The Extract-N-Amp Blood PCR Kits contain all of the reagents necessary to rapidly extract host genomic DNA from whole blood and amplify targets of interest by PCR (Fig. 1). This novel extraction system eliminates the need for any type of purification, organic extraction, centrifugation, heating, filtration or alcohol precipitation. The kit also includes a PCR ReadyMix™, specially formulated for amplification directly from the extract. This formulation uses an antibody based hot start, for specific amplification.
Genomic DNA is extracted from 10 μl of whole blood by simply adding the Extraction Solution and incubating for 5 minutes at room temperature. The Neutralization Solution is added to the extract to counteract inhibitory substances prior to PCR. A portion of the DNA extract is then added to the specially formulated PCR ReadyMix.
