General description

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.

Features and Benefits

• Efficient 8 minute prep allows greater speed and throughput
• No need for any type of purification, organic extraction, centrifugation or alcohol precipitation
• Simple, 3 step procedure with no special equipment required
• Hot start antibody included for highly specific PCR amplification of genomic DNA
• Compatible with multiple format (single tube or 96-well plate)
• Can be used with whole blood or blood cards
• Extract stable at 4 °C for at least 6 months (Fig. 2)


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.
