100 Volts, 90 minutes


Wolbachia presence Unknown
Confidence level High
Explanation of confidence level

DNA extraction failed, as the third lane containing this arthropod did not have bands.  We know it’s DNA extraction because Lane 2, containing a different arthropod, had bands and underwent the same PCR, and had a band.
