18 Genomic DNA isolation kit Jena Bioscience (Germany) Quotation

Mini spin column kits for the purification of DNA from microorganisms, plants, soil, tissue, blood and cell culture.

1- A kit for the isolation of total nucleic acids and DNA from Plants, Soil, Sediment and Water

With this kit total nucleic acids and DNA can be isolated within short time from monocots and dicots. The extraction of nucleic acids and the mini spin column purification procedure is simple in handling and very efficient. Fresh plant material as well as conserved samples (frozen, freeze-dried) can be processed. The isolated DNA is of high quality and can be used for downstream applications including restriction, ligation, PCR and hybridization. Further, the kit is designed for the extraction and purification of DNA from soils, sediments and water samples. A specially developed buffer is available for removal of contaminating humic and fulvic acids.

2- Blood and cell culture DNA in 20 to 30 min

DNA from blood and cell cultures can be purified in little time and just a few steps with this kit. Blood cells from whole blood are lysed in a chaotrophic buffer with proteinase K (10 min, 70°C). Afterwards hemoglobin and cell fragments are removed with a special buffer. The lysate is then mixed with binding buffer and loaded on mini spin columns. The complete purification procedure does not take longer than 30 min. Cultivated cells are directly lysed with a buffer containing guanidine hydrochloride. The DNA isolation process takes only 20 min.

3- Total nucleic acid and DNA purification from bacteria

Products Nucleic acid purification kits Genomic DNA PrestoSpin D Blood&Cell

DNA isolation with PrestoSpin D Blood&Cell (S) using 100 µl whole blood samples from three individuals (1-3, with coagulation inhibitor EDTA). The DNA has a large molecular size (> 50 kb) without degradation. For comparison, DNA was purified with a competitor's kit (MN). Within 30 min DNA can be isolated out of blood with the PrestoSpin D Blood&Cell. Left hand lane: Molzym's molecular size standard Lambda HindIII (upper band, 23 kb).

With this kit it is possible to isolate total nucleic acids or, after RNase-treatment, DNA within a short time (30 min). The cells are treated with lysozyme (15 min) and are afterwards lysed in a highly chaotropic milieu. This prevents the degradation of the nucleic acids by cellular nucleases. The purification protocol itself only requires a few steps. The nucleic acids respectively the DNA are eluted in a small volume (75-150 µl). High mol. wt. DNA is isolated (>50 kb) suitable for all downstream applications.
