Isolation of genomic DNA from plants using magnetic beads—NucleoMag 96 Plant
NucleoMag 96 Plant is designed for the rapid parallel purification of genomic DNA from plant tissues using magnetic beads. After lysis of the sample, genomic DNA is selectively bound to the NucleoMag Beads. Contaminants are washed away and the DNA can be eluted from the beads under low-salt conditions. Since the magnetic bead technology provides a closed system (no transfer of sample from one well to another is necessary during the preparation), the risk of cross-contamination is greatly reduced. NucleoMag technology can be easily adapted to common laboratory automation platforms. It can be used either with static-pin separators (e.g., NucleoMag SEP) or magnetic separators integrated into robotic workstations.
- One-tube procedure minimizes risk of cross-contamination
- Small elution volumes (>50 µl) are possible
- Yield does not depend on elution volume
- Easily adapted to automated use
