2. Materials and equipment


1) DNA extraction reagent

AVL bufferAs a cell lysis buffer (Qiagen, Germany), it enables cell lysis (decomposition and dissolution).
Proteinase KDegrades unnecessary residual proteins from the lysed cell
100% EthanolDNA condensation, precipitation to facilitate beads binding.
MagAttract Suspension G (Beads)As a magnetic bead solution, (Qiagen, Germany) it allows the lysed DNA from the cell to be collected and attached to a surface.
AW1 buffer, AW2 bufferAs a washing buffer, (Qiagen, Germany) it allows unnecessary particle to be washed away from the DNA attached to the beads.
AE bufferAs an elution buffer, (Qiagen, Germany) it washes away the DNA from the beads at the final step of the experiment.

3. Procedure

3. Procedure

1) DNA extraction (refer to QIAamp DNA kit)

① Add 20uL of Proteinase K to 200uL of Sample

② Add 25uL of MagAttract Suspension G(beads) to 200uL of 100% Ethanol preparing according to the number of samples

③ Add 200uL of AVL buffer into tube ① and vortex it for 15-30 seconds

④ Add tube ②’s reagents (100% ethanol + beads) into tube ③ and vortex it for 15-30 seconds

⑤ Collect beads in the sample for 1-2 minutes using a magnet and discard the solution.

⑥ Add 500mL of AW1 buffer and vortex it for 15-30 seconds.

⑦ Collect beads in the sample for 1-2 minutes using a magnet and discard the solution.

⑧ Add 500mL of AW2 buffer and vortex it for 15-30 seconds.

⑨ Collect beads in the sample for 1-2 minutes using a magnet and throw the solution.

⑩ Dry for 1-2 minutes with the cap of sample open.

⑪ Add 500mL of AE buffer, vortex it for 15-30 seconds, and wait for 1 minute at room temperature.

⑫ Attract beads in the sample for 1-2 minutes using a magnet and collect the *solution.

Final Extension72℃05:001


There is a Master mix to use for each experiment. Each Master mix has a recommended temperature, time, and the number of cycles. You will experiment within these ranges. The conditions are determined according to the influencing factors, such as the size of the DNA for the experiment or the length of the primer.

4) After PCR is completed, check the amplified PCR product by using agarose gel electrophoresis
