Nucleic Acid Purification
The FAF offers genomic DNA purification from whole blood, buffy coat, packed cells, cultured cells, blood spot cards, FFPE samples, and buccal swabs/brushes, mouthwash, and Oragene saliva collection kits. Depending on sample type, purification is carried out with either Puregene kit reagents (Qiagen) on an Autopure automated workstation or Qiagen column based kits on a QIAcube automated workstation. A260 and A280 measurements are determined with a Nanodrop spectrophotometer.
DNA is suitable for archiving, PCR, Southern blotting, library construction and other applications requiring high molecular weight DNA.
Prices range from $25 to $45 per sample. Volume pricing is available for large study projects or batched samples.
