The PowerBiofilm® DNA Isolation Kit pairs a brand-new bead beating and cell lysis technology with our patented Inhibitor Removal Technology® (IRT) for increased yields of inhibitor free DNA from all types of biofilms, including microbial mats.
The PowerBiofilm® DNA Isolation Kits from MO BIO Laboratories, Inc., have been specifically designed to overcome inefficient cell lysis. The key to the success of these kits is our new bead tube formulation that combines brand-new chemical and mechanical lysis in tough tubes. Additionally, these tubes allow flexibility in the bead beating method (vortex or bead beater). Next, we’ve paired this with our Inhibitor Removal Technology® (IRT) to remove the concentrated inhibitors (such as humic acid, metals, salts and pesticides) typically present in biofilms.

Robust PCR results from low DNA yielding stream epilithic biofilms
DNA was extracted with PowerBiofilm® DNA Isolation Kit from stream epilithic biofilms. Stream pebbles were subjected to sonication to remove biofilm, pelleted with centrifugation then resuspended in Buffer BF1 and transferred to the bead tube.
