Strain Designations Quantitated genomic DNA from Babesia microti strain Gray (ATCC® 30221™)
Application Quantitative Babesia microti Genomic DNA is total DNA isolated from hamsters infected with the organism Babesia microti.

ATCC® Genuine Nucleics can be used for assay development, verification, validation, monitoring of day to day test variation and lot to lot performance of molecular-based assays. The quantitative format allows for the generation of a standard curve for quantitative PCR (qPCR).
Biosafety Level 1
Product Format frozen
Total DNA: at least 200 ng by PicoGreen®
Copy number: ≥ 5 x 103 copies/µL
OD260/OD280: 1.6 to 2.1
Storage Conditions -20°C or colder
Comments This preparation of high molecular weight DNA is appropriate for use in the polymerase chain reaction (PCR)* process and other molecular biology applications.
*The PCR process is covered by patents owned by Hoffmann-La Roche Inc. Use of the PCR process requires a license.
