For isolating viral or bacterial total nucleic acids from waste water and stool samples
The AllPrep PowerViral DNA/RNA Kit is intended for molecular biology applications. This product is not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.

Product Details

The AllPrep PowerViral DNA/RNA Kit is designed for fast and easy purification of viral and bacterial total nucleic acids even from samples high in PCR inhibitors; including waste water, stool, biosolids and gut material. Inhibitor Removal Technology ensures complete removal of inhibitory substances often contained in these materials, such as undigested plant material in the gut or heme compounds from lysed red blood cells that are abundant in stool. The result is DNA and RNA from virus and bacteria that is ready to use in the most demanding downstream applications. Nucleic acids are eluted in RNase-free water and ready to use in PCR, cDNA synthesis, RT-qPCR, RNA-seq, Sanger sequencing or next-generation sequencing. Want to try this solution for the first time?

For stool samples or samples with a solid matrix, lysis is achieved using 0.1 mm Glass Bead Tubes in combination with a strong chemical lysis buffer that ensures efficient extraction of tough microorganisms in the bead beating step. For virus extraction from water samples and samples that do not require dispersion, the bead beating step may be skipped and virus extracted through chemical lysis only.

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.
