Universal archaea

Target Tube Universal Archaea


Product description

The target tube “Universal archaea” measures the total amount of archaea in a DNA extract. Archaea constitute one of the three domains of life. They form a unique group of microorganisms that differ in many ways from both bacteria and eukaryotes. Archaea have a simple cell structure without a cell nucleus and are often found in extreme environments. Archaea are found in various aqueous environments, ranging from freshwater lakes and rivers to saltwater environments. Other archaea are also found in more moderate environments such as soil and sediments, where they play a significant role in biogeochemical cycles.

Archaea also play important roles in various ecological processes, including food chains, and the maintenance of ecosystem health. Monitoring archaea provides valuable insights into ecosystem health, biogeochemical processes, and environmental risks and can help in taking measures to improve environmental protection and conservation.
