The PowerWater® RNA Isolation Kit is the first kit specifically designed to isolate RNA from microbes present in environmental water samples including bacteria (both gram + and gram -), fungi and algae. This kit includes our novel PowerWater® bead tubes for optimal lysis and our patented Inhibitor Removal Technology® (IRT) for better sensitivity in RT-PCR and yields RNA of high quality and purity. With IRT, even water containing heavy amounts of contaminants can be processed to provide high quality RNA. The kit can isolate RNA from common filter membrane types (sold separately) with a rapid 40 minute protocol.
