DNA IQ system
AnovelapproachtoquantificationisusedinthecommerciallyavailableDNAIQTM Iso- lation System (Promega Corporation). The isolation method is based on salting-out and binding to silica: a very specific amount of silica coated beads is added to the extraction and these bind a maximum amount of DNA; therefore, when the DNA is eluted from the beads the maximum concentration is known. It has the advantage of combining the extractionandquantificationstepsbuthasthedisadvantageofnotbeinghumanspecific.
