DNA Isolation Products


Pathogen DNA Isolation
MolYsis comprises kits for the targeted isolation of DNA from pathogenic bacteria present in clinical specimens. The MolYsis kits are used for the diagnosis of pathogens from all sorts of body liquids, including whole blood, cerebrospinal fluid, synovial aspirates, bronchoalveolar lavage and peritoneal liquid. MolYsis treatment of samples removes host DNA and inhibitors thus increasing the analytical sensitivity and specificity of PCR detection assays, in particular universal PCR/Real-Time PCR assays as supplied by Molzym, MolTaq 16S and Mastermix 16S. MTB-DNA Blood is especially dedicated to the isolation of mycobacterial DNA from up to 10 ml EDTA/citrate blood.


Molzym offers two solutions. Semi-automated processing comprises a short manual pre-treatment of blood samples to remove the human DNA followed by automated extraction and isolation of DNA from enriched microorganisms. This process is performed using the SelectNA™ instrument and the Blood Pathogen kitSelectNA™plus instrument (research-use-only) is a walk-away, fully automated system which during processing of 1 ml blood or other sterile body specimens removes human DNA, enriches pathogens and extracts the DNA. Both products are open systems allowing the use of the eluted DNA in molecular assays.
Highest sensitivity, easy use, containment, DNA-free consumables and reagents and a reduced hands-on time are the key features of SelectNA™ and SelectNA™plus enabling precise pathogen analysis directly in clinical samples.


Genomic DNA Isolation
The PrestoSpin D Mini spin column isolation kits are available for the isolation of genomic DNA from a variety of samples, including cultured bacteria, yeasts and filamentous fungi, but also cultured cells and whole blood from humans and animals. PrestoSpin D kits guarantee easy handling, low hands-on time, extremely high yields and high quality standards. The porosity of Molzym's special matrices allows the passage of even highly viscous extracts without retention and the isolation of unmet quantities of DNA.
