Details

Description

  • Potent enzyme that digests the polysaccharide backbone of agarose yielding ethanol soluble oligosaccharieds.
  • Resulting carbohydrate molecules no longer gel or interfere with subsequent DNA manipulations.
  • Ideal for quantitative recovery of high molecular weight DNA from low-melting agarose gels.
  • Simple, quantitative recovery of intact nucleic acids from agarose gels.
  • May be used to purify large (>50 Kb) and small (<50Kb) DNA fragments from agarose gels.
  • DNase- and RNase-free.
  • Can be heat inactivated (2 minutes at 95°C or 15 minutes at 65°C).
