Genomic DNA Purification - Cultured cells

Protocol for Cells

Cell preparation and lysis:

  • Adherent cells: scrape 1-5x106 cultured cells from the culture dish or plate, pellet cells by centrifugation. Completely remove the supernatant by aspiration.

  • Suspension cells: pellet 1-5x106 cells by centrifugation. Completely remove the supernatant by aspiration.

  1. Add 500 μl Lysis Buffer, vortex to resuspend the cell pellet. Homogenize the lysate by passing it through a 20-gauge needle fitted to a DNase free syringe for at least 5 times.

  2. Transfer the homogenized lysate to a gDNA binding column. Centrifuge at 11,000 rpm for 30-60 sec. Discard the flowthrough.

  3. Add 400 μl Lysis Buffer to the column, centrifuge at 11,000 rpm for 30-60 sec. Discard the flowthrough.

  4. Add 700 μl DNA Wash Buffer to the column, centrifuge at 11,000 rpm for 30-60 sec. Discard the flowthrough. Make sure that ethanol is added to washing buffer as instructed before use.

  5. Centrifuge additional 30-60 sec at 11,000 rpm. It is critical to remove residual ethanol for optimal elution. Residual ethanol may interfere subsequent applications.

  6. Place the DNA column in a clean 1.5 ml microcentrifuge tube. Add 50-100 µl pre-heated (70oC waterbath) DNA Elution Buffer or Nuclease-Free water to the center of the column, incubate for 1 min, centrifuge at 11,000 rpm for 30-60 sec to elute the DNA.

The purified DNA is stable in elution buffer or water if stored at -20°C or below.
