For the isolation of high quality total RNA from biofilm samples
The RNeasy PowerBiofilm Kit is intended for molecular biology applications. This product is not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.

Product Details

Overcome inefficient cell lysis with the RNeasy PowerBiofilm Kit. Mechanical and chemical lysis are combined with Inhibitor Removal Technology to isolate pure RNA free from inhibitors typical of biofilms, including humic acid, metals, salts and pesticides. The resulting RNA is then ready for further analysis with downstream applications. Want to try this solution for the first time? Request a quote for a trial kit.

The RNeasy PowerBiofilm Kit was formerly sold by MO BIO as PowerBiofilm RNA Isolation Kit (50).
