37 % of all cell culture supernatants and almost all confluent cell culture supernatants, inhibit PCR. Proficiency studies have demonstrated the importance of further DNA extraction for a sensitive PCR results, even for unremarkable sample materials.

The Venor®GeM Sample Preparation Kit provides samples highly compatible with Minerva Biolabs Venor®GeM Mycoplasma PCR kits. A special protocol allows the purification of the samples in order to meet the high demands of the EP 2.6.7 and JP G3. The sample DNA is eluted in a volume of 60 µl in a high concentration and purity for maximum sensitivity of the PCR. The kit works with DNA extraction columns which are directly suitable for the treatment of up to 200 µl of your sample.

Recommended Use

For DNA extraction from:

  • Cell culture supernatants including cells and cell debris
  • ATMPs
  • Samples with polymers and glycerin (e.g. cryo conservation media)
  • Several different cell culture media
  • Protein solutions, incl. antibodies and enzymes
