Plant/Fungi DNA Isolation Kit

This kit provides a rapid method for the isolation and purification of total DNA from a wide range of plant and fungal species. Total DNA, including genomic DNA, mitochondrial DNA and chloroplast DNA can be purified from fresh or frozen plant tissues, plant cells or fungi samples using this kit. Purified DNA samples can be used for the detection of viral pathogens, as viral DNA is isolated with the plant/fungi DNA. The protocol can be completed in 45 minutes. The purified DNA is of the highest integrity, and can be used in a number of downstream applications including PCR, qPCR, SNP, Southern blotting and sequencing.

This kit is also available in a 96-well format for high throughput applications.
