MP Biomedicals launches in EMEA a new addition to its family of FastPrep extraction kits: the MagBeads FastDNA Kit for Feces and the MagBeads FastDNA Kit for Soil.


The Molecular Biology group of MP Biomedicals having more than twenty years of experience in the research and development of sample preparation and nucleic acid purification solutions is pleased to announce the release of two new kits designed for the isolation of pure DNA from fecal, soil, and other environmental samples specially dedicated to microbiome research applications.

The complex content of microbiome specimens can hinder scientists from getting sufficient yield and purity of DNA. With that in mind, MP Biomedicals has focused on optimizing both the sample lysis and the downstream DNA isolation steps. The goal of this new product development was also to offer a solution suited for high-throughput, automated purification of sequencing-grade DNA.

MagBeads FastDNA Kit for Feces and MagBeads FastDNA Kit for Soil allow high yield and quick isolation of genomic DNA from fecal, soil, and various other environmental samples. They are using magnetic beads technology with high binding capacity and selectivity for genomic DNA to isolate nucleic acids. Highlights include the high yield and purity of DNA from various types of specimens. Using the magnetic bead procedure, turnover time is less than 60 min. Furthermore, the kit can be adapted to automated nucleic acid extraction instruments for high throughput processing.

The launch of the MagBeads FastDNA Kit for Feces and MagBeads FastDNA Kit for Soil is part of a new range of purification kits using a unique high-binding magnetic bead technology to advance the rapidly expanding portfolio of highly specialized molecular biology reagents from MP Biomedicals. The company remains committed to serving life science and diagnostics customers to bring innovation and quality products to the research lab, clinical diagnostic laboratories, and biotechnology companies.
