Description

The PureLink® Viral RNA/DNA Mini Kit provides a rapid and efficient method to simultaneously purify viral RNA/DNA from fresh or frozen cell-free biological fluids (plasma, serum, cerebrospinal fluid) and cell culture supernatants. The PureLink® Viral Mini Kit is specifically designed to isolate high-quality viral nucleic acids from a variety of RNA and DNA viruses within 45 minutes using low elution volumes that allow sensitive downstream analysis. The purified viral RNA/DNA is devoid of proteins and nucleases, and is suitable for use in downstream applications that allow viral detection and genotyping. The PureLink® Viral RNA/DNA Mini Kit provides the following advantages:

• Rapid and efficient purification of high-quality viral nucleic acid using spin column–based centrifugation with no sample cross-contamination
• Specifically designed to purify viral RNA and DNA from ≤500 µL cell-free samples within 45 min
• Ability to elute viral nucleic acids in low elution volumes of 10–50 µL to allow sensitive downstream analysis
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
