Mag-Bind® Viral DNA/RNA 96 Kit

For high throughput total nucleic acid isolation from bodily fluids

The Mag-Bind® Viral DNA/RNA 96 Kit (cat. Nr M6246) is for fast and high throughput viral RNA and DNA isolations from numerous types of biological samples.

  • Unique Omega Bio-Tek Mag-Bind® magnetic bead technology
  • High quality viral nucleic acids obtained free of proteins, nucleases, and other impurities
  • Fully automatable and ready-to-load scripts on the KingFisher™, Tecan, and Hamilton platforms
  • Dedicated technical and application support to expedite setup and validation time
  • Versatile procedure adaptable to most automated systems and scalable up or down depending on the amount of starting sample
  • Ideal for sera, plasma, saliva samples (see user manual)
  • Compatible with NP swabs, aspirates and BAL samples (see supplementary protocol)
  • Purified nucleic acids ready for direct use in downstream applications, such as amplification or other enzymatic reactions.

50 µL of ZeptoMetrix’s NATtrol Influenza A/B Positive Control standard was spiked into 150 µL of human serum. Viral nucleic acids were extracted using Omega Bio-tek’s Mag-Bind® Viral DNA/RNA 96 Kit. Average Ct values obtained after amplification using Influenza B primers are shown above. The results indicate positive detection of Influenza B in both undiluted and 10-fold diluted purified samples. HBV virus (in quantities of 10 and 1 infectious unit[s]) was spiked into 200 µL of human serum. Viral nucleic acid was isolated with Omega Bio-tek’s Mag-Bind® Viral DNA/RNA 96 Kit and a comparable kit from Company A according to manufacturer’s recommended protocols. 5 µL of template was used for a SYBR® Green labeled qPCR reaction, which was replicated 4 times. The resulting mean Ct values are shown in the above figure. Nucleic acid was isolated from 200 µL of human whole blood with Omega Biotek’s Mag-Bind® Viral DNA/RNA 96 Kit and a kit from Company A using the manufacturer’s recommended protocols. The extractions were eluted in 100 µL. 3 concentrations of template were used as templates in a SYBR® Green labeled qPCR reaction. Each reaction was performed in quadruplicate and the mean Ct value is depicted in the above figure.
