The MasterAmp™ Buccal Swab DNA Extraction Kits are easy-to-use, single-tube
systems for the rapid preparation of DNA from human or other mammalian buccal
(cheek) cells for PCR assays. The format allows processing of one to hundreds
of samples in less than an hour. Yields range from 0.5 to 3.0 µg of DNA
per sample, enough to perform several PCR amplifications. The kits include sterile
Buccal Swab Brushes, aliquots of DNA Extraction Solution, and complete protocols
for isolation of DNA from buccal samples.
Figure 1. Multiplex amplification of DNA purified using the MasterAmp™ Buccal
Swab DNA Extraction Kit. Panel A, human genomic DNA was purified from
four individuals using the MasterAmp Buccal Swab Kit and the DNA was separated
on a 1% agarose gel. Panel B, multiplex amplification of five sets of CHLC
markers was performed and the samples were resolved on a 3% agarose gel.
