DNeasy PowerFood Microbial Kit

For the isolation of inhibitor-free DNA from a variety of cultured foods

  • Simplified isolation of purified DNA from a variety of food types, pathogens, yeasts and fungi
  • Efficient removal of PCR inhibitors including lipids and polysaccharides
  • High-quality, ready-to-use DNA for downstream applications
  • Streamlined protocol can isolate DNA from food cultures or uncultured food
Isolating high-quality genomic DNA from tough, food cultured microorganisms is easy with the DNeasy PowerFood Microbial Kit. As a complete kit, no additional reagents and enzymes are needed to process vital samples. The Inhibitor Removal Technology incorporated into the kit removes PCR-inhibiting compounds associated with food cultures, including lipids and polysaccharides. Processed DNA is ready for use in downstream applications including qPCR and genotyping.

The DNeasy PowerFood Microbial Kit has been validated with a wide range of food products including meats, dairy products, fruits, vegetables and juices, isolating PCR inhibitor free DNA from pathogens including Clostridium difficile, Clostridium perfringens, Enterococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli, Lactobacillus sp., Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella enterica.

The DNeasy PowerFood Microbial Kit is available with either 0.5 ml bead tubes containing 0.15 mm garnet beads (21000-100) or with 2 ml bead tubes containing 0.15 mm garnet beads (21000-100-MON). The 0.5 ml bead tubes are best for DNA isolation from food cultures, while the 2 ml bead tubes work best for isolation of DNA from uncultured food.

The DNeasy PowerFood Microbial Kit was previously sold by MO BIO as the PowerFood Microbial DNA Kit.
