Compared with the final volume of 40 μl DNA extracted from 20 μl plasmas according to the instruction of the real-time PCR kit, the DNA extraction steps in this study actually concentrated the plasma DNA with 20-fold. Thus, by reverting the concentrated DNA to the original level, the actual viral loads in these two plasmas were approximately 105, 110, and 600 copies/ml respectively (Table [more...]

UPDATE: Jim Cohn, a Walgreens spokesman, emailed us this statement this morning: "In light of the FDA contacting Pathway Genomics about its genetic test kit and anticipated ongoing discussions between the two parties, we’ve elected not to move forward with offering the Pathway product to our customers until we have further clarity on this matter." Absolutely about time. Dr's have hidden things and used thier control long enough. We have a right to know, even if it is flawed, what makes us who we are. Long ago, the idea that the earth was round was considered dangerous. Then it simply [more...]

HTB – Early infant diagnosis

She concluded that promising POC assays for EID today include: IQuum’s LIAT, SAMBA, CIGHT p24 and possibly CLONDIG’s viral load assay. comment This was an incredibly useful overview and it looks like we can be optimistic about having a POC test for EID in the next couple of years. Other presentations at the conference dealt with the challenges of access to EID. In the same session, Shaffiq Essajee noted that EID access has improved and in some countries more than 50% of exposed infants are tested. But infant testing is usually linked to PMTCT and if coverage is low, so is infant [more...]

Plasmid DNA Extraction Kit

DNA Extraction is the removal of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) from the cells or viruses in which it normally resides. Extraction of DNA is often an early step in many diagnostic processes used to detect bacteria and viruses in the environment as well as diagnosing disease and genetic disorders. The GenQuik™ Plasmid DNA Extraction Kit, utilizing an exclusive membrane technology in the form of convenient spin columns and 96 well plates, makes the isolation of high quality plasmid DNA from recombinant E.coli cultures simple, rapid and cost-effective. For Details on GenQuick ™ Plasmid DNA [more...]

DNA Gel Extraction Kit

The DNA Gel Extraction Kit is designed for the rapid purification of DNA fragments from agarose gels. The kit allows for the removal of agarose, enzymes, dNTPs, ethidium bromide, dyes and detergents from the DNA fragment. The recovered DNA is of a high quality, and is suitable for a number of downstream applications including restriction enzyme digestions, ligations, labeling, hybridizations and sequencing. The kit employs the use of a proprietary resin for DNA purification. This resin is an extremely inert and stable substance and is able to preferentially bind nucleic acids in the presence [more...]

Go to http://www.marrow.org/, fill out the online registration form and get your at home registration kit within a few weeks. Once you receive the kit, follow the simple directions and send back your DNA sample. The sample will then be analyzed and the results are compared to potential recipients. Like myself you may of heard "bone marrow transplant" and had visions of long needles and painful procedures, but getting registered is nothing more than a cheek swab. That's right, a cotton swab to the inside of the cheek. Nothing more than what you see for a DNA test on TV. If you're a match for [more...]

gel extraction protocols - SEQanswers

Hi, I'm hoping to collect some information on how you all handle the gel extraction step in the Illumina sample prep protocol. I have had some issues getting a decent yield of DNA out of 2% TAE agarose gels with the Qiagen QiaexII kit. What kits do you find work particularly well? Any tips for sterile gel prep, visualization, and band excision? Does EtBr cause downstream problems? Does anyone use the new(ish) high voltage electrophoresis buffers (Na-borate/Li-borate/Li-acetate) and/or visual stains (crystal violet/methylene [more...]

Quick Kit for Bacterial Total DNA Isolation

This kit is a very quick and easy one for bacterial total DNA (chromosome and plasmid) isolation with fewer steps. It takes less than 15 min. for sample to be ready for loading on agarose gel electrophoresis. Using this kit, the plasmid takes only one from its three forms after isolation, which a appears as one clear and sharp band in the agarose gel after electrophoresis (in addition to chromosomal band). Making the detection of plasmid in agarose is much easier and also determined, if the sample has more than one plasmid. This kit is able to isolate total DNA from bacteria cell with high [more...]

Evaluation of Five Methods for Total DNA Extraction from Western ...

DNA extraction is a routine step in many insect molecular studies. A variety of methods have been used to isolate DNA molecules from insects, and many commercial kits are available. Extraction methods need to be evaluated for their efficiency, cost, and side effects such as DNA degradation during extraction. Methodology/Principal Findings From individual western corn rootworm beetles, Diabrotica virgifera virgifera, DNA extractions by the SDS method, CTAB method, DNAzol® reagent, Puregene® solutions and DNeasy® column were compared in terms of DNA quantity and quality, cost of materials, [more...]

Genetics and science are everywhere even at the London Toy Fair. I attended the Toy Fair today for PlayLibrary.com and came across the Science and Nature Australia booth. Before I found them, I had asked at the booth selling Science Museum kits whether they had any for forensic science. They didn’t and only had a chemistry set. How old school. Science and Nature, however, has several different science kits and toys. One is Biology Madness that includes instructions for 26 experiments and a DVD with five experiments filmed. The experiments cover many areas of science and include these about [more...]

Research Progress Report I

Without the qPCR results, it is hard to say which clean-up procedure is better, but it seems that both have about the same yield of DNA. There was not enough DNA in the PC+Q sample to run a qPCR. Another thing to consider is that this experiment was performed with a Qiagen gel extraction kit, not a kit designed specifically for DNA clean-up. Using such a kit (they do have one) may possibly yield better results. Future Experiments: I am currently growing up 250mL worth of AFT1 cells for my next ChIP experiment. I will probably be comparing the old bead beater with the new bead [more...]
