Efficient DNA Extraction from Food and Feed using the NucleoSpin Food kit on a Freedom EVO Workstation
6 August 2015
Food samples are very heterogeneous, and often contain substances which can impair DNA extraction, such as fats, cocoa or polysaccharides. In addition, processed foods often have a very low DNA content, which is of poor quality. Tecan and Machery-Nagel have joined forces to provide an efficient automated solution for the isolation of genomic DNA from foods, without compromising yield or purity. This application note presents the joint system work flow for the rapid extraction of genomic DNA from a variety of food and feed samples.
