Genomic DNA Isolation

Isolation of high quality genomic DNA suitable for Next Generation Sequencing as well as a wide variety of genotyping and analytical methods.

CategoryGenomic DNA Isolation
Primary ContactChristopher Krebs, Manager, UM Advanced Genomics Core
Typical Output160 – 500 ug DNA from 10 ml whole blood
5 – 10 ug DNA from 106 cells
1 – 10 ug DNA from 400 ul saliva + stabilizing solution (e.g., Norgen Biotek)
Sample RequirementsUnfrozen whole blood or cell lysates must be delivered on ice.
Frozen blood, cells or lysates must be delivered on dry ice.
Saliva collection tubes from Norgen or Oragene contain stabilizers, compatible with our isolation methods that allow long-term storage and delivery at room temp.
Typical Turnaround48 to 72 hrs. for batches of 100 or less.

Throughput (throughput fluctuates when sample sizes > 200):
blood – 48 samples per week
saliva – 192 samples per week
Critical InformationFor large projects with cumulative sample collection strategies, please consult with the Manager to coordinate workflow.
