QIAamp PowerFecal Pro DNA Kit
For the isolation of microbial DNA from stool and gut samples
Extracting microbial DNA from stool and gut samples can be challenging. Researchers will isolate higher yields of pure microbial DNA from stool and gut samples more efficiently with our new QIAamp PowerFecal Pro DNA Kit.
The QIAamp Power Fecal Pro DNA Kit builds and improves on our original PowerFecal technology utilizing a novel bead tube and optimized chemistry for more efficient lysis of bacteria and fungi. Inhibitor removal has been streamlined, allowing researchers to eliminate challenging inhibitors from stool and gut samples faster. This results in total DNA that reveals higher alpha diversity through observed operational taxonomic units (OTUs) in downstream testing.
Isolation of DNA using the QIAamp PowerFecal Pro DNA Kit can be automated on the QIAcube Connect.
The QIAamp PowerFecal Pro DNA Kit is intended for molecular biology applications. This product is not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
Using improved technologies, the new QIAamp PowerFecal Pro Kit allows researchers to obtain higher yields of DNA from stool and gut samples compared with alternative methods (See: 'Higher yields of DNA with the QIAamp PowerFecal Pro DNA Kit.').
The streamlined Inhibitor Removal Technology® (IRT) used by the new QIAamp PowerFecal Pro DNA Kit is highly efficient at removing inhibitors while still decreasing sample processing time. The QIAamp PowerFecal Pro DNA Kits also showed the highest A260/A280 ratios, near 1.8, of any other commercially available kit, indicating the absence of inhibitors. Less variability was also observed between the samples processed with QIAamp PowerFecal Pro DNA Kits (See: ‘Highly pure DNA isolated using the new QIAamp PowerFecal Pro DNA Kit.’). Researchers using the QIAamp PowerFecal Pro DNA Kit can identify a greater bacterial diversity with increased OTUs from stool samples compared with the first-generation QIAamp PowerFecal Kit and other commercially available kits (See: ‘Greater total number of bacterial OTUs isolated with the new QIAamp PowerFecal Pro DNA Kit.’).
Samples processed with the QIAamp PowerFecal Pro DNA Kit are added to a bead beating tube. Rapid and thorough
