General description

The REDExtract-N-Amp Blood PCR Kits contain all of the reagents necessary to rapidly extract host genomic DNA from whole blood and amplify targets of interest by direct PCR (polymerase chain reaction). This novel extraction system eliminates the need for any type of purification, organic extraction, centrifugation, heating, filtration or alcohol precipitation. The kit also includes a PCR ReadyMix, specially formulated for amplification directly from the extract. This formulation uses an antibody based hot start, for specific amplification. The REDExtract-N-Amp Blood PCR Kit contains a tracking dye that allows for convenient direct loading of PCR reactions onto agarose gels for analysis.


REDExtract-N-Amp Blood PCR Kit has been used to extract genomic DNA from blood samples, peripheral blood leukocytes, parasites and endocervical swab eluates of mice. It has also been used to perform polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using oligonucleotide primers.

Features and Benefits

  • Efficient 8 minute prep allows greater speed and throughput
  • No need for organic extraction, centrifugation or alcohol precipitation
  • Hot start antibody for highly specific PCR amplification of genomic DNA
  • Can be used with whole blood or blood cards
  • Extract stable at 4 °C for at least 6 months
  • Compatible with any format (single tube, 96-well, etc.)
  • Simple, 3 step procedure with no special equipment required
  • REDExtract-N-Amp requires no loading buffers or tracking dyes required for gel analysis
  • PCR products are suitable for direct cloning and sequencing


Genomic DNA is extracted from 10 μl of whole blood by simply adding the Extraction Solution and incubating for 5 minutes at room temperature. The Neutralization Solution is added to the extract to counteract inhibitory substances prior to PCR. A portion of the DNA extract is then added to the specially formulated PCR ReadyMix.

Extract-N-Amp is a versatile, combined DNA extraction and amplification kit intended to simplify the generation of PCR products from a range of sample types. This methodology can be used without modification to perform PCR on blood samples stored on FTA blood cards (Whatman) which removes the need for the laborious and costly washing procedures that the standard FTA protocol stipulates. This technique removes the variability between sample preparations and maximizes the number of PCR reactions that can be performed on individual FTA blood card samples.

Extract-N-Amp™ PCR kits are the world’s first integrated extraction and amplification process for rapid blood, tissue or plant assays.

The availability of simple methods for purification of DNA and RNA has greatly facilitated the analysis and characterization of the genome and gene expression. There is a demand to isolate DNA and RNA rapidly and conveniently from a variety of cellular sources, including cells and tissues from mammalian, plant and bacterial cultures.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
