High-Quality Bacterial DNA from Food Samples


Take a Closer Look and Take Control of Your Processes

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.

[ts-heading h2=”Isolate Pathogen DNA from Many Food Sample Types” css_animation=”fadeInDown”]This method has been used to isolate pathogen DNA from a number of different food samples including E. coli 0157:H7 from uncooked beef, Salmonella enterica from uncooked chicken, and Listeria monocytogenes from whole milk.[/ts-heading]
Comparison of total DNA and E. coli 0157:H7 DNA extracted from cilantro samples spiked with the indicated amounts of  E. coli 0157:H7 bacteria. The total DNA concentration was assessed using the QuantiFluor® ONE dsDNA System.
