Minute™ Protein/Nucleic Acid Extraction Kit from Gels (50 Preps)
Passive elution and electroelution are the most common methods for extracting proteins/nucleic acid from polyacrylamide/agarose gels. Protein extraction by passive elution usually takes overnight incubation. Eluted proteins are significantly diluted and require further concentration. Protein extraction by electroelution is faster (30 minutes to 2 hours) than passive elution, but it requires a special elution device that works less effectively for larger proteins (>70 kDa). The electro buffer usually contains detergent and other chemicals at a concentration that may interfere with downstream applications. Here we feature a rapid and instrument-free protein/nucleic acid extraction kit. Proteins/nucleic acid can be extracted from gels in less than 10 minutes with a high yield. The elution buffer can be a detergent-containing buffer or pure water depending on the method of gel staining. The elution volume is between 10 and 200 µl. Multiple gel pieces can be processed in a single tube, and the final protein concentration is relatively high.
