DNA isolation / purification Bacteria - Gram positive Lactobacillus

DNA isolation and purification is the first critical step in sample preparation that helps ensure optimal performance of downstream assays like PCR, microarrays, and sequencing. Failure in yielding high-quality DNA would be the major reason that DNA doesn't work for the downstream application. To circumvent this, one should follow the recommended storage conditions to minimize DNA degradation by nucleases and shouldn't overload the purification system.

How can I improve my DNA yield?

The DNA concentration after using this DNA isolation kit is sometimes too low and thus it is not sufficient for my follow-up experiments. How can I improve it?

Upstream tips
Buffers A3 and AW contain guanidine hydrochloride which can form highly reactive compounds when combined with bleach (sodium hypochlorite). so DO NOT add bleach or acidic solutions directly to the sample preparation waste.
Downstream tips
- Include RNAse treatment for 15-20 min.
- Ensure EtOH is completely evaporated off of the column prior to elution. Adjust time from 1min to 5 min at 60`C
- Use prewarmed TE buffer to elute the DNA

Upstream tips
Do not use bleach to clean the inside of the PowerVac™ Manifold or to rinse the PowerVac™ Mini Spin Filter Adapters when attached to the manifold.
Protocol tips
For blood DNA isolation, blood must be collected in EDTA, heparin or citrate anticoagulant tubes to prevent clotting.
