Product description
2.1 The basic principle
The NucleoMag® Trace procedure is based on reversible adsorption of nucleic acids to
paramagnetic beads under appropriate buffer conditions. Lysis is achieved by incubation
of samples with Proteinase K at room temperature or 56 °C. For the adjustment of
binding conditions under which nucleic acids bind to the paramagnetic beads, Buffer
MB2 and the NucleoMag® B-Beads are added to the lysate. After magnetic separation,
the paramagnetic beads are washed twice to remove contaminants and salts using
Wash Buffers MB3 and MB4. Residual ethanol from previous wash steps is removed
by Wash Buffer MB5. Finally, highly purified DNA is eluted with low-salt Elution Buffer
(MB6) and can directly be used for downstream applications. The NucleoMag® Trace
kit can be used either manually or automated on standard liquid handling instruments
or automated magnetic separators.
2.2 Kit specifications
•
NucleoMag® Trace is designed for rapid manual and automated small-scale
preparation of highly pure genomic DNA from buccal swabs or other samples,
for example, dried blood spots or cigarette filters. The kit is designed for use with
NucleoMag® SEP magnetic separator plate (see ordering information) or other
magnetic separation systems (see section 2.3). Manual time for the preparation
of 96 samples is about 120 minutes. The purified DNA can be used directly as
template for PCR, or any kind of enzymatic reactions.
•
NucleoMag® Trace allows easy automation on common liquid handling
instruments or automated magnetic separators. The actual processing time
depends on the configuration of the instrument and the magnetic separation
system used. Typically, 96 samples can be purified in less than 120 minutes
using the NucleoMag® SEP on the automation platform.
•
The kit provides reagents for the purification of up to 7 μg of pure genomic DNA
from suitable samples (typical yields for DNA isolation from buccal swabs: 1–3 μg
DNA) Depending on the elution volume used, concentrations of 10–30 ng/μL can
be obtained.
•
Following lysis of samples with Proteinase K at 56 °C (recommended, optional:
Proteinase K treatment can be performed at RT) NucleoMag® Trace can be
processed completely at room temperature, however, elution at 56 °C will
increase the yield by about 15–20 %.
•
NucleoMag® B-Beads are highly reactive, superparamagnetic beads. The binding
capacity is 0.4 μg of gDNA per 1 μL of NucleoMag® B-Bead suspension, 1 μL of
suspension contains 130 μg of beads

2.3 Magnetic separation systems
For use of NucleoMag® Trace, the use of the magnetic separator NucleoMag® SEP
is recommended. Separation is carried out in a Square-well Block (see ordering
information). The kit can also be used with other common separators.
Magnetic separator
Separation plate or tube
NucleoMag® SEP (MN REF 744900)
Square-well Block (MN REF 740481)
Tecan Te-MagS™
1.5 mL tubes without lid (Sarstedt)
Static magnetic pins
Separators with static magnetic pins, for example, NucleoMag® SEP (for manual use
and for use on liquid handling workstations): This type of separator is recommended
in combination with a suitable microplate shaker for optimal resuspension of the
beads during the washing and elution steps. Alternatively, beads can be resuspended
in the buffer by pipetting up and down several times. For fully-automated use on
liquid handling workstations, a gripper tool is required, the plate is transferred to the
magnetic separator for separation of the beads and transferred to the shaker module
for resuspension of the beads.
Movable magnetic systems
Separators with moving magnetic pins: Magnetic pins / rods are moved from one side
of the well to the other and vice versa. Beads follow this movement and are thus pulled
through the buffer during the wash and elution steps. Separation takes place when the
system stops.
Automated separators
Separators with moving magnets: Magnetic beads are transferred into suitable plates
or tubes. Beads are resuspended from the rod-covered magnets. Following binding,
washing or elution beads are collected again with the rod-covered magnets and
transferred to the next plate or tube.

2.4 Adjusting the shaker settings
When using a plate shaker for the washing and elution steps, the speed settings have
to be adjusted carefully for each specific separation plate and shaker to prevent crosscontamination from well to well. Proceed as follows:
Adjusting shaker speed for binding and wash steps:
•
Load 600 μL dyed water to the wells of the separation plate. Place the plate on
the shaker and start shaking with a moderate speed setting for 30 seconds. Turn
off the shaker and check the plate surface for small droplets of dyed water.
•
Increase speed setting, shake for an additional 30 seconds, and check the plate
surface for droplets again.
•
Continue increasing the speed setting until you observe droplets on top of the
separation plate. Reduce speed setting, check again, and use this setting for the
washing step.
Adjusting shaker speed for the elution step:
•
Load 100–200 μL dyed water to the wells of the collection plate and proceed as
described above.
2.5 Handling of beads
Distribution of beads
A homogeneous distribution of the magnetic beads to the individual wells of the
separation plate is essential for a high well-to-well consistency. Therefore, before
distributing the beads, make sure that the beads are completely resuspended. Shake
the storage bottle well or place it on a vortexer shortly. Premixing magnetic beads with
the binding buffer allows easier homogenous distribution of the beads to the individual
wells of the separation plate. During automation, a premix step before aspirating the
beads / binding buffer mixture from the reservoir is recommended to keep the beads
resuspended.
Magnetic separation time
Attraction of the magnetic beads to the magnetic pins depends on the magnetic
strength of the magnetic pins, the selected separation plate, distance of the separation
plate from the magnetic pins, and the volume to be processed. The individual times for
complete attraction of the beads to the magnetic pins should be checked and adjusted
on each system. It is recommended using the separation plates or tubes specified by
the supplier of the magnetic separator.

Genomic DNA from forensic samples
Washing the beads
Washing the beads can be achieved by shaking or mixing. In contrast to mixing by
pipetting up and down, mixing by shaker or magnetic mixing allows simultaneous mixing
of all samples. This reduces the time and number of tips needed for the preparation.
Resuspension by pipetting up and down, however, is more efficient than mixing by a
shaker or magnetic mix.

2.6 Elution procedures
Purified DNA can be eluted directly with the supplied Elution Buffer MB6. Elution
can be carried out in a volume of ≥ 50 μL. It is essential to cover the NucleoMag®
Beads completely with elution buffer during the elution step. The volume of dispensed
elution buffer depends on the magnetic separation system (e.g., the position of the
pellet inside the separation plate). For efficient elution, the magnetic bead pellet should
be resuspended completely in the elution buffer. For some separators, higher elution
volumes might be necessary to cover the whole pellet.
Elution is possible at room temperature. Yield can be increased by 15–20 % if elution
is performed at 56 °C.

NucleoMag® Trace
Detailed protocol
This protocol is designed for magnetic separators with static pins (e.g., NucleoMag® SEP)
and suitable plate shakers (see section 2.3). It is recommended using a Square-well
Block for separation (see section 1.2). Alternatively, isolation of DNA can be performed
in reaction tubes with suitable magnetic separators. This protocol is for manual use and
serves as a guideline for adapting the kit to robotic instruments.
Before starting the preparation:
•
Check if Proteinase K was prepared according to section 3.
Sample collection
Collect the samples with cotton, Dacron, or C.E.P. swabs. Scrape firmly against
the inside of each cheek several times and let the swabs air dry.
The respective individual should not have consumed food or drink within 30 min
before collection of the sample.
Samples should be processed immediately or stored at 4 °C.
1
Lyse samples
Calculate the amount of lysis stock required: for each sample, 25 μL of
Proteinase K solution + 200 μL Buffer FLB are required. Prepare lysis stock
solution accordingly and vortex.
Note: Never prepare the lysis stock solution more than 15 min before addition
to the samples. Proteinase K tends to self digestion when incubated in Buffer
FLB without substrate.
Transfer 225 μL of the resulting solution to each lysis tube containing the buccal
swab head. Close the individual tubes. Mix by vigorous shaking for 10–15 s.
Spin briefly (15 s; 1,500 x g) to collect any sample at the bottom of the tube.
Note: The buccal swab heads should be submerged into the lysis solution.
Therefore, depending on type or size of buccal swab used the FLB buffer
volume has to be increased to up to 400 μL. Increasing volume of Proteinase K
solution is not required.
Alternatively, perform lysis with Buffer FLB / Proteinase K in a NucleoSpin® Trace
Filter Plate (see ordering information). This plate allows convenient separation
of lysate from swab material by centrifugation and reduces loss of lysate.
Incubate the tubes containing the samples at 56 °C for 1 h or overnight at room
temperature. For optimal lysis, mix occasionally during incubation. Make sure
that the lysis tubes are securely closed.
Note: Other samples (e.g., dried blood spots, cigarette filters) can be processed
accordingly.
MACHEREY-NAGEL – 08/2015, Rev. 05
15
NucleoMag® Trace
2
Separate lysate
Separate swab material from lysed sample. Remove buccal swab and squeeze
out to obtain 225 μL lysate.
When using increased volumes (> 200 μL) of Buffer FLB in step 1 of the
procedure, transfer 225 μL lysed sample to a new Square-well Block for further
processing.
When using the NucleoSpin® Trace Filter Plate, centrifuge the NucleoSpin®
Trace Filter Plate stacked onto a 96 well Square-well Block for 5 min at 5,600 x g
to draw the lysate out of the swab material.
3
Bind DNA to NucleoMag® B-Beads
To each lysate of 225 μL from the previous step, add 14 μL of NucleoMag®
B-Beads and 360 μL of Binding Buffer MB2. Mix by pipetting up and down 6
times and shake for 5 min at room temperature. Alternatively, when processing
the kit without a shaker, pipette up and down 10 times and incubate for 5 min at
room temperature.
Note: NucleoMag® B-Beads and Buffer MB2 can be premixed. Per well to be
processed, mix 14 μL of NucleoMag® B-Beads with 360 μL Buffer MB2. Vortex
briefly. Depending on the dead volume of the reservoir, additional amounts of
bead suspension and binding buffer are required.
Be sure to resuspend the NucleoMag® B-Beads before removing them from the
storage bottle. Vortex storage bottle briefly until a homogenous suspension has
formed.
Separate the magnetic beads against the side of the wells by placing the
Square-well Block on the NucleoMag® SEP magnetic separator. Wait at least
2 min until all the beads have been attracted to the magnets. Remove and
discard supernatant by pipetting.
Note: Do not disturb the attracted beads while aspirating the supernatant. The
magnetic pellet is not visible in this step. Remove supernatant from the opposite
side of the well.
4
Wash with MB3
Remove the Square-well Block from the NucleoMag® SEP magnetic separator.
Add 600 μL Buffer MB3 to each well and resuspend the beads by shaking until
the beads are resuspended completely (5 min). Alternatively, resuspend beads
completely by repeated pipetting up and down (15 times).
16
MACHEREY-NAGEL – 08/2015, Rev. 05
NucleoMag® Trace
Separate the magnetic beads by placing the Square-well Block on the
NucleoMag® SEP magnetic separator. Wait at least 2 min until all the beads
have been attracted to the magnet. Remove and discard supernatant by
pipetting.
5
Wash with MB4
Remove the Square-well Block from the NucleoMag® SEP magnetic separator.
Add 600 μL Buffer MB4 to each well and resuspend the beads by shaking until
the beads are resuspended completely (5 min). Alternatively, resuspend beads
completely by repeated pipetting up and down (15 times).
Separate the magnetic beads by placing the Square-well Block on the
NucleoMag® SEP magnetic separator. Wait at least 2 min until all the beads
have been attracted to the magnet. Remove and discard supernatant by
pipetting.
6
Wash with MB5
Leave the Square-well Block on the NucleoMag® SEP magnetic separator.
Note: Supernatant is colorless, magnetic bead pellet is clearly visible.
Gently add 900 μL Buffer MB5 to each well and incubate for 45–60 s while the
beads are still attracted to magnets. Then aspirate and discard the supernatant.
Note: Do not resuspend the beads in Wash Buffer MB5. This step is to remove
traces of ethanol and eliminates a drying step!
7
Elute DNA
Remove the Square-well Block from the NucleoMag® SEP magnetic separator.
Add desired volume of Buffer MB6 (50–200 μL) to each well of the Square-well
Block and resuspend the beads by shaking 5–10 min at room temperature or
56 °C. Alternatively, resuspend beads completely by repeated pipetting up and
down and incubate for 5–10 min at room temperature or 56 °C.
Separate the magnetic beads by placing the Square-well Block on the
NucleoMag® SEP magnetic separator. Wait at least 2 min until all the beads
have been attracted to the magnets. Transfer the supernatant containing the
purified genomic DNA to the Elution Plate.
Note: Yield can be increased by 15–20 % by using pre-heated elution buffer
(56 °C) or by incubating the bead / elution buffer suspension at 56 °C for 10 min.

Appendix
6.1 Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible cause and suggestions
Elution buffer volume insufficient
•
Beads pellet must be covered completely with elution buffer.
Insufficient performance of elution buffer during elution step
•
Remove residual buffers during the separation steps
completely. Remaining buffers decrease efficiency of
following wash steps and elution step.
Beads dried out
•
Do not let the beads dry as this might result in lower elution
efficiencies.
Partial elution in Wash Buffer MB5 already
Poor DNA
yield
•
Keep the beads on the magnet while dispensing Wash
Buffer MB5. Do not resuspend beads in this buffer and do
not incubate beads in this buffer for more than 2 min, as this
buffer is water-based and might elute the DNA already.
Aspiration of attracted bead pellet
•
Do not disturb the attracted beads while aspirating the
supernatant, especially when the magnetic pellet is not
visible in the lysate.
Incubation after dispensing beads to lysate
•
Mix immediately after dispensing NucleoMag® B-Beads /
Buffer MB2 to the lysate.
Aspiration and loss of beads
•
Time for magnetic separation was too short or aspiration
speed was too high.
Insufficient washing procedure
Low purity
18
•
Use only the appropriate combinations of separator and
plate, for example, Square-well Block in combination with
NucleoMag® SEP.
•
Make sure that beads are resuspended completely during
the washing procedure. If shaking is not sufficient to
resuspend the beads completely mix by repeated pipetting
up and down.

applications
Possible cause and suggestions
Carry-over of ethanol from wash buffers
•
Be sure to remove all of the ethanolic wash solution, as
residual ethanol interferes with downstream applications.

•
See above
Time for magnetic separation too short
•
Carry-over of
beads
Increase separation time to allow the beads to be completely
attracted to the magnetic pins before aspirating any liquid
from the well.
Aspiration speed too high (elution step)
•
High aspiration speed during the elution step may cause
bead carry-over. Reduce aspiration speed for elution step.
