ig® HMW DNA Extraction Kit is designed for isolation of high-molecular-weight (HMW) DNA from white blood cells, plant tissue and Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. DNA purified with this system is particularly suitable for long-read sequencing platforms.

Key Benefits

  • Optimized and quick protocol with no hazardous/toxic chemicals
  • Simplified preparation steps for extracting high-purity HMW DNA upto 1 megabase
  • Best for long-read sequencing
