QIAamp DNA Stool Mini Kit

For isolation of DNA from stool
  • Rapid isolation of high-quality, ready-to-use DNA
  • No organic extraction or alcohol precipitation
  • Consistent, high yields
  • Complete removal of contaminants and inhibitors

The QIAamp DNA Stool Mini Kit provides silica membrane-based purification of up to 30 μg genomic, bacterial, viral, and parasite DNA from fresh or frozen human stool or other sample types with high concentrations of PCR inhibitors. The combined action of InhibitEX, a unique adsorption resin, and an optimized buffer leads to removal of PCR inhibitors. The convenient QIAamp spin-column procedure provides purification in only 50 minutes. Purification of DNA using the QIAamp DNA Stool Mini Kit can be automated on the QIAcube.

The QIAamp® DNA Stool Mini Kit (50) (cat. no. 51504) and the InhibitEX Tablets (100) (cat. no. 19590) are no longer manufactured. Instead, we offer you the QIAamp Fast DNA Stool Mini Kit (50) (cat. no. 51604) as an alternative product.
