Isolation of genomic DNA from insects and crustaceans—NucleoSpin DNA Insect

The NucleoSpin DNA Insect kit is designed for the purification of genomic DNA from fresh, frozen, dried, or ethanol-preserved insect or crustacean samples. The isolated DNA can be used for genotyping, sequencing, or other common applications. The kit utilizes NucleoSpin Bead Tubes Type D (steel beads; included in the kit) in combination with a common disruption device, e.g., an MN Bead Tube Holder or a swing mill, to lyse different cell types and tissues using a single procedure. NucleoSpin Bead Tubes can also be ordered separately if needed.
