The UltraClean® GelSpin® DNA Extraction Kit utilizes a silica-based spin filter membrane to isolate DNA from agarose gels. After electrophoresis, the desired DNA band is cut from the agarose gel and placed directly in the spin filter column. The kit uses a very simple technique to melt the gel, bind the DNA, wash it and recover it. Popular uses include purification from gels, restriction digests, sequencing reactions (dye removal), radioactive and non-radioactive labeling reactions. The kit also removes all gel stains like ethidium bromide, SYBR® Green and xylene cyanol. The DNA is immediately ready to use for restriction digest, ligation, labeling or PCR.
