To minimize the incidence of DNA shearing during extraction, the illustra tissue and cells genomicPrep Mini Spin Kit includes a lysis solution with proteinase K to gently release genomic DNA from tissues or cells. The kit can be used to extract DNA from diverse tissue types such as liver, kidney, and mouse tails with yields ranging from 0.5 to 1.5μg of genomic DNA per mg of tissue. The kit consistently generates purified genomic DNA with optical density A260/280 readings of about 1.8.
- Capable of purifying up to 1.5μg/mg of tissue from an input tissue sample range of 5 to 50mg, and up to 40μg of genomic DNA per 5 million cells depending on cell type
- Total DNA extraction time reduced significantly to 90 minutes (including tissue disruption)
- Produces high-quality genomic DNA with high molecular weight and less degradation
- Validated in several downstream applications including real-time PCR, endpoint PCR, multiplex PCR, and restriction enzyme digests
