If you need to make quick decisions about potential food spoilage and contamination, the Maxwell® RSC PureFood Pathogen Kit offers a simple extraction protocol to obtain high-quality bacterial DNA from a variety of food sample types. The kit works with inhibiting sample types, and can lyse both Gram+ or Gram– bacteria, eliminating laborious sample preparation steps like enzymatic pretreatment.
The extracted DNA is ready for advanced downstream molecular analyses including NGS, serotyping, and identification of spoilage organisms. The high-performance Maxwell® chemistries coupled with the trusted benchtop Maxwell® RSC instruments allow you to purify bacterial DNA from food samples in as little as 40 minutes, giving you the ability to get answers more quickly.
The Maxwell® RSC Instruments are supplied with preprogrammed purification methods and use predispensed reagent cartridges to maximize simplicity and convenience. The Maxwell® RSC Instrument can process from 1 to 16 samples and the Maxwell® RSC 48 can process from 1 to 48 samples in a single run.
