Venor® GeM Sample Preparation Kit - Clean samples, ready for PCR

Minerva Biolabs

The Venor® GeM Sample Preparation Kit provides PCR templates highly compatible with Minerva Biolabs´ PCR kits.


For clinical samples the collection of nasal, pharyngeal or vaginal samples with a swab is easy and convenient. For further analysis by PCR the elution of the required DNA from swab material is of prime importance. The sample DNA must be available in a minute volume to yield high DNA concentrations and a maximum sensitivity, shall be free of PCR inhibitors and fit the reaction conditions of the subsequent PCR. The kit routinely contains such an optimized swab wash buffer.


For Chlamydia trachomatis PCR the extraction of DNA from the optimal first flush of urine (<8 ml) is preferred.
The MB DNA Extraction Kit can also be used for DNA purification from cell culture supernatants which often show PCR inhibition at a late stage of cultivation.
