Efficient tick lysis and DNA isolation
The isolation of tick DNA has never been easier. The blackPREP DNA Isolation Kit was created to purify pathogen DNA from ticks, including Borrelia, Rickettsia, Anaplasma and Babesia.
The kit contains lysis tubes with optimized beads and can be used in combination with the SpeedMill bead homogenizer or other homogenizers as an efficient means of mechanically disruption of ticks without degrading the DNA.
The DNA is then isolated from the lysate in a simple, rapid spin-column prep. The binding, washing and elution steps guarantee high DNA yield and purity. Analytik Jena´s rapidSTRIPE assays can then be used in later applications as fast, uncomplicated tools for detecting tick-borne pathogens.
