Genomic DNA isolation is a crucial technique in molecular biology, genetic manipulation and biotechnology. To carry out these exciting and innovative sciences, researchers require an original source of DNA, which is easy to acquire as it is found in every living organism. Genomic DNA is the blueprint of life and this kit teaches students how to isolate their very own genomic DNA.
Our Genomic DNA isolation kit utilizes detergent lysis of tissues, followed by precipitation of interfering agents, including proteins and recovery of genomic DNA with isopropanol precipitation. The kit is supplied with variations of the main protocol to educate students on the different conditions required for purification from different tissues, such as blood, bacteria and plants. Importantly, this kit does not utilize toxic agents, such as phenol or chloroform for genomic DNA extraction.
The Agarose Electrophoresis kit can be employed to visualize the purified DNA.
Supplied with components needed for hands-on experimentation for six workstations of 4-5 students or 24-30 students. Supplied with Teacher’s Guide and separate Student’s Guides.
