Nucleic Acid Sample Preparation

Nucleic Acid extraction from a sample is often the first step in many molecular biology procedures and thus the quality and reliability of the extraction method is a key factor in the success of any downstream analysis.

Commercial nucleic acid extraction kits and platforms have become ubiquitous because of their ease of use, reliability and repeatability. However, not all kits are the same!
