Published: Jun 07, 2012

CARLSBAD, Calif., June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MO BIO Laboratories, Inc., the leader in soil, water and microbial nucleic acid purification, announces the launch of the PowerMag Soil and Microbial DNA Isolation Kits, for automated purification of DNA from soil, stool, microbial and food cultures using the epMotion® and KingFisher® automated processing systems.


MO BIO's novel MagnaClear technology, included in the PowerMag Soil DNA Isolation Kit, enables automated purification of DNA from soil, stool and environmental samples without surface binding to the beads, eliminating the adsorption of organic inhibitors that is typical of other magnetic bead technologies, and facilitating isolation of pure DNA. The PowerMag Microbial DNA Isolation Kit contains unique MagnaSwift technology, developed for rapid, automated purification of inhibitor-free DNA from pure microbial cultures, food cultures and swabs. The PowerMag Soil and Microbial DNA Kits are the first magnetic bead-based purification kits to incorporate patented Inhibitor Removal Technology®, which removes PCR-inhibiting compounds associated with soil, stool and food cultures, including humic substances, phenolics, lipids and polysaccharides.

The PowerMag Soil and Microbial DNA Isolation Kits are available now. For more information, visit the MO BIO website ( or call 800-606-6246.
