The TaqMan Vaginal Microbiota Extraction Control contains yeast-transformed cells in lyophilized pellets. These cells contain a linearized multi-target plasmid that includes amplicons for each of the qualified TaqMan Vaginal Microbiota assays, as well as control prokaryotic 16S rRNA and human RNase P RPPH1 gene sequences. The TaqMan Vaginal Microbiota Extraction Control can be used as a convenient training tool to learn and practice the protocol for isolating DNA from vaginal samples.
