photoThis company offers Phase Lock Gel in a convenient syringe package for rapid and simple phenol/chloroform extractions of nucleic acids.
     Ideal for the isolation of small volumes, it increases the yield of nucleic acids up to 30 percent. Improvements in the purity of extracted DNA and RNA are due to the physical separation from the interphase material.
     During centrifugation, Phase Lock Gel forms a solid barrier between the aqueous and the organic phases, sealing harmful phenol fumes beneath this barrier. The acqueous phase can then be recovered simply by decanting. Even minute amounts of plasmid DNA, genomic DNA, DNA from gels, total DNA, Lambda DNA and phage and M13 DNA can be recovered quickly and safely.
