Abstract

Although commercial kits are available for automated DNA extraction, ‘artisanal’ protocols are not. In this study, we present a silica-based method that is sensitive, inexpensive and compliant with automation. The effectiveness of this protocol has now been tested on more than 5000 animal specimens with highly positive results.
