PRLog (Press Release) - Aug 19, 2012 - MONMOUTH JUNCTION, NJ.–In order to perform sequencing, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), microarrays and similar techniques for molecular biology studies, researchers routinely implement DNA extraction or enrichment techniques to separate DNA from protein samples. Traditionally DNA from biological samples such as blood, human, animal,plant tissues, bacteria and cell cultures is separated from DNA by a combination of proteinases and organic solvents, such as phenol. Phenol extraction method for deproteinization of nucleic acid solutions is toxic, requires redistillation before use and accumulates phenolic oxidation products (quinones, diacids, etc.) during storage which is purified using dialysis. ProCipitate™ is non-hazardous and can replace phenol/chloroform with the additional benefits of solid-phase suspensions: adaptability to filtration and automation. It is routinely used for plasmids, cosmids, BACs, and genomic DNA, as well as RNA. ProCipitate™ can also be used to remove Proteinase K and other enzymes. ProCipitate™ provides high quality DNA suitable for automated sequencing, southern blotting, and restriction digestion. ProCipitate™ binds proteins and DNA/RNA remains unreacted.
Preparation of large quantity and high quality genomic DNA requires gathering cells containing DNA, releasing DNA from collected cells, separation of DNA from proteins and cellular contaminants and isolation of concentrated DNA for use in genetic and genomic analyses techniques such as genetic mapping, TILLING (Targeting Induced Local Lesion IN Genome), and next-generation sequencing. ProCipitate™ is high throughput, high yield, and cost efficient for small or large sample genomic DNA enrichment. It is compatible with high throughput genomic DNA isolation and produces high quality, improved yield of DNA over alternative bind and elute systems. ProCipitate™ is available as a suspension reagent and in ProPrep™ kits for specific applications and high-throughput 96 well filter formats.
