Product Details

Finding bacterial DNA in cultured blood, fecal and cervical swabs is fast and efficient with the QIAamp BiOstic Bacteremia DNA Kit. Remove inhibitors common in blood, swabs and culture medium using QIAGEN’s Inhibitor Removal Technology. Combined with mechanical bead beating lysis, the QIAamp BiOstic Bacteremia DNA Kit isolates pure genomic DNA that is free of inhibitors, such as charcoal used for antibiotic removal, that make bacterial genotyping of cultured blood difficult. Resulting DNA is ready to use in bacterial genotyping assays including next-generation sequencing, Sanger sequencing, Bacterial Barcodes rep-PCR, qPCR assays and multiplex PCR.

The QIAamp BiOstic Bacteremia DNA Kit was previously sold by MO BIO as the BiOstic Bacteremia DNA Kit.

FAQ

Are there important considerations for plasma generation and urine handling?

It is strongly advised to follow the recommendations for preparing sample material provided in the corresponding Protocol Sheet to ensure reliable results.

Plasma: It is recommended to perform plasma separation immediately after blood collection when using EDTA or citrate as anticoagulant to prevent the release of genomic DNA into the plasma fraction.

Urine: Because circulating cell-free DNA in non-stabilized urine samples is rapidly degraded after sample collection due to high nuclease activity, eluates may contain no DNA or exhibit low DNA concentration. Therefore, it is recommended to stabilize urine samples. Even when using stabilized urine, it is recommended to perform a centrifugation step immediately after stabilization to prevent the release of genomic DNA from cells. Alternatively, non-stabilized urine samples can be processed immediately after collection and centrifugation using ATL-pretreatment and automated DNA extraction as described in the corresponding Protocol Sheet.
