UCP PCR Kits are ideally suited for procedures demanding high purity and accuracy, such as microbial testing, microbiome/metagenome workflows, quality control and other quantitative nucleic acid analyses. The kit offers high efficiency particularly in microbial analysis workflows such as quantification of microbial DNA versus host DNA, prior to NGS library preparation from swabs or body fluids. It is also highly recommended for detection and quantification of contaminating or residual DNA, such as bacterial, fungal or any host DNA in quality control procedures or biological production processes. The kit can be used on any common real-time cyclers.
For microbiome analysis, QIAGEN offers a range of dedicated products including DNeasy Power Soil Pro Kits for sample extraction, UCP Multiplex and HiFidelity Kits for end-point PCR, QIAseq 16S/ITS Panels for next-generation sequencing and CLC Microbial Genomics Pro Suite software for bioinformatic analysis.
