Mag-Bind® Plant DNA DS 96 Kit


High-throughput DNA isolation from plant seed & leaf tissues using magnetic beads.

  • Straightforward, rapid, and reliable procedure
  • Adaptable in most robotic liquid handling platforms
  • Process 96 samples in less than 1 hour
  • Reliable results from a variety of plant samples

Mag-Bind® Plant DNA DS 96 Kit allows rapid and reliable isolation of high-quality genomic DNA from plants and other tissues that are particularly difficult to lyse or very high in polysaccharide content. The lysis and binding buffers are specifically designed to minimize co-purification of polysaccharides and polyphenols. Up to 96 samples of 50 mg wet tissue (or 15 mg dry tissue) can be processed in parallel in less than 1 hour.

The system combines Omega Bio-tek’s E.Z.N.A.® buffer chemistry, which eliminates the need for organic solvents, with the convenience of Mag-Bind® particles to eliminate polysaccharides, phenolic compounds, and enzyme inhibitors from plant tissue lysates. This kit is designed for manual or fully automated high-throughput preparation of genomic, chloroplast, and mitochondrial DNA. Purified DNA is suitable for PCR, restriction digestion, Next Generation Sequencing, and hybridization applications. There are no organic extractions, thereby reducing consumables and decreasing hands-on time to allow multiple samples to be processed in parallel.

For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

DNA Yield Comparison

Figure 1. DNA was extracted from approximately 50 mg of leaf sample using Omega Bio-tek’s Mag-Bind® Plant DNA DS 96 Kit (M1130) and Company Q’s kit following manufacturer’s recommended protocols. Purified DNA was quantified using Promega’s QuantiFluor® dsDNA system and normalized per mg of input plant material.

Molecular Weight Analysis

Figure 2  TapeStation® analysis of genomic DNA purified from barley using Omega Bio-tek’s Mag-Bind® Plant DNA DS 96 kit (M1130). TapeStation® analysis software estimates the molecular weight of the purified DNA to be ~30kb.

Yield and Quality

Figure 3.1  Genomic DNA was purified from 50 mg canola leaf with the Mag-Bind Plant DNA DS 96 Kit. DNA concentration determined by optical density measurements with NanoDrop® 2000c. Total elution volume was 100 µL.

Size Analysis

Figure 3.2  Genomic DNA was purified from 50 mg canola leaf with the Mag-Bind Plant DNA DS 96 Kit. 5 µL eluate DNA was analyzed on a 1% Agarose gel.

Inhibitor-Free DNA

Figure 3.3  Genomic DNA was extracted from 30 mg canola leaf using the Mag-Bind Plant DNA DS 96 Kit (n=4). Real-time PCR with canola-specific primers was performed on triplicates of 10-fold and 100-fold dilutions of DNA. The ΔCt value between 100-fold and 10-fold was ~3.3 for all the samples, demonstrating good PCR efficiency without inhibition.

Is it possible to obtain a high molecular weight using the Mag-Bind Plant DNA DS 96 Kit?

It is challenging to extract high molecular weight DNA from plants. The pre-processing step with plants involves bead-beating, and bead-beating shears the DNA up. We recently did TapeStation® analysis on M1130 extracted plant DNA and found the size was roughly 20 kb.

What is the difference between M1128 and M1130?

The Mag-Bind Plant DNA DS 96 Kit (M1130) is an improved version of the Mag-Bind Plant DNA Plus 96 Kit (M1128). It has been reworked to better handle difficult samples (DS = Difficult Samples) that are rich in polysaccharides, phenolic compounds, and enzyme inhibitors from plant tissue lysates.

I am getting low 260/230 absorbance ratios using the Mag-Bind Plant DNA DS 96 Kit. How can I improve this?

The low A260/A230 ratios indicate two things. First is chaotropic salt carryover from the extraction. The second is sample-related carryover (polyphenols, polysaccharides etc.). If it is salt carryover, the ratio can be bettered by increasing the number of wash steps (3 SPM washes instead of 2). If it is a contaminant from the sample itself, we would recommend adding 1% β -mercaptoethanol and freshly prepared 2% PVP to CSPL buffer. PVP forms complexes with polyphenols and allows them to be separated from nucleic acids. β-mercaptoethanol is a strong denaturing agent and can help get rid of the polysaccharides.
