DNAstable Plus is a unique storage medium that preserves purified genomic DNA, at room temperature, in liquid format for up to one year, and as a drydown for longer storage periods. Dried DNAstable Plus allows for long-term stabilization of DNA samples with easy sample recovery by simply adding water.
DNAstable Plus enables you to preserve, store and ship your purified DNA samples at room temperature in liquid and dry state. It offers workflow flexibility with thermostability at even extreme temperatures and has the ability to handle high concentrations of DNA. Recovery from dry matrix is achieved within minutes by simply adding water. Sample is ready for any downstream analysis without need for any additional purification step.
This product is for R&D use only, not for drug, household, or other uses. Please consult the Safety Data Sheet for information regarding hazards and safe handling practices.
DNAstable Plus reagent can be stored at 4 °C to 20 °C until ready for use. The sample pouch allows for dry storage even in uncontrolled humidity environments and serves as an alternative to storage in a dry storage cabinet. The moisture barrier foil bag should be opened just before use.
Notes on Sample Preparation
Purification Techniques — Most standard molecular biology techniques and/or commercially available kits are compatible with DNAstable Plus. Purified DNA that is DNase-free and resuspended in water or a low salt buffer can be used directly with DNAstable Plus.
Determining Yield — The concentration of the DNA sample should be determined prior to sample application into DNAstable Plus. Although not essential, applying a known amount of DNA into DNAstable Plus for storage can facilitate sample retrieval and subsequent applications. For optimal results, store between 1 ng and 250 μg of total DNA per tube in liquid format, or up to 50 μg in dry format.
5. Cover and store samples at room temperature protected from moisture. After complete sample drying, plates should be re-sealed with aluminum foil seals.
DNA stored dry in DNAstable Plus can be recovered by the addition of water or aqueous buffer. Samples are ready for downstream applications without the need for further purification.
