Wizard® Magnetic DNA Purification System for Food Technical Bulletin

Instructions for Use of Product(s)
FF3750, FF3751

Literature # TB284

The Wizard® Magnetic DNA Purification System for Food is designed for DNA purification from a variety of food samples including corn seeds, cornmeal, soybeans, soy flour and soy milk. Processed food such as corn chips, chocolate and chocolate-containing foods, lecithin and vegetable oils also may be used with the appropriate optimized protocols. DNA purified from these samples can be used in PCR-based testing for Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) DNA sequences.

The Wizard® Magnetic DNA Purification System for Food uses MagneSil® Paramagnetic Particles (PMPs). Paramagnetic particles can be considered a “mobile solid phase”. Unlike column-based systems, binding of nucleic acids to magnetic particles can occur in solution, resulting in increased binding kinetics and binding efficiency. Particles also can be completely resuspended during the wash steps of a purification protocol, thus enhancing contact with and removal of contaminants, which increases nucleic acid purity.
