The Invisorb® Spin Tissue Mini Kit simplifies genomic DNA purification from a variety of tissue types (e.g. muscle, liver, heart, brain, mouse tail or insects) and cells. PCR inhibitors, which can interfere with the amplification reaction, are efficiently removed. Pure DNA is eluted in 50 – 200 µl EDTA-free buffer or water and can be used in subsequent downstream applications, such as PCR, real-time PCR, SNP detection, Southern Blotting, sequencing and cloning.
- Optimized protocols for a variety of starting materials, complete removal of contaminants and inhibitors
- More intact DNA: no DNA degradation by using a gentle, low-salt (non-chaotropic) buffer system
- For In Vitro Diagnostic Use (CE-IVD)*
Starting Material Average Yield Preparation Time 0.5 - 40 mg tissue
1.2 cm rodent tails
10 –106 eukaryotic cells
up to 50 μg DNA from tissue
up to 10 μg DNA from cells
15 min after lysis
The Invisorb Spin Tissue Mini Kit uses a special buffer and Proteinase S for efficient lysis of the tissue samples. After a centrifugation step the precleaned lysate is mixed with the binding buffer and transferred onto the spin filter column. The DNA binds to the membrane, impurities are washed away and reproducible ultra-pure DNA is eluted. The purified DNA is ready to use for subsequent downstream applications or can be stored at –20 °C for subsequent use:
- real-time PCR
- RFLP analysis
- restriction enzyme digestion
- SNP detection
*) Compliance with EU Directive 98/79/EC on in vitro medical devices. Products which are CE-marked according to the IVD-Directive can be used for diagnostic applications in countries where this directive is recognized
1. Higher DNA yields using Proteinase S
DNA was isolated using Proteinase S and Proteinase K from 30 mg of rat liver. For both protocols the DNA was eluted in 200 µl Elution Buffer and 5 µl of the eluates were analyzed on a 0.8 % agarose gel stained with ethidium bromide. The Proteinase S treatment resulted in higher DNA yields. (Marker - GeneRuler™ DNA Ladder, Fermentas)
2. More intact DNA
Equal amounts of rat tissues were used to isolate DNA using the Invisorb Spin Tissue Mini Kit (I, non-chaotropic buffers). For comparison with chaotropic chemistry an equivalent kit from a major supplier (c) was evaluated. Standard protocols for both kits were used with comparable conditions for Proteinase K treatment. For both kits the DNA was eluted in 200 µl Elution Buffer and 5 µl of the eluates were analyzed on a 0.8 % agarose gel stained with ethidium bromide.
3. Sex determination of birds
DNA was isolated with the Invisorb Spin Tissue Mini Kit from quill for sex determination of birds; and 1/10 of the eluted DNA was amplified and analyzed on a 2 % agarose gel.
Lane 1+4: 100 bp ladder
Lane 2: no fragment appears, no femal bird
Lane 3: 1 fragment appears: identifies the bird as a male one

4. Detection of points mutations in the tumor suppresor gene p16 by SSCP-PCR
DNA was isolated from paraffin embedded tissue of 4 different samples with Invisorb Spin Tissue Mini Kit and 1/10 of the eluted DNA was analyzed in a nondenatured 10 % PAA gel by silver staining:
Lane 1: negative control
Lane 2,3: sample 1
Lane 4,5: sample 2
Lane 6,7: sample 3
Lane 8,9: sample 4
For each sample DNA was isolated from tumor tissue (lane 2,4,6,8) and normal tissue (lane 3,5,7,9).
