DNeasy Blood & Tissue Kits provide fast and easy silica-based DNA extraction without phenol or chloroform in convenient spin-column and 96-well-plate formats. Most samples can be directly lysed with proteinase K, eliminating the need for mechanical disruption and reducing hands-on time. Optimized protocols for specific sample types provide reproducible extraction of high-quality DNA for life science, genotyping, and veterinary pathogen research applications. Extraction of DNA using the DNeasy Blood & Tissue Kit can be automated on the QIAcube Connect.
DNeasy Blood & Tissue standard protocols can also be executed using the TRACKMAN Connected system, paired with PIPETMAN M Connected pipettes, both from Gilson. The TRACKMAN Connected system guides researchers through the DNeasy Blood & Tissue protocols while automatically adjusting the Bluetooth-enabled PIPETMAN M Connected pipette settings. Each step of the protocol execution is recorded to accelerate reporting by generating a comprehensive run report. Download more information.
In partnership with My Green Lab, we've also assessed the environmental impact of the DNeasy Blood & Tissue Kit (250). My Green Lab ACT (accountability, consistency, and transparency) environmental impact factor labels are designed to evaluate and score products on several sustainability criteria. These include:
- responsible chemical management
- sustainable content within products and packaging materials
- disposal of the packaging at the end of life
Products are scored from 1 to 10 except for energy and water consumption, which are scored as 1 point per kWh or gallon, respectively. A low score means a lower environmental impact.
You can view the ACT labels for the DNeasy Blood & Tissue Kit (250) in the Resources section below. For an eco-friendlier alternative to this kit, see our QIAwave DNA Blood & Tissue Kit.
