GeneFiX Saliva DNA Isolation Kits
- Fully Optimised for saliva samples
- High-purity genomic DNA
- Yields more than 100µg DNA
- No solvents
The GeneFiX Isolation kits have been developed for use with stabilised saliva collected from GeneFix Saliva Collectors, and will also work with many other saliva collection devices. You can choose from two types of kits: precipitation-based, which is faster and easier, or column-based, which offers the highest purity.
Fast & easy prep
GeneFix Saliva-Prep DNA Isolation kits use a precipitation chemistry that is rapid, very easy to use, and gives high yields without sacrificing on purity. The method is optimized to avoid RNA co-precipitation resulting in ultra low RNA contamination of the final DNA samples.
DNA yields are exceptional and greatly in excess of 100μg with typical A260/280 values above 1.7 and with A260/230 typically in excess of 1.5. In our experiments these ratios compare extremely favourably against similar, and other ethanol precipitation type chemistries.
In addition the system is free of ethanol and other solvents, Processing choices are flexible for volumes up to 2ml of saliva.
The Saliva-Prep’s practical advantages make it the method of choice for a rapid and efficient isolation method that is easy to use and offers outstanding yields.
Saliva Mini/Midi DNA Isolation kits are silica column kits that produce the highest DNA purities, suitable for the most demanding of downstream processing applications
The Mini column kit should be used for 0.5 - 1 ml of stabilised saliva and the Midi kit for the whole 2ml of stabilised saliva from a GeneFix Saliva collector in one batch.
The columns fit existing vacuum manifolds and other robotic instruments allowing a switch from manual to HT applications.
