The Quick-DNA/RNA Viral Kit provide for rapid, single column isolation of high-quality viral nucleic acids from a wide range of biological sources. The kit can be used to successfully isolate viral DNA and RNA from cell-free body fluids as well as cellular suspensions at concentrations ≤ 1 x 105 cells/ml. The procedure employs a single buffer system that facilitates viral particle lysis and allows for the subsequent DNA/RNA binding onto the matrix of the Zymo-Spin IC Column. The nucleic acids are washed then eluted with DNase/RNase-free Water. The eluted DNA and RNA are suitable for use in various subsequent procedures including RT/PCR.
