The Environmental DNA Isolation Kit is used to quickly and efficiently isolate environmental DNA from water samples. The Environmental DNA Isolation Kit procedure is suitable for qualitative and quantitative PCR amplification. The whole procedure for isolation of total eDNA takes about 2 hours. The isolated DNA will be dissolved in TE and is ready to use in qPCR.

The kit is perfectly suited for eDNA extraction and isolation from the eDNA Dual Filter membrane. See a short tutorial how to extract preserved eDNA from the capsule and how to proceed. The complete procedure is described in the instruction protocol.

Optional:  internal positive control (IPC) quantification kit

 All Sylphium sample sets contain an internal positive control (IPC) in the preservation solution. The internal control consists of a small piece of synthetic xenobiotic DNA. The positive control DNA sequence selected is unknown in the aquatic environment and will not interfere with the detection of target organisms. The internal positive control is an efficiency check of the DNA isolation procedure and a quality and purity check of the isolated DNA. Optionally, the Internal Positive Control (IPC) quantification kit can be ordered along with the eDNA Isolation Kit. The IPC is quantified through the FAM channel.
