Standard methods for extracting DNA from tissues can be extremely laborious and time consuming. Certain applications, such as genotyping of transgenic mice using a section of tail, employ a lengthy DNA extraction process.
Affinity chromatography is the process of bioselective adsorption and subsequent recovery of a compound from an immobilized ligand. This process allows for the highly specific and efficient purification of many diverse proteins and other compounds. The process requires
The High Pure and silica adsorption kits developed by Roche depend on the tendency of nucleic acids to adsorb to silica (glass) in the presence of a chaotropic salt such as sodium iodide (NaI), guanidine thiocyanate or guanidine hydrochloride [Melzak
RNAstable® is a novel preservation product developed to protect
RNA from degradation during storage or shipment at ambient
temperatures. The synthetic storage medium is based on the natural principles of anhydrobiosis (meaning “life without water”), a biological mechanism employed by some organisms
The Extract-N-Amp™ Tissue PCR Kit has been created to release PCR-ready DNA from mouse tails in a 15 minute single tube procedure. The included 2x PCR mix is optimized to work with the crude extracts and the solutions in the
The Extract-N-Amp™ kits are designed to rapidly extract and amplify genomic DNA. The plant tissue version of these kits has been optimized to amplify without concern over plant inhibitors. This technical document will discuss the versions of this kit that
The availability of simple methods for purification of DNA and RNA has greatly facilitated the analysis and characterization of the genome and gene expression. There is a demand to isolate DNA and RNA rapidly and conveniently from a variety of
In recent years, array-based Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) has been refined to determine chromosomal changes at progressively higher resolutions. This evolving technology is, however, somewhat hampered by the large DNA input requirement—a minimum of 150,000 copies of a human genome
Impact of Purification Method on Accuracy of DNA Quantitation and Downstream Enzymatic Processes. Evaluation of the purity of genomic DNA by UV spectrophotometry, gel electrophoresis, and downstream qPCR using GenElute™-E DNA purification kits.
