The Genomic DNA Extraction Kit (Plant) (Duo Buffer System) provides a fast and
simple method to isolate DNA from plant tissue and cells. In the first step the
sample is lysed by homogenization. The lysate is treated with RNase A to remove
RNA. In the presence of a chaotropic salt, the genomic DNA in the lysate binds to
the glass fiber matrix in the spin column. The contaminants are washed with an
ethanol based wash buffer and purified genomic DNA is eluted by low salt elution
buffer or water. The protocol does not require DNA phenol extraction and alcohol
precipitation. The entire procedure can be completed in 60 minutes.
