For the rapid purification of DNA from yeast cells and fungal spores or mycelium

  • Rapid spin column purification of genomic DNA from viable yeast cells, fungal spores or mycelium, and bacteria including Gram-positive
  • Bead tubes (provided) allow for effective mechanical homogenization
  • Purified DNA is of high quality and integrity and compatible with any sensitive downstream applications such as PCR, qPCR, RFLP and more

Fungi/Yeast Genomic DNA Isolation Kit 27300 50 preps

Fungi/Yeast Genomic DNA Isolation Kit

This kit provides rapid spin column purification of genomic DNA from viable yeast cells, fungal spores or mycelium, and bacteria including Gram-positive.  Genomic DNA is efficiently extracted from the cells by a combination of heat treatment, detergents and Bead Tubes (provided). An optional lyticase treatment allows for improved DNA yields with certain fungal and yeast species. Protocol time is typically less then 30 minutes. Recovered genomic DNA is of excellent yield and purity for any downstream application including PCR, qPCR, Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (RFLP), Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP), sequencing, SNP analysis and more.
