Application Note: Variation of Homogenization Time to Optimize Yield and Quality of DNA Extraction from S. cerevisiae Suspension
20 May 2016

S. cerevisiae, which serves as a model organism in a various numbers of laboratories, is characterize by a stable cell structure that required both mechanical disruption and enzymatic lysis to achieve the best results for DNA extraction. This application note demonstrates the complete homogenization and DNA extraction of a sample of S. cerevisae using the SpeedMill PLUS in combination with innuSPEED Bacteria/Fungi DNA Kit.
