"Peformagene kits have greatly benefited our project. To be able to get high quality and quantity bankhar DNA through such a quick and easy process, even while wearing thick gloves in the Mongolian winter, is truly remarkable."

Animal DNA Preparation – In-house

Maximize animal DNA recovery for your genetic applications.

The critical step in any animal genetic application is the extraction of DNA from collected samples. Maximize the recovery of DNA from your Performagene samples with the PG-AC extraction kit.

  • Optimized chemistry for maximum recovery of animal DNA from samples collected with Performagene
  • High quantity of DNA allows for multiple assays from a single sample
  • Proven to provide consistent results with high molecular weight (greater than 23 kb)
  • DNA suitable for a wide range of downstream applications including microarray and sequencing
  • Very low bacterial content resulting in fewer failed samples
  • Bar-coded for integration into laboratory information systems
  • Performagne samples can be banked for 1 year at room temperature or frozen for longer term storage. These samples can withstand multiple freeze thaw cycles.
  • Convenient workflow with complete technical support from collection through extraction
  • Tube integrates into lab automation systems to increase efficiency, minimize sample handling steps and reduce handling errors

Animal DNA Purification Reagents

There are two reagent packages optimized for Performagene.

Product Code Sample Preparation Volume Number of Preparations
PG-AC1 (microarray, sequencing) 0.5 mL 1000
PG-AC2 (PCR, microsatellite) 0.1 mL 1000
PG-AC3 (PCR, microsatellite) 0.1 mL 25
PG-AC4 (microarray, sequencing) 0.5 mL 25

We recommend the following protocols to improve your sample preparation:
