MagIso™ Giardia Isolation Kit (# WHK-V002) has been developed for the immunomagnetic separation (IMS) of Giardia spp. cysts from a wide range of sample matrices. The high sensitivity and specificity of the magnetic particles used in the kit results from the covalent attachment of a high affinity monoclonal antibody developed against an epitope on the wall of Giardia cysts. When combined with the Assay Buffer and Wash Buffer, Giardia spp. cysts can be efficiently isolated and enumerated by a variety of techniques including, but not limited to immunofluorescent antibody (IFA) staining and PCR.
