BioSprint DNA Plant Kits enable purification of total DNA from a wide variety of plant species, including difficult plant material. Fresh, frozen or lyophilized starting material is mechanically disrupted to give a fine powder using a homogenizer such as the TissueLyser LT or TissueLyser II. The powder is resuspended in lysis buffer, thoroughly mixed and then sedimented by a short centrifugation step. Cleared plant lysates are transferred to a 5-well strip or S-Block and loaded into the instrument, which then performs all steps until pure DNA is obtained (see flowchart " BioSprint DNA Plant procedure"). The kits provide all the necessary reagents and plasticware for sample preparation, and are available in different sizes, allowing cost-efficient use of consumables.
