Purifying viral nucleic acid from a variety of human sample sources is an important step in identifying many viruses and determining viral load. The Maxwell®16 LEV Viral Total Nucleic Acid Purification Kit was designed to purify nucleic acid from viruses in plasma or serum. We are currently developing research applications for this kit to purify viral nucleic acid from other sample sources: nasal swabs in transport media, bodily fluids (e.g. urine) and preserved cervical swab specimens.
