High-quality DNA/RNA from Microorganisms in Environmental Samples

Thorold, ON, – Norgen Biotek Corp., an innovative Canadian biotechnology company focusing primarily on advancing powerful tools for nucleic acids and protein purification, today announced the launch of two new kits for the isolation of nucleic acids from environmental samples, the Soil DNA Isolation Kit and the Water RNA/DNA Purification Kit.  These kits are ideal for environmental microbiological studies, and provide high quality, inhibitor-free RNA and/or DNA that can be used in various downstream applications such as PCR.

The Soil DNA Isolation Kit allows for the isolation of genomic DNA from various microorganisms found in all types of soil samples, including soil with high humic acid content such as compost and manure.  The purified DNA is of the highest quality and is fully compatible with downstream PCR applications, as humic substances and other PCR inhibitors are removed during the isolation.  Norgen’s Water RNA/DNA Purification Kit is designed for the isolation of genomic DNA and total RNA from the microorganisms found in water.  The organic-free extracted RNA and DNA are of the highest quality, highly concentrated and free from PCR inhibitors.
“Our new kits for the isolation of DNA and RNA from environmental microorganisms represent an exciting addition to our line of high quality products.  We listened to our customers’ feedback that they routinely encounter high levels of PCR inhibitors in nucleic acids isolated from environmental samples.   I am very pleased that our scientists rose to the challenge and designed high quality kits that purify nucleic acids free of PCR inhibitors.  We are confident that microbiologists will be satisfied with the quality and quantity of DNA isolated from soil and water samples with these kits and will get meaningful PCR amplification results. We have found that these kits out-perform the leading environmental kits on the market.”  said Dr. Haj-Ahmad, President  & CEO of Norgen Biotek.
