DNA/RNA extraction from pathogens .
The MagSi-NA and MagSi-DX Pathogens kit provide nucleic acids with high purity and yield for qPCR-based or other enzymatic pathogen detection methods.
The MagSi-NA and MagSi-DX Pathogens Kits can be used to obtain DNA and RNA from a wide variety of sample materials, including serum, plasma, oropharyngeal swabs, nasopharyngeal swabs, and respiratory samples.
Hard Facts .
For manual and automated purification of RNA for the diagnosis of human samples (respiratory swabs, saliva), the CE-IVD certified MagSi-DX Pathogen Kit is recommended. The purified RNA is suitable for all common methods for the detection of viral SARS-CoV-2 RNA, especially RT-qPCR and sequencing.

Manual and automated purification of RNA for virus detection by PCR, qPCR and LAMP.
The MagSi-NA or CE-IVD certified MagSi-DX Pathogen Kit allow low-cost extraction of DNA and RNA from a variety of sample materials: serum, plasma, oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal swabs or other respiratory samples. The isolated nucleic acids can be used for qPCR or other common pathogen detection methods.

MagSi-DX Pathogen / MagSi-NA Pathogen .
Simple workflow, fast and cost-effective .
The purification of RNA and DNA using MagSi beads is very simple and fast.
The protocol consists of only four steps: lysis, NA binding, washing, eluting.
The lysed sample material is mixed with the Magnetic Beads. The nucleic acids bind to the beads, which can be easily separated and washed using a magnet. In the final step, the bound DNA is released from the beads again using the elution buffer.
The MagSi-NA and the MagSi-DX Pathogen Kit can be used with Kingfisher™, PurePrep™, Hamilton® and TECAN® systems, among others.
