Qiagen QiaSymphony PowerFecal Pro DNA Kit
Qiagen has launched the QiaSymphony PowerFecal Pro DNA Kit for the isolation of microbial genomic DNA from stool and soil using the QiaSymphony automation platform. The new kit enables automated, time-saving, standardized extraction of inhibitor-free DNA from stool and soil samples for metagenomic analysis, and is designed for 192 samples with continuous loading of 24-sample batches. Qiagen said that its new PowerBead Pro tubes are included in the kit for homogenization. The beads and optimized chemistry enable more efficient lysis of bacteria and fungi.
