    • 400 µL of Lysis Solution AS,
    • 5 µL of RNase A,

Note

For increased DNA concentration, use a lower volume of Elution Buffer. Elution with volumes of less than 50 µL is not recommended because this can be insufficient to entirely wet the membrane resulting in low DNA recovery. For increased DNA yield, use a higher volume of Elution Buffer (100 µL).

Elution Buffer pre-heated to 55 °С facilitates optimal recovery of bound DNA. Elution with Elution Buffer equilibrated to room temperature is also acceptable but DNA recovery is significantly lower (up to 30–50 %).

To maximize DNA recovery, two-step elution is recommended.

If necessary, DNA can be eluted with deionized water.

When measuring the DNA concentration, dilute the sample only with TE buffer pH 8.5 or Elution Buffer supplied with the kit. Otherwise, DNA concentration and purity (OD260 and OD260/OD280, respectively) can be estimated incorrectly.

Storage of purified DNA: for long-term storage −20 °C, for short‑term storage +4 °С
