HelixAmp™ Direct WGA Kit

● Simple and Fast
● Uniform amplification
● Whole genome amplification from tissues without DNA purification
● Multiple displacement amplification by Phi29 DNA polymerase


Description

HelixAmp™ Direct WGA Kit is a complete system for whole genome amplification from various tissues or samples directly without DNA purification processes. Very little amount of samples, several miligram or microliter volume, are required for the direct WGA. About 10 μg DNA products could be obtained in a standard reaction. The enzyme mix and buffer system are designed to tolerate against most amplification inhibitors found in crude samples. Phi29 DNA polymerase, the major polymerization enzyme of this kit, isothermally amplifies the genomic DNAs included in the samples with multiple displacement mechanism. Phi29 DNA polymerase could produce DNA strand up to 70 kb long with high fidelity. All required components including enzymes, buffers, dNTPs, random primers, and sample pretreatment reagents are supplied in this kit. The amplified DNA products could be applied for successive PCR, genotyping, and library construction.


Quality control

Functional Assay
HelixAmp™ Direct WGA Kit was tested for the direct amplification from 1 μl of blood sample.


Evaluation of amplified DNA
- Agarose gel electrophoresis : The integrity of the amplified DNA is assessed by agarose gel electrophoresis.
- Quantification of amplified DNA : The DNA amplified with HelixAmp™ Direct WGA Kit are quantified using Quant-iT™ Assay Kit and Qubit fluorometer.


Application

◎ Genotype analysis
◎ PCR and real-time PCR
◎ Construction of genomic library
