We recommend the Promega ReliaPrep Tissue Miniprep kit for small tissue samples.
Application Area: Tissues from fin clips in Ethanol and DMSO
"We used this kit for field samples taken from tropical fish. Tissue samples were taken from the dorsal fin of the fish and stored in ethanol or in DMSO for transport. The tissue samples were very small and the tissue was not very DNA-rich. However, with the Promega kit, we were able to purify a large amount of DNA compared to other column-based kits. The quality and purity of the DNA were also great. The handling of the kit was very easy and the protocol was also quite fast. We recommend this kit."
The ReliaPrep™ gDNA Tissue Miniprep System provides a complete, ready-to-use method for purification of gDNA from up to 25mg of tissue, a buccal (cheek) swab, or a 1cm mouse tail snip, obtaining intact gDNA without the use of ethanol washes or precipitations.
