The Easy-DNA™ Kit is a fast and easy way to isolate high-quality, high-molecular weight genomic DNA (gDNA) from a wide range of cells and tissue types. Sample sizes can range from a single hair follicle up to 1 gram of mammalian tissue. Other samples tested include mouse tails, plant leaves, yeast, and E. coli cells. These samples yield high-quality DNA with an average size between 100 kb and 200 kb, which is suitable for PCR, DNA hybridization, genomic DNA library construction, and other ... Read more

It makes easy to work on conservation genetics, especially in a low-income country!
Rating: 3.0

  • Application Area: Tissue DNA isolation

"Ease of use: It's very easy to use and to isolate high-quality DNA from animal tissue, blood, and hair. After-sales care: It only needs to be at environmental temperature (average temperature in La Paz-Bolivia is 19 °C). Value for money: A kit for 100 samples has a cost of 500$ in Bolivia. Although it is not a low cost, it is one of the most inexpensive kits to isolate DNA that's high quality."

The Easy-DNA™ Kit is a fast and easy way to isolate high-quality, high-molecular weight genomic DNA (gDNA) from a wide range of cells and tissue types. Sample sizes can range from a single hair follicle up to 1 gram of mammalian tissue. Other samples tested include mouse tails, plant leaves, yeast, and E. coli cells. These samples yield high-quality DNA with an average size between 100 kb and 200 kb, which is suitable for PCR, DNA hybridization, genomic DNA library construction, and other applications. Advantages of the Easy-DNA™ Kit include:

  • Reliability—high-quality genomic DNA from large or small samples of cells, tissue, plant, yeast, E. coli, blood, and even hair follicles
  • Simplicity—for most sample types, only 4 steps, typically requiring less than 90 minutes are needed to isolate high-quality DNA
  • Versatility—one kit is supported by optimized protocols for a variety of cell and tissue types

Simple workflow, quality results
Optimized protocols for a variety of cell and tissue types are included in the instruction manual supplied with the kit. Generally, small-scale gDNA preparations are performed in microfuge tubes, in which samples are mixed with Lysis Solution and incubated at 65°C for 10 minutes. After extraction with chloroform (not included in kit), precipitation, and reconstitution of the DNA pellet, the preparation is complete. The kit contains a protein degradation reagent (for use with high-protein–containing samples such as connective tissue), mussel glycogen for use as a co-precipitant for dilute DNA samples, and an RNase solution.
