Product Details

Puregene Accessories used in combination with Gentra Puregene Kits enable purification of high-molecular-weight (100–200 kb) DNA suitable for archiving. The scalable purification procedure gently removes contaminants and inhibitors and allows large-volume samples to be purified for use as long-term references.

Principle

Using Gentra Puregene Kits, cells are lysed with an anionic detergent in the presence of a DNA stabilizer. The DNA stabilizer limits the activity of intracellular DNases and also DNases found elsewhere in the environment. RNA is then removed by treatment with an RNA digesting enzyme. Other contaminants, such as proteins, are removed by salt precipitation. Finally, the genomic DNA is recovered by precipitation with alcohol and dissolved in hydration solution (1 mM EDTA, 10 mM Tris·Cl pH 7.5). Purified DNA typically has an A260/A280 ratio between 1.7 and 1.9, and is up to 200 kb in size. The DNA can be safely stored at 2–8°C, –20°C, or –80°C.

Procedure

Archive-quality DNA 

Purity of DNA has a significant effect on the accuracy of results obtained in downstream applications. Sensitive downstream applications, such as PCR, demand the use of DNA of the highest quality and molecular weight for reliable results. Gentra Puregene Kits removes contaminants and enzyme inhibitors enabling purification of highly stable DNA well-suited for archiving. Purified DNA is of high quality demonstrated by molecular weights of 100–200 kb. 

Applications

DNA purified using Puregene Accessories and Gentra Puregene Kits is highly stable and suited for use in a wide range of applications, such as:

  • DNA archiving
  • PCR
  • SNP analysis
  • Southern blotting

FAQ

What is the composition of RBC Lysis Solution?
The exact composition of RBC Lysis Solution is confidential. RBC Lysis Solution is a component of Gentra Puregene Blood Kits. RBC Lysis Solution selectively lyses human red blood cells leaving white blood cells intact. You can order RBC Lysis Solutin separately.
FAQ ID -2808
What is the composition of DNA Hydration Solution in Gentra Puregene Kits?

The composition of DNA Hydration Solution is as follows:

  • 10 mM Tris
  • 1 mM EDTA
  • pH 7–8

DNA Hydration Solution is included in QIAGEN’s Gentra Puregene Kits for DNA purification and can also be bought separately from QIAGEN.

3314-What is the concentration of RNase A sold separately?

RNase A (17500 U), catalog number 19101, is 100mg/ml. 

RNase A Solution (650 µl), catalog number 158922, and RNase A Solution (5 ml), catalog number 158924, are both 4mg/ml.

What is the composition and concentration of Glycogen Solution in Gentra Puregene Kits?
The exact composition of Glycogen Solution is confidential. The Glycogen concentration is 20mg/mL. Glycogen Solution is a component of Gentra Puregene Kits for DNA purification. During isopropanol precipitation, Glycogen Solution acts as a nucleic acid carrier and helps to efficiently precipitate small amounts of DNA. In addition, it facilitates visualization of the DNA pellet. Glycogen Solution can be purchased separately.

 

Note: Glycogen Solution does not work in combination with QIAGEN’s silica membrane technologies, e.g., RNeasy, DNeasy, QIAamp, etc. With these technologies, poly-A carrier RNA is used when dealing with low amounts of nucleic acids.
