Product information "SampleIN™ Direct PCR Kit"

SampleIN™ Direct PCR Kit is a premium tool for a fast direct PCR eliminating the need of tedious template purification. The kit is excellent for direct PCR from mouse tail or ear, mammalian tissues, hair follicle, buccal swabs and blood.

Rapid 15 min DNA extraction using DPK Lysis and Protease Buffers in a single tube generates PCR template extract which is further amplified under fast cycling conditions with a hot-start Taq master mix that includes red dye for direct gel loading.
In a 2% agarose TAE gel the red dye migrates with~350 bp DNA, in 1% agarose TAE gel with ~ 600 bp DNA fragments.
The ALLin™ HS Red Taq Mastermix includes a hot start Taq DNA Polymerase what ensures high yield, specific, low background amplification. Mix components allow for a fast PCR cycling and increase success when working with complex templates or multiplexing. Generated A-tailed PCR products are suitable for ligating into TA cloning vectors, sequencing and other applications.

Performing direct PCR using any direct PCR kit, and especially the hoighQu SampleIN™ Direct PCR Kit offers a convenient and efficient approach for amplifying DNA without the need for prior DNA extraction or purification steps. Here are the steps to successfully perform direct PCR using our PCR kit:

Sample preparation: Collect the sample to be used directly in PCR. This can include various sample types such as bacteria colony, mammalian tissue, mammalian blood, or plant material. Ensure proper handling and storage conditions to maintain sample integrity. The less the better, as overloading the reaction with the crude sample material may inhibit the PCR reaction.

PCR reaction setup: Perform short sample lysis with the reagents supplied in the PCR Kit, and prepare the PCR reaction mix according to the manufacturer's instructions. Add only primers to the reaction mix with your lysed template material, as the dNTPs, buffer and the PCR enzyme is already included in the master mix supplied with the PCR kit.

PCR cycling: Set up the PCR cycling program according to the desired amplification conditions. Optimize the annealing temperature and extension time based on the primers and target amplicon size.

PCR analysis: After completing the PCR cycling, analyse the PCR products using gel electrophoresis, the loading dye is premixed with the PCR master mix, so you do not need to add any before loading the samples on the gel."

StainIN™ GREEN Nucleic Acid Stain
StainIN™ GREEN Nucleic Acid Stain is a significantly safer alternative to ethidium bromide. It is same easy to use, 4X as sensitive (under Blue LED) and much more secure. More economical as other green dyes, this stain can be also used and disposed with less environmental and health concerns compared to ethidium bromide. It is a fluorescent dye that allows detection of >0,1 ng of DNA in both agarose and polyacrylamide gels. It binds to both dsDNA, ssDNA and RNA and emits green fluorescence when bound to DNA and red fluorescence when bound to RNA detectable under the UV or Blue light and documented with same filters as similar green dyes. StainIN™ GREEN is ideal for DNA extraction from gels for cloning. Smaller than ethidium bromide carcinogenicity has been proved by Ames-test. Mammalian cell mutagenicity tests, both mouse marrow erythrocyte micronucleus and spermatocyte chromosomal aberration tests gave negative mutagenicity results. Carcinogenicity and toxicity of the widely used Ethidium Bromide (EtBr) is one of the biggest safety and environmental problems in the labs where gel electrophoresis is a daily routine. The less toxic nucleic acid dyes address this problem and minimize concerns. The StainIN™ GREEN (SYBR Green-like stains alternative), (SYBR® Green is a registered trade mark of Molecular Probes Inc.) and StainIN™ eco-RED Nucleic Acid Stains by highQu provide a much less-carcinogenic, significantly safer alternative to EtBr while delivering even several times higher detection sensitivity. Same like EtBr, these stains are used during the process of electrophoresis in an agarose gel or PAAG and in the electrophoresis running buffer. Nucleic acid stains are typically divided into two groups – they are either intercalating dyes or minor groove binders. The StainIN™ GREEN and StainIN™ eco-RED Nucleic Acid Stains belong to the group of intercalating dyes that bind to NA and produce the fluorescence signal. Same like many other suppliers of similar products, highQu retains the right to keep the precise chemical information undisclosed and proprietary. The StainIN™ GREEN Nucleic Acid Stain as well as the StainIN™ eco-RED Nucleic Acid Stain are both supplied in water. Detailed safety information is available in MSDS sheets of the stains. Despite proven less mutagenicity, all nucleic acid stains, including SYBR® Green or other shall be handled with care. Used electrophoresis buffer with a stain as well as melted gels shall be run through approved (carbon) filters. If the absence of residual fluorescence is confirmed, the liquids can be disposed with plenty of water down the drain. Alternatively, all used liquids can be autoclaved as the StainIN™ GREEN and StainIN™ eco-RED Nucleic Acid Stains degrade during the long exposure to above 100ºC temperature. The safety office shall be consulted periodically to match local regulations, as they vary and change.

ALLin™ HS Red Taq Mastermix
highQu ALLin™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase is the superior sensitive enzyme. The activity at room temperature is blocked by small molecular inhibitor. Enzyme becomes active only after heating what allows for highly specific and extremely sensitive amplification, no primer dimer formation and no background. In combination with the optimized ALLin™ buffer enzyme provides higher success rates in demanding PCR applications like amplification of crude, complex or longer templates and fast cycling. ALLin™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase has the same PCR accuracy like Taq DNA Polymerase, 4.5 x 10^4 (nucleotides incorporated before the error occurs) and produces A-tailed products suitable for ligating into TA cloning vectors. The convenience of ALLin™ Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase is maximized by the use of 2X Red colored Mastermix providing the additional advantage of reduced pipetting and minimized errors. The mastermix is even supplied with PCR Water, and the only thing to add is the template with primers. ALLin™ HS Red Taq Mastermix, 2X is premixed with red dye and density reagents for direct loading on the gels after the PCR. In a 2% agarose TAE gel the dye migrates with~350 bp DNA, in 1% agarose TAE gel with ~ 600 bp DNA fragments. ALLin™ HS Red Taq Mastermix, 2X is also a key component in highQu SampleIN™ Direct PCR Kit (DPK0101/5), ensuring outstanding PCR results with crude samples.
