KAZU DNA Extraction Buffer

The KAZU DNA Extraction Buffer allows for the rapid extraction of genomic DNA from plant leaves for the downstream amplification of targets of interest by PCR.


  • Quick - 10 minutes per prep
  • Great for many applications: PCR, qPCR, inverse PCR
  • Ideal for high throughput (plate-based) applications
  • Nontoxic and stable - Does not contain phenol or chloroform, and can be used to store samples long term

DNA extraction is typically performed using buffers such as a CTAB or PVP, or kits that often contain toxic ingredients such as phenol and chloroform, require a long time commitment (over 3 hours), and require the use of many tubes and kits. Non-phenol and non-chloroform Column-based DNA extraction kits are available for rapid extraction (less than 1 hour) but these kits are expensive. The KAZU DNA Extraction Buffer offers a non toxic solution that takes only 10 minutes per reaction, and is compatible with high throughput methods.
