The AquaScreen® product line is an in vitro test system for quantitative detection of various water pathogens. The AquaScreen® FastExtract kit is specifically designed for extracting microbial DNA from water samples. The kit complies with the design requirements of ISO/TS 12869:2012. The extracted DNA is used in conjunction with our AquaScreen® qPCR kits for sensitive and reliable detection of legionella and other bacteria in water samples.
The AquaScreen® FastExtract kit works robustly with various volumes of water samples by utilizing 0.4 m filter membranes in order to capture microorganisms. Bacterial cells are subsequently lysed on the filter membrane, followed by spin column purification. The DNA is eluted in minimal volumes and ready-to-use for qPCR.
AquaScreen® FastExtract can be used with your established suction device (47 mm frit) for the extraction of legionella and other microbial species. AquaScreen® FastExtract is optimized for high flow and throughput and provides high quality DNA for subsequent PCR analysis.
