QIAamp UCP DNA Micro Kit
For isolation of ultraclean genomic DNA from small amounts of blood, swabs, cells or tissue
The QIAamp UCP DNA Micro Kit enables easy DNA purification from small amounts of blood, tissues, cells and swabs. An integral ultraclean treatment removes residual DNA contamination from the QIAamp UCP MinElute column. The procedure can be automated on QIAcube Connect.
The QIAamp UCP DNA Micro Kit is intended for molecular biology applications. This product is not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
The QIAamp UCP DNA Micro Kit is suitable for a wide range of sample materials, such as small volumes of blood, animal and human cells, swabs and small tissue samples. The kit combines the selective binding properties of a silica-based membrane with flexible elution volumes of 20–100 µl, allowing high concentration of nucleic acid.
Special ultraclean treatment removes residual DNA contamination from the QIAamp UCP MinElute column, preventing DNA contamination from influencing downstream results (see figure “Minimal background compared with other suppliers”). Eluted nucleic acids are ready for use in downstream applications including next-generation sequencing (see figure “Performance of ultraclean DNA in NGS”).
The QIAamp UCP DNA Micro Kit is designed for purification of ultraclean genomic DNA from small amounts of blood, swabs, cells or tissue. The kit provides fast and easy methods for purification of genomic, mitochondrial and microbial DNA from small sample volumes or sizes. The kit combines the selective binding properties of a silica-based membrane with elution volumes of between 20 and 100 µl.
DNA yield and purity obtained with the QIAamp UCP DNA Micro Kit are comparable to known methods, but with very little background of foreign DNA (see figure “Comparable yields”).
A simple workflow allows the purification of ultraclean DNA from whole blood, cells, swabs or tissue (see flowchart “QIAamp UCP DNA Micro procedure”).
Samples are lysed under highly denaturing conditions at elevated temperatures in the presence of proteinase K and Buffer AUT. DNA is then bound to the QIAamp UCP MinElute column membrane and two wash steps efficiently wash away contaminants. DNA is eluted from the QIAamp UCP MinElute column using a small volume of Buffer AUE or ultraclean PCR water. Since the elution volume is small, the eluted DNA will be concentrated.
DNA purified using the QIAamp UCP DNA Micro Kit is suitable for use in NGS and other downstream applications requiring the use of ultraclean DNA.
