- Easy purification of high-quality DNA from whole blood, buffy coat, swabs, or cultured cells.
- Protocol excludes the use of Proteinase K and organic denaturants for biofluid and cell samples.
- Eluted, inhibitor-free DNA is ideal for PCR, endonuclease digestion, bisulfite conversion/methylation detection, sequencing, genotyping, etc.
|Elution Volume||≥50 µl|
|Purity||High-quality DNA is eluted with DNA Elution Buffer or water. DNA is especially well suited for PCR and other downstream applications. A260/A280>1.8|
|Sample Source||Whole blood, plasma, or serum from humans, mice, rats, etc. Cells from culture, buccal cells, as well as a variety of biological liquids are effectively processed using this kit. Tissue already digested with Proteinase K or mechanically homogenized.|
|Size Range||Capable of recovering genomic DNA up to and above 40 kb. In most instances, mitochondrial DNA and viral DNA (if present) will also be recovered|
|Workflow||Unique lysis buffer system omits the need for Proteinase K digestion for biological fluids and cell culture samples.|
|Yield||Up to 25 µg total DNA is eluted into ≥50 µl (30 µl minimum) DNA Elution Buffer or water. Human whole blood yields 3-7 µg DNA per 100 µl blood sampled. Mammalian tissues already homogenized will yield 1-3 µg DNA per mg.|
Q1: What is the difference between Quick-DNA and Quick-DNA Plus kits?
Q2: I’m seeing some yield inconsistencies with my blood samples, what’s happening?

“It was easy to work with, protocol easy to follow”

“This kit did a good job of prepping clean genomic DNA.”

“This product was amazing! I’ve used the same type of kit (quick DNA extract) from Sigma and this was far more superior. I used the same amount of postnatal tissue as I would have for the Sigma kit, however the yield I obtained from Zymo was quite astounding considering the time of tissue digestion. Secondly, the gDNA was much ‘cleaner’ upon measurement with our NanoDrop! ”
