As the world continues to face numerous environmental challenges, regulatory compliance and standards ought to be met. Quality control of sewage water or wastewater is utterly required to protect the environment and prevent community outbreaks.

ExtractNow™ Sewage Water DNA/RNA Kit has been designed for the isolation of DNA or RNA from viruses, bacteria or simply free-circulating DNA (e.g. plasmids) found in sewage water sediment or from the cleared supernatant. The kit combines a unique patented technology for enrichment of biomolecules with efficient DNA/RNA extraction using magnetic separation. Features

There are 2 protocols available- Isolation of nucleic acids from:
1. Sewage sediment only
2. Corresponding supernatant only

Separation Principle

  • Magnetic beads


  • Starting Material: Sewage Water (20mL)
  • After sedimentation: ~ 10 mL of supernatant and/or ~100-200 mg of sediment
  • Total isolation time: ~ 1 hour

Recommended use

The kit is designed for research purposes only. Refer to the lab manual for product specifications and troubleshooting.


  • Store the lyophilised Proteinase K, Beads M and Enrichment Reagent A at +2 °C to +8 °C.
  • After receiving the kit, store Carrier Reagent at ≤-18 °C.
  • All other components of the ExtractNow™ Sewage Water DNA/RNA Kit should be stored at room temperature.
  • Once Proteinase K is dissolved, it needs to be stored at ≤-18 °C.


ExtractNow™ Sewage Water DNA/RNA Kit has been produced and tested in an ISO 13485 certified facility.
