The MasterPure™ Complete DNA and RNA Purification Kit, MasterPure™ DNA Purification Kit, and MasterPure™ RNA Purification Kit use a novel, patent-pending technology that enables efficient purification of intact, high molecular weight DNA or RNA from a wide range of biological materials. Total nucleic acid (TNA), DNA, or RNA can be purified from bacteria, tissue culture cells, frozen or fresh mammalian tissue, paraffin-embedded tissue sections, mouse tail snips, and other biological materials. The protocol for TNA purification involves (1) an enzyme/salt/detergent-mediated cell lysis, (2) protein removal by precipitation, and (3) nucleic acid precipitation and resuspension. To isolate purified DNA, the sample is treated with RNase A; to isolate purified RNA, the sample is treated with RNase-Free DNase I. All manipulations are performed in standard microcentrifuge tubes. The recovered nucleic acids have an A260/280 ratio of 1.8-2.0, and can be used directly in PCR amplification (DNA and TNA) or RT-PCR (RNA). The standard MasterPure™ Complete DNA and RNA Purification Kit contains sufficient reagents for 200 DNA purifications or 100 DNA and 100 RNA purifications.

Figure 3. Consistent purification of DNA, total nucleic acid, and RNA. Five different genomic DNA (Lanes 1-5), total nucleic acid (Lanes 6-10), and total cellular RNA (Lanes 11-15) samples were isolated from frozen bovine liver with the MasterPure™ Complete DNA and RNA Purification Kit. M = kb ladder.
