DNA Fragmentation Kit

The DNA Fragmentation Kit is designed to perform random genomic DNA fragmentation and and other long-chain dsDNA fragmentation via enzymatic treatment followed by blunting of the resulting DNA fragments. The DNA fragmentation kit does not require an additional physical shearing step using an apparatus such as a sonicator. Blunt-end DNA fragments may be ligated with blunt-end vectors. If blunting is not required, the reaction may be stopped after DNA fragmentation is complete.

This kit may also be used to pretreat samples enriched with methylated DNA and to prepare DNA samples for high-speed DNA sequencing.

Materials required but not provided

  • Thermal Cycler (at least 1 cycler is required; 2 cyclers are preferred)
  • Electrophoresis loading buffer

We recommend using a loading buffer that contains a dye (e.g., Orange G) that does not overlap with dsDNA fragmentation bands ranging from 100 bp to 1000 bp in size on the electrophoresis gel. When using BPB or xylene cyanol, please be aware that these dyes overlap with dsDNA fragments in the 100 bp to 1000 bp size range.
