The new MagSi-DNA Vegetal kit brings the convenience and cost effectiveness of magnetic bead technology to the world of plant genomics. Whether you work with DNA extracted from flowers, grain crops, fruits, vegetables, trees, or other plant materials, MagSi-DNA Vegetal is designed to maximize your effectiveness.  Flexible protocols can be adjusted to optimize your specific plant extraction protocol requirements.  The system is fully compatible with high-throughput robotic liquid handling systems, as well as smaller-scale plant genomics projects.

MagSi-DNA Vegetal combines two components that work synergistically to provide seamless and efficient capture of purified DNA from nearly all plant materials.  First, our proprietary VG Lysis Buffer is extremely aggressive in breaking down difficult plant specimens, including seeds, leaves, fruits, and all other plant tissues.  Second our highly efficient magnetic bead technology is optimized to work together with the buffer.  As a result, MagSi-DNA Vegetal "bead-plus-buffer" system provides quantitative capture of plant...
