Quick and Easy DNA Extraction

UAGC offers a ‘Quick and Easy' DNA extraction as a low-cost option for certain sample types. 

Sample Input

We provide you bar-coded tubes with buffer, add your sample and return to UAGC. 

Expected Results

Genomic DNA suitable for downstream testing in transgenic mouse assays or other robust screening assays. 

Click on the 'Details' tab above for rate information and how to submit samples.

Sample Preparation Details

For mouse genotyping add 2-4mm of tail tip tissue directly to the buffer in the provided tubes. Seal tightly and return to UAGC. 


How to Get Started with your Sample Submission: 

  • Go to Sample Lifecycle Manager (SLM) and select 'DNA Extraction' as your workflow.
  • Upload your sample information.
  • Click submit tubes
  • Record and attach the 4 letter code at the end of your SLM submission to your samples and send or deliver to UAGC. 
  • In the messages tab enter 'Quick and Easy DNA Extraction' and any post-extraction details (i.e. Transgenic Mouse assay). If an extraction method is not indicated we will contact you before sample processing. 

Samples are taken directly from cell lysis to PCR saving time and resources.
