A1 Plant-Food DNA Kit allows rapid and reliable isolation of high-quality DNA from fresh, old, dried and complex matrices such as plant (leaf, root, resin etc.), food, chocolate, cereals and meat. Specific protocols exist for target host DNA for GMO testing or plant DNA for various testing. A1 Plant-Food DNA Kit Lysis Buffer allows for efficient homogenization of samples without foaming commonly seen in lysis buffers containing detergents resulting in higher yields. The system combines A1 Magnetic Beads with PFBB Buffer to eliminate PCR inhibiting compounds within the samples and elute highly concentrated DNA. The purified DNA can be used in PCR-based testing for plant and genetically modified organism (GMO) DNA. All process steps are completed in 45 minutes.
