- Item Description
- Technical Information
- Ideal for buccal swabs and saliva samples
- Pure DNA in 20 minutes
- Up to 2ug of DNA from each swab
The IBI gSwab Mini Genomic DNA kit is ideal for epigenetics applications such as isolating genomic, mitochondrial and viral DNA from buccal swabs and saliva samples. Proteinase K and chaotropic salt are used to lyse cells and degrade protein, allowing DNA to bind to the glass fiber matrix of the spin column. Carrier RNA is included with the kit to improve the efficiency of DNA binding to the spin column membrane.
High quality genomic DNA can be purified in 20 minutes without phenol/chloroform extraction or alcohol precipitation, with an average DNA yield of 2 µg per/buccal swab.
Saliva sample size: 1 -100 µl.
