Product Info

The LOOXSTER® Enrichment Kit is a sample preparation system for enriching bacterial and fungal deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA) in a DNA isolate of predominantly eucaryotic origin. The specific affinity of the LOOXSTER® protein for non-methylated CpG dinucleotides is what produces the LOOXSTER® enrichment effect. DNA extracts containing a mixture of methylated host DNA and small quantities of double-stranded genomic bacterial or fungal DNA, are incubated with LOOXSTER® in the presence of a stringent buffer. A subsequent wash step can be used for removing unbound DNA. The enriched bacterial DNA is then eluted with the aid of an elution buffer.
The PureProve® concept: following suitable processes for reducing contamination with DNA, all system components are filled and packaged under clean-room conditions.

Starting material:

Up to 300 μg of predominantly eucaryotic DNA

Extraction time:

Approx. 75 minutes

Average yield:

  • ƒNo more than 3 μg of enriched DNA
  • The concentration of bacterial DNA in the enriched DNA depends on the ratio of eucaryotic DNA to procaryotic DNA.
  • Example: Less than 5 % of the human DNA and approx. 50 % of the bacterial DNA (E. coli) were isolated from a 100,000-fold excess of human DNA in the starting sample.

Average purity:

1.7 - 2.0
