Genomic Sample Prep


Efficiently removes Hemoglobin for circulating DNA isolation

  • Total protein removal comparable to phenol/chloroform
  • Used throughout the Human Genome Sequencing Project*
  • Alternative to bind/elute preps which subject DNA to high shear
  • High purity (1 ng template suitable PCR) and high molecular weight

Sample Type ProCipitate Typical Usage
10 ml Yeast Culture Genomic DNA 1-2 ml
Whole Blood Genomic DNA 250 μl
4 mm Plant Leaf 100-200 μl
2 ml culture BAC Preps 80 μl
250 μl culture Plasmid Preps 20 μl
200 ml Large Scale BAC Preps 5 ml
Dried Blood Card (or ~ 15 μl Whole Blood) 250 μl

PCR from whole blood using ProPrep Genomic kit

Lane 1: 100-1000 base pair Ladder

Lane 2: Negative Control

Lanes 3-10:
PCR amplicons from 1 ng template DNA purified from whole blood, randomly selected from 96 wells. Amplicons are 280 base pairs from Human HLA-DRBeta primers at 32 cycles.
