MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J. -- A requirement of massively parallel SNP analysis is to have high quality DNA suitable for target amplifications, and prepared economically from practical blood volumes. ProPrep™ Genomic is a blood DNA purification system based upon the unique protein binding reagent, ProCipitate™. Data is presented demonstrating as little as 1-2 ng of template DNA being sufficient for a strong PCR amplicon signal. This means that theoretically 100,000+ PCR reactions, or multiples of that for multiplexed SNPs, can be obtained from one, 10 ml whole blood sample. The flexible ProPrep™ system permits the user to customize a multiple PCR or SNP strategy without regard to collecting impractical quantities of whole blood from any one individual. ProPrep™ Genomic can be also be scaled to accommodate different starting volumes. The protocol can be completed in approximately 1 hour with quantitative yields starting directly from whole blood.
