Stool. Plant. Microbe. Extract Fecal DNA for Microbiome Analysis.
Stool is an accessible and noninvasive source of biospecimen. Fecal DNA/RNA originated from the host, intestinal bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites, and incompletely digested foods are molecular fingerprints of the host and its health. AquaStool™ is a multifunctional aqueous reagent for fecal sample stabilization, DNA and RNA extraction and PCR inhibitor removal. It may be used to extract fecal DNA for non-invasive genotyping of transgenic animals. AquaStool may be used to preserve and extract DNA/RNA from human stools for host and gut microbiome research. AquaStool may also be used to extract DNA from tree tissues, which are particularly challenging with existing DNA extraction methods
