The PowerWater® DNA Isolation Kit is our next generation kit for extraction of genomic DNA from a variety of filtered water samples, and uses our novel patented Inhibitor Removal Technology® (IRT). With IRT, even water containing heavy amounts of contaminants can be processed to provide DNA of high quality and yield. The kit can isolate DNA from common filter membrane types, including 0.45 µm and 0.22 µm filter funnels (sold separately). This kit differs from our UltraClean® Water DNA Isolation Kit by allowing for microcentrifuge processing of 47 mm sized water filters using a novel bead tube with optimized bead mix, a streamlined lysis procedure that reduces processing volumes, and incorporation of our IRT technology. DNA is ready to use in a final 100 µl volume.
