The MagSi-NA pathogens kit from Amsbio, Abingdon, UK, enables easy extraction of DNA and RNA from oropharyngeal/nasopharyngeal swabs, plasma, serum, and any other respiratory samples for pathogen detection. The kit is particularly suitable for total nucleic acid extraction for detecting SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes covid-19.

The kit’s simple protocol and ready-to-use-reagents make it easy to scale to small-, medium-, and high-throughput automation, yielding highly pure nucleic acid in small elution volumes.

The MagSi-NA pathogens kit utilizes magnetic beads to ensure a consistently high yield. The company’s proprietary MagSi-PA VII magnetic beads are optimized for fast separation even from viscous sample lysates.
