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

Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

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.
