I'm new to the forum, and hoped somebody could maybe lend me some advice
I am conducting a series of DNA transfer studies and need to extract from fingerprint powders, including metallic, aluminium etc. Problem is i don't have access to Chelex/centricon methods and i am trying to adopt a suitable protocol to extract a small amount of the powder via the spin columns?
Could anyone recommend a suitable process... i was considering lysis overnight, my concern is that the spin column might not remove all the powder, leading to inhibition of my PCR...
Thanks for your time
