Microbiome samples can be very precious. Yet, purified nucleic acids are often contaminated with inhibitory substances, e.g., heme in stool, humic acids in soil or polysaccharides in plants. These inhibitors are a potential source of analytical interference. QIAcube Connect provides maximum standardization in microbiome sample preparation through the highest degree of automation, including the processing of the patented Inhibitor Removal Technology (IRT). Join our webinar and experience QIAcube Connect in combination with our comprehensive microbiome nucleic acid isolation kits, preparing high-quality samples from challenging sources for reliable downstream analysis.
