General description

Sigma′s GenElute Urine Cell-Free DNA Purification Mini Kit provides a fast, reliable and simple procedures for isolating cell-free circulating DNA (cfc-DNA) from various amounts of urine ranging from 250 μL up to 2 mL. Purification is based on spin column chromatography that uses Sigma′s proprietary resin separation matrix. The kits are designed to isolate all sizes of cfc-DNA from either fresh or frozen urine samples. Moreover, these kits allow the user to elute the purified cfc-DNA into a flexible elution volume ranging from 25 μL to 50 μL. The purified urine cfc-DNA is eluted in an elution buffer that is compatible with all downstream applications including PCR, qPCR, methylation-sensitive PCR and Southern Blot analysis, and NGS.
