The deltaPREP Virus TS RNA Kit is designed for fast isolation of viral RNA from tracheal swabs. The extraction procedure is based on a new and patented chemistry. The procedure combines lysis of starting material with subsequent binding of viral nucleic acids onto the surface of a Spin Filter membrane. After several washing steps the viral nucleic acids are eluted from the membrane by using RNase free water. Extraction chemistry and extraction protocol are optimized to get a maximum yield. The kit also contains a Carrier RNA.
The detection limit for certain viruses depends on individual procedures, for example in house PCR or commercially used detection assays. We highly recommend the usage of own internal control DNA or RNA (IC DNA/RNA) or own internal standards (low copy) respectively, as well as positive and negative controls to monitor the purification, amplification, and detection processes.
