Generation Capture Column Kit
For quick purification of DNA for standard PCR
The Generation Capture Column Kit provides the components and procedures necessary for purifying genomic DNA from whole blood, bone marrow, buffy coat, body fluids, cultured cells, cell suspensions, and Gram-negative bacteria. The kit employs a flexible solid-phase system with a unique trifunctional purification matrix and reagents for lysing cells and capturing and releasing DNA. This method does not require prelysing of the sample or precipitation of the DNA.
The Generation Capture Column Kit is intended for molecular biology applications. This product is not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
DNA yields depend on the number of nucleated cells present. Yields from whole blood may vary widely since white blood cell counts can differ by as much as tenfold. Typical DNA yields obtained from 200 μl whole blood with a normal white blood cell count (5–7 x 106 cells/ml blood) are in the range of 3–8 μg DNA.
The Generation Capture Column procedure yields pure DNA, indicated by A260/A280 ratios greater than 1.4. Up to 95% of the purified DNA is greater than 23 kb in size. The purified DNA can be stored at 2–8°C for up to 3 months. For long term storage (>3 months) store DNA at –20°C.

A sample is applied to the purification matrix contained in a spin column. The cells contained in the sample lyse upon contact with the matrix. Once the cells are lysed, DNA is captured by the matrix material which makes it possible to efficiently wash away contaminants, leaving the DNA bound to the matrix. Contaminants, including protein, heme, and RNA are removed from the matrix by washing with DNA Purification Solution 1. Following removal of contaminants, the DNA is released from the matrix with DNA Elution Solution 2 and heat. Samples of purified DNA are ready for analysis and do not require precipitation. The purified DNA solution is compatible with PCR and other DNA amplification technology but is not compatible with real-time PCR, restriction enzyme digests or Southern blot analysis.
