Nucleic Acid Extraction Basics

A number of methods for purifying DNA and RNA from biological samples. There are various methods that can be employed, the choice of which to use depends on the sample type as well as the intended downstream uses.

Challenges in Nucleic Acid Extraction

Extracting biological material from some sample types can be technically challenging. This is especially true for environmental samples, which can be highly variable in their composition. These inconsistencies make it tricky to standardize extraction procedures and generate robust data from downstream experiments.

MP Bio offers a range of flexible solutions tailored to meeting your DNA and RNA purification needs.
