DNA DepotT Family DNA ID Card
With this experiment kit, students will learn how DNA can be extracted from parents and children and stored on a Family DNA ID Card™ for reference and analysis. Once cheek cells have been obtained, a series of steps are performed to extract the DNA and precipitate it from the solution. After this process is completed, DNA can then be transferred to the Family DNA ID Card. Both stained and unstained DNA samples can be stored on the card. The kit includes a lysis buffer, cotton swabs, NaCl, protease enzyme, Methylene Blue Plus™ stain, calibrated transfer pipets, microtipped transfer pipets, test tubes, and a Family DNA ID Card. Up to six DNA extractions can be done with the kit.
