Plant Prep Adem-Kit
Introduction
1. Description
Plant Prep Adem-Kit is designed for rapid automated purification of DNA from plant
materials. The DNA purified with the Plant Prep Adem-Kit is of high quality and free of
proteins, nucleases, and other contaminants or inhibitors.
It is therefore suitable for direct use in many different downstream applications such as PCR
(polymerase chain reaction).
2. Product Component and storage conditions
Kit Content: Each Plant Prep Adem-Kit contains sufficient reagents to
perform 96 samples using the following standard protocol.

NOTE 1! Properly stored Kits are guaranteed until the expiry date. Note that
shipping is realized at room temperature and will not affect stability. All
components of the kit have been prepared under nucleases free conditions and
have been thoroughly tested to ensure optimal performance.
NOTE 2! Storage conditions
Before using the kit, it is recommended to take out the reagents in advance and
check if there are any precipitates. If the Buffers present precipitates place
them at room temperature and eventually put them at +37°C.
IMPORTANT! Do not freeze the magnetic particles.
3. Equipment and reagents to be supplied by the user
When working with chemicals, always wear a suitable lab coat, disposable
gloves, and protective goggles. To avoid contamination of your sample,
wear face mask.


Prepare a 70% ethanol solution

Prepare the Washing Buffers I & II before first use:
1. Add 32mL of 96-100% ethanol to the bottle containing 24mL of
Washing Buffer I. Homogenize the solution.
2. Add 39mL of 96-100% ethanol to the bottle containing 17mL of
Washing Buffer II. Homogenize the solution.
NOTE! Washing Buffer I & II are delivered concentrated. Before the
first use, you have to add ethanol in the bottle in the indicated
proportion.
2. Perform lysis
1. Place the ground sample at the bottom of a microtube.
2. Add 300µl of Plant Lysis Buffer to the microtube containing the
ground sample.

3. Add 4µL of RNase.
4. Close the tube, mix well with a vortex and place it in a thermomixer,
then incubate at +56°C and 1000rpm for 60minutes.
IMPORTANT! You can use a heat block or a water bath instead of a
thermomixer.
5. Centrifuge the lysat 20 minutes at 5600g.
6. Perform DNA extraction with 150µl of supernatant.
3. Instruction for AutoMag Instrument with 12-pin
magnet head and 96 deep well plates for DNA
extraction from forensic samples
These instructions are for the DNA extraction from 150μl of lysate using
Plant Prep Adem-Kit (Cat.# 06220) and the AutoMag Instrument (Cat.#
21101) with a 12-pin magnet head and 96 deep well plates.
AutoMag Instrument is a low-to-medium-throughput purification system
with a magnetic particle processor for DNA purification kits. With the
AutoMag Instrument customers can process up to 12 samples per run
with a working volume up to 1ml. In addition, it is possible to run two
purification methods sequentially without interruption, raising the
throughput up to 24 samples.

4. Fill the Elution strip as follows.
Make sure that the elution strip is placed in the correct direction into the
elution block. Ensure that the perforated end is facing towards the user
and the Elution Buffer is pipetted into the correct wells.

6. Start the Plant Prep protocol with the AutoMag Instrument and
load the plate and elution strip.
Switch ON the AutoMag Instrument and make sure that you are using
the 12-pin magnet head and heating block. Start the Plant Prep
protocol. Insert the plate and elution strip into the instrument as
indicated on the AutoMag Instrument display and press OK. Make sure
that the elution strip is placed in the correct direction into the elution
block. Ensure that the perforated end is facing towards the user.
7. After the run is completed, remove the plate and store the purified
DNA.
When the protocol is completed, remove the plate and elution strip
according to the instructions on the AutoMag Instrument display and
turn off the instrument.

NOTE! Store or analyze the purified DNA accordingly. If DNA is not
analyzed immediately, store it at 4°C for up to 24 hours. For longer
period, consult laboratory guidelines. Freezing samples at -20°C has
been shown to preserve DNA for longer periods of time.
