Preparation of cleared forensic sample lysates—NucleoSpin Forensic Filters
NucleoSpin Forensic Filters are the simplest and cleanest solution for lysis incubation and post-lysis separation of lysates from solid sample carriers. The carriers are transferred to the NucleoSpin Forensic Filters and incubated with your choice of lysis buffer. The total volume should not exceed 800 µl. After incubation, the NucleoSpin Forensic Filters are centrifuged for at least 1 min to release the lysates into the provided 2-ml collection tubes with a lid. The baskets containing the solid sample carrier can be discarded. The lysate flowthrough can be used for further analysis or stored. These filters make it possible to avoid manual transfer of sample carriers into or out of the lysis buffer, minimizing the risks of cross-contamination or loss of lysate.
