Magnetic Beads gDNA Kit (Food) MF048/MF096

The Magnetic Beads Genomic DNA Extraction Kit (Food) is designed for rapid isolation of DNA from a variety of raw and processed food samples. The unique MF1 Buffer when combined with Proteinase K is used to efficiently digest food tissue and proteins. PCR inhibitors such as polysaccharides and plant metabolites are removed by centrifugation. Chloroform treatment, separates residual inhibitors from the clear supernatant in the organic phase. DNA in the aqueous phase is then bound by the MF Magnetic Beads followed by wash and elution. The purified genomic DNA is ready for use in PCR, restriction enzyme digestion, and sequencing reactions.
