Empirical Bioscience announced that they have introduced the EB Pure Tissue DNA Kit, a convenient system that allows for the purification of genomic DNA from animal tissue in 20 minutes or less.
The all-inclusive kit features binding buffer, activation buffer, elution buffer, washing buffer, spin columns, protease solution, and collection tubes. The system’s high-binding configuration specifically, but reversibly, binds DNA or RNA under optimized conditions allowing proteins and other contaminants to be removed. This helps to guarantee high and consistent recovery rates, while simultaneously removing primer-dimers, primers, nucleotides, proteins, salt, agarose, ethidium bromide, and other impurities.
“Our New EB Pure Tissue DNA kit allows researchers to extract genomic DNA in a fraction of the time it would take with other methods,” said Des O’Farrell, president of Empirical Bioscience. “And with a lot less hassle,” he added.
What’s more, since the extraction kits allow for the binding of DNA in high-salt and elution in a low-salt buffer, no organic extractions or additional precipitations are necessary. The extracted DNA is suitable for use in most applications such as, PCR, Southern Blotting, and restriction enzyme digestion.
