To complement these kits, an RNA extraction kit and a process control kit are available. 

  • Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs): The comprehensive portfolio contains a wide range of real-time and conventional PCR kits for the screening (GMOScreen), identification (GMOIdent) and quantification (GMOQuant) of GMOs.

  • Animal Species: The DNAnimal product line offers a broad spectrum of sensitive real-time PCR methods for a variety of animal species and taxonomic groups.

  • DNA Extraction: GENESpin and DNAExtractor kits for the extraction of DNA from various matrices for subsequent analysis are available, and DNA cleaning columns can additionally be used, if needed, for purification of the DNA, following the use of either of the extraction kits.
