PowerMag Blood DNA/RNA Isolation Kit

Mo Bio Laboratories has launched the PowerMag Blood DNA/RNA Isolation Kit.

The new kit is designed for automated purification of nucleic acids from blood samples using the Thermo Fisher Scientific KingFisher automated processing system and other similar automation platforms. The kits work with all types of blood samples, including fresh and frozen whole blood, buffy coat, plasma, and stabilized blood. They also feature the company's ClearMag magnetic particle technology, which captures DNA and RNA without binding common blood-derived PCR inhibitors, Mo Bio said.
