The Quick-DNA/RNA Viral Kits provide for rapid isolation of high-quality viral nucleic acids from a wide range of biological sources. It can be used to successfully isolate from cell-free body fluids, as well as cellular suspensions. The kit has been rigorously tested and used to isolate viral nucleic acids from samples containing enteroviruses, rhinoviruses, coronaviruses, HIV, HCV, influenza A virus, flaviviruses, measles virus, parainfluenza virus and parvovirus (a ssDNA virus).
The kits employ a single buffer system that facilitates viral particle lysis and allows for subsequent DNA/RNA binding. The nucleic acids are washed and then eluted with DNase/RNase-Free Water. The eluted DNA and RNA are suitable for use in various subsequent procedures, including RT-PCR.
