|Silica-membrane technology combined with MN Bead Tubes Type A|
|100–200 mg of human stool* (fresh or frozen)|
|Vacuum (manual or automated)|
|50 bp–approximately 50 kb|
|3–15 µg (varies by sample and disruption device)|
|90 min/96 preps (automated processing)|
*For animal stool specimens and challenging samples with high amounts of lipids, polysaccharides, or proteins, it is recommended to first attempt processing of smaller inputs (e.g., 50–100 mg of sample material).
