Product Details

Biodensity of a soil or other environmental sample is not a problem when using the DNeasy PowerMax Soil Kit. This kit, designed for processing large sample quantities, will give researchers DNA samples free from PCR inhibiting compounds generally associated with soil DNA. Humic substances and the color from compost, manure and sediment are eliminated through Inhibitor Removal Technology. Resulting DNA is ready to use in a variety of downstream applications such as qPCR, Sanger sequencing and next-generation sequencing. Want to try this solution for the first time?
