automated, hands-free clean-up of DNA samples that require a secondary purification for removal of PCR inhibitors.

The kit features Mo Bio's ClearMag magnetic bead technology and Inhibitor Removal Technology for complete removal of PCR inhibitors, including humic acids, fulvic acids, polysaccharides, polyphenolics, heme, lipids, and dyes, thus reducing the risk of false negatives and ensuring optimal results in PCR, qPCR and next generation sequencing, Mo Bio said.

The kit is optimized for use with the Thermo Scientific KingFisher Flex and KingFisher Duo platforms, but can be adapted for use with any open platform automated liquid handling system.
