Bacteriophage Lambda, DNA
Each aliquot contains 25 ug of DNA extracted from a partially purified preparation of Bacteriophage Lambda. The DNA was extracted from the phage following the whole blood spin protocol from the QIAamp DNA Blood Maxi kit. DNA concentration and A260/280 ratios are determined using a NanoDrop ND-1000. The extracted DNA also tested positive on an inhouse real time PCR assay. The preparation also contains Escherichia coli DNA.
Purified Genomic DNA is designed for use as an amplification and/or detection control for nucleic acid testing of Bacteriophage Lambda. It can also be used to determine a limit of detection (LOD), in diagnostic assay development, cross-reactivity studies or genomic sequencing. When used as a control for nucleic acid tests, the same protocols as those used to amplify extracted clinical specimens should be employed.
