## Most states require 1 gram per "batch" for MIPs, but some ask for more than 1 gram depending on the matrix.

We offer two sizes of SenSATIVAx® MIP Kits. The small kit contains enough reagents for processing samples that require only 0.25 grams of matrix. The large kit contains enough reagents for up to 1 gram of matrix. Every state has its own set of regulations that define how much sample is required per sample type. **The primary difference between the two sizes is the amount of Solution A (the DNA lysis buffer) that is needed to run the extraction method.**

For processing 1 gram of sample, our user guide calls for 4.6 mLs of Solution A per gram. That's 920 mLs total. So why does our large 1 gram kit contain two (2) 700 mL bottles of Solution A? Because some matrices require 7 mLs per gram. That's 1400 mLs total. **We provide the maximum amount you may need, and if you're not processing certain sample types then you will have excess Solution A reagent.**

The state of Colorado is unique in that regulations require that 10-100 grams be tested per batch for certain MIP matrices. In this case, 46-460 mLs of Solution A are needed for processing. If you are processing these types of MIP matrices in Colorado we can supply individual bottles of the SenSATIVAx® Solution A reagent.
