The complete kit solution for DNA extraction of animal and plant tissue
- Reinforced tubes designed for homogenization through rapid beat beating
- Silica-based columns capture DNA and allow for its purification
- Protocol and workflow optimized for Genomax, Geno/Grinder, and GenoLyte
The Spex Genomic DNA Isolation Kits are optimized to work with the Genomax, Geno/Grinder, and GenoLyte and allow for fast and seamless isolation of DNA from a wide variety of animal tissues and cells, including mammalian, poultry, fish, and soft and tough plant tissue.
The kit combines the use of chaotropic salts and detergents to disrupt animal tissues or cells permitting the selective binding of DNA to a silica column. Proteinase K and RNase A are then added to implement DNA isolation. An ethanol wash buffer is used to remove any additional elements or contamination from the silica column. The column is dried by centrifugation and DNA is eluted using the elution buffer.
