QuickExtract™ Selection Guide

Rapid nucleic acid extraction for PCR

The QuickExtract™ products offer a rapid, efficient method to extract genomic DNA and RNA from virtually any sample for PCR-based assays. Most samples can be processed with only two short heating steps (65°C and 98°C).

The QuickExtract products provide an inexpensive method for isolating PCR-ready DNA or RT-PCR-ready RNA from one to hundreds of samples, without centrifugation, spin columns, or the use of any toxic organic solvents. The simple, rapid procedure is ideal for high-throughput assays.
