DNA isolation / purification Tissue - heart

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.

What DNA isolation kit would work for insect samples?

Hello everyone! I am currently using different DNA isolation kits to extract DNA from insects. Even though I am able to successfully extract DNA I would like to maximize the yield. Do you have any tips that might help me with that even if the kits are not specifically designed for insect samples?

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
