Bioside qualyfast DNA Extraction Kit

The qualyfast DNA Extraction Kit, from Bioside, is a fast DNA extraction kit designed to detect Legionella in clear water samples. Extracted DNA can be directly used in downstream applications, including PCR and qPCR, without the need for further purification.

Commercial operations that have been closed for several weeks or even months are at a heightened risk of the waterborne pathogen Legionella. Slow-moving or stagnant water allows the bacteria, which can cause the highly contagious, atypical pneumonia Legionnaire’s disease, to multiply. Unused air-conditioning and cooling tower systems, many of which have been idle in recent months, pose a particular public health risk.

The qualyfast Legionella PCR range offers environmental testing laboratories a complete sample-to-answer workflow that can deliver results in hours rather than days, when compared to more conventional culture media-based methods. This enables laboratories to give businesses the all-clear for Legionella and help them to get back to work.

The kits, which are stable at room temperature, offer a simple and easy-to-use workflow including: water sample preparation to eliminate common environmental contaminant-driven false negatives; rapid and sensitive qPCR detection technology provided as pre-dosed and lyophilised reagents to enable confident identification or exclusion of Legionella species and Legionella pneumophila in samples; and quantification standards for reproducible test results.
