- Product Description
- Works with all blood types - Automated isolation of high yields of nucleic acids from fresh and frozen whole blood, buffy coat, plasma and stabilized blood
- Novel ClearMag magnetic particle technology - Captures DNA and RNA without binding common blood-derived PCR inhibitors, facilitating isolation of pure DNA for use in PCR, RT-qPCR, qPCR, RNA-seq, Sanger sequencing and NGS
- Automated purification - Optimized for use with the KingFisher Flex and KingFisher Duo automated processing systems, with the ability to adapt to other platforms
The MagAttract Blood DNA/RNA Kit can be used for automated, high throughput, and simultaneous co-isolation of DNA and RNA from 200 μl of anti-coagulant stabilized whole blood. This protocol has been validated with fresh blood (including blood stored in PAXgeneTubes and in the RNAgard Blood System) and can isolate DNA from buffy coats and plasma as well as frozen blood. The PowerMag Blood DNA/RNA Kit is optimized for use with the Thermo Scientific KingFisher Flex and KingFisher Duo platforms, but can be adapted for other automated processing systems (contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information).
Use of MO BIO’s novel ClearMag magnetic beads enables efficient co-extraction of DNA and RNA from the same sample resulting in high yields, excellent purity and high molecular weight DNA (up to 48 kb). Furthermore, ClearMag bead technology provides a robust method for preventing the co-isolation of common blood-derived PCR inhibitors, thereby ensuring successful downstream applications such as PCR, RT-qPCR, qPCR, RNA-seq, Sanger sequencing and NGS.
Formerly known as the PowerMag Blood DNA/RNA Isolation Kit.

Pure Nucleic Acids Table 1. Isolation of pure nucleic acids from 200 µl of whole blood using MO BIO’s MagAttract Blood DNA/RNA Kit. Figure 1. The MagAttract Blood DNA/RNA Kit results in amplifiable RNA that is PCR inhibitor-free, as indicated by the 10-fold difference in amplification between the original (undiluted) extract and 1:10 diluted extract (>3.3). High Molecular Weight DNA A. B. Figure 2. High molecular weight DNA is isolated from fresh (A) and frozen (B) human whole blood using MO BIO’s MagAttract Blood DNA/RNA Kit. Frozen blood was stored at -80°C for one month. Quality Nucleic Acids from Stabilized Blood A. B. C. Figure 3. MO BIO’s MagAttract Blood DNA/RNA Kit results in high quality RNA from human whole blood preserved at -20°C in PAXgene RNA tubes (A), PAXgene DNA tubes (B), and Biomatrica RNAguard tubes (C). Additionally, high quality DNA can be recovered from each stabilization tube.
