PCR kits for molecular read-out using Actiphage
Following the Actiphage Rapid and/or Core assays, we recommend DNA clean-up of samples using Zymo DNA Clean and Recovery, or NEB DNA Clean up. Resulting DNA is amenable to PCR and other molecular read-outs. Real-time PCR kits, suitable for use with Actiphage, are available to order.
