Enriching pathogens from whole blood

Sensitive identification of pathogens - especially directly from human whole blood - requires the removal of DNA of human blood cells and the enrichment of pathogen cells.


GINA Pathogen Enrichment kits handle up to 1.5 mL of sample (whole blood) and use standard laboratory equipment as a centrifuge and a heating block. GINA Pathogen Enrichment includes the removal of  host DNA and pathogen DNA enrichment. The kits can be combined with any commercial DNA purification kit, be it manual or automated.


Together with Cube Dx’ Pathogen Identification hybcells, life-threatening infections like sepsis can be determined after 3 hours – from whole blood samples.
