Quantitative Genomic DNA from Babesia microti (ATCC® PRA-398DQ)

Depositor: ATCC  /  Biosafety Level: 1


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) to determine protozoan load.

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
Specification range: ≥1 x 105 copies/µL
100 µL per vial
Storage Conditions -20°C or colder

Genomic DNA isolated from a preparation of Babesia microti strain GI (Ingram strain) (ATCC® PRA-398™). The source organism is also available through the ATCC catalog.
