Anachem highlights benefits of new cell lysing reagent
13 August 2009 00:00 in Scientific
Anachem has highlighted the ease of use with which its new product allows individuals to prepare DNA samples for amplification.
Entitled DNAreleasy, the lysing reagent removes the need for a lengthy extraction process or spin column, the firm explains.
With just a ten minute incubation period on a thermal cylinder needed before DNA can be used in a PCR, DNAreleasy can be mixed with cells and overlaid with mineral oil.
It is then placed in a thermal cycler and treated at 75 degrees C for five minutes and a further two minutes at 96 degrees C. After being held at a temperature of 20 degrees C, DNA will be ready to use, Anachem claims.
The product can be used on a wide variety of DNA, including that of mice and rats, plants, yeast, viruses and human fibroblast tissue culture cells.
In May, Amachem stated that companies using its MicroSol3+ Super concentrated decontamination solution will have better protection against an array of potential problems.
