Kit for isolating DNA from ticks in less then one hour.

blackPREP Tick DNA Kit


Analytik Jena's blackPREP Tick DNA Kit has been adapted specifically for isolating DNA from ticks. The kit contains Lysis Tubes with optimized beads and can be used in combination with the SpeedMill (Analytik Jena) or other homogenizers as an efficient means of mechanically disruption of ticks without degrading the DNA.

The steps that follow lysis (binding and washing the DNA; final elution) guarantee highly efficient DNA purification. Analytik Jena´s rapidSTRIPE assays can then be used in later applications as fast, uncomplicated tools for detecting tick-borne pathogens. These ready-to-use assays can be used as highly specific tools for detecting Borrelia, Rickettsia, Anaplasma and Babesia, among other pathogens.
