Fast and reliable identification of viruses and in-depth virus research both became highly important over the last years. Proper isolation of viral RNA from nose or throat swabs is the first step in the workflow. Our Clean Viral RNA Swab Kit helps scientists by offering efficient RNA extraction from swabs in universal or viral transport media with magnetic beads.
Due to the use of the magnetic beads, the kit can easily be automated on liquid handling systems, as well as our CleanXtract 96 nucleic acid extraction system. This new system can process up to 96 samples per run. In case of manual extraction, our Clean Magnet Plate 96-Well can be used.

  • Easy automation with the CleanXtract 96
  • Suitable for PCR
  • Fast and efficient


First, we lyse the sample with the specially formulated lysis buffer, after which the nucleic acids bind to the added magnetics beads. During this step, DNases and RNases are deactivated. The magnetic plate separates the magnetic beads with RNA from the lysates. After a few rapid wash steps to remove trace contaminants (e.g. proteins and cellular debris), we elute the RNA in nuclease free water.

Workflow CleanNA


SARS-CoV-2 research is an important application of the Clean Viral RNA Swab Kit, but certainly not the only one. The system and kit can be used for many respiratory tract infections with swabs in either Universal or Virus Transport Medium, extracting the RNA for PCR or NGS experiments. Not only with existing viruses, but also variant that will appear in the future.
