Using the innuPREP Bacteria DNA Kit-IPC16 allows researchers to isolate bacterial DNA both from bacterial cultures (gram+ and gram-) and from tissue samples. The corresponding extraction routine proceeds on the InnuPure® C16 automation system. Following external lysis, the sample is transferred to pre-filled, sealed Reagent Strips/Plates. The subsequent processes of binding the nucleic acid to magnetic particles, washing and final elution are fully automated. The option of initially lysing the cell walls with lysozyme, especially if working with gram+ bacteria is recommended. Yields and purity of the isolated, bacterial DNA are excellent.
