1 FTA Bacterial DNA Whatman Raccolta, trasferimento, stoccaggio e purificazione di DNA batterico La tecnologia FTA della Whatman offre un valido e semplice metodo per la preparazione di campioni per analisi genetiche da batteri. Occorre semplicemente applicare campioni di colture o campioni clinici sulla matrice FTA il DNA viene catturato e stabilizzato all istante, consentendone lo stoccaggio a temperatura ambiente, da analizzare al momento più opportuno. Gli agenti patogeni vengono inattivati all istante. Trasporto sicuro e purificazione in 30 minuti rendono la tecnologia FTA un indispensabile strumento di ricerca. Caratteristiche Principali Indicato per un ampia varietà di batteri Il DNA genomico pronto per la PCR può essere isolato rapidamente da una varietà di batteri gram-negativi e grampositivi, batteri spore-formanti e acido-resistenti senza alcun o minimo pretrattamento. Raccolta semplice Depositare colture o campioni clinici direttamente sulla matrice FTA (FTA Card Indicatrice). Perfetto per il vostro metodo FTA funziona, qualsiasi il metodo scelto per l identificazione di batteri: campioni da colture pure di batteri o campioni clinici. Temperatura ambiente Gli acidi nucleici vengono automaticamente stabilizzati senza la necessità di refrigerazione. Applicazioni Applicazioni diagnostiche Analisi biologiche Analisi di alimenti Analisi ambientali Rapida purificazione Il DNA viene purificato sulla FTA Card in tre semplici steps, in un singolo tubo, a temperatura ambiente. Il DNA rimane immobilizzato sulla matrice ed è subito pronto per la PCR. Se è necessario avere DNA in soluzione si può usare Whatman GenSpin. Manipolazione e trasferimento sicuri FTA inattiva gli agenti patogeni potenzialmente nocivi. Automatizzazione L utilizzo di sistemi automatici accelera le fasi di preparazione di diversi dischi prelevati contemporaneamente, ottimizza le risorse disponibili e standardizza la purificazione di DNA. I dischi prelevati dalla FTA Card possono essere sottoposti alle fasi di lavaggio e preparazione per la PCR su una diversi tipi di strumenti presenti in commercio (liquid handling robot). Monitoraggio acqua/aria Identificazioni molecolari Applicazioni di ricerca Tre semplici passaggi operativi per ottenere un DNA puro Dispensare il campione Purificare Prelevare un piccolo disco (punch) dal Campione

2 PROTOCOLLO APPLICATIVO DEL FTA BACTERICAL DNA Dispensare il campione Dispensare il campione sulla FTA Card. Lasciarlo asciugare completamente. Se si utilizza una Card Indicatrice, l area coperta dal campione cambierà colore da rosa a bianco indicando la posizione del campione stesso. Prelevare un piccolo disco Prelevare (mediante perforazione) un piccolo disco dal campione depositato sulla FTA Card. Purificazione con Reagente di Purificazione FTA (Purification Reagent FTA) Mettere il disco di campione in un tubo per PCR ed effettuare tre lavaggi con il Reagente di Purificazione FTA.

5 FTA A Highly Flexible Technology used Widely in a Range of Industries FTA technology has been embraced by a wide range of industries across the globe. Pharmaceutical companies use FTA to collect and archive human DNA samples for clinical drug trials. Law enforcement agencies use FTA to collect and archive DNA samples from convicted offenders. Nature conservationists use FTA to collect bird DNA from jet engines to determine the flight patterns of specific species. Scientists hunting for new plant species use FTA in the field to collect and safely transport samples. Governmental agencies use FTA to sample food products while farmers use FTA to track diseases within multiple herd generations. While the range of applications is large, they all share a common element: simplicity. Whatman FTA helps scientists speed their research and achieve their goals. Use with virtually any cell type The following is a partial list of the cell types that can be applied to FTA Cards: Blood Cultured cells Buccal cells Plant tissue Bacteria Plasmids Micro-organisms Solid tissue Viral particles M13 plaques FTA Cards are available in either white or pink (Indicating) formats. White FTA Cards are recommended for blood samples, plant tissues and other easily identified samples. Indicating FTA Cards are pink and turn white upon sample addition. Indicating FTA Cards are recommended for buccal cells, cultured cells and other clear samples. Store nucleic acids at room temperature for years Genomic DNA stored on FTA Cards at room temperature for more than 14 years has been successfully amplified by PCR. No other product can make that claim. FTA Cards offer a compact room temperature storage system that reduces the need for precious freezer space, improves sample accessibility and reduces storage costs. Captured nucleic acid is ready for downstream applications in less than 30 minutes Captured nucleic acid is ready for purification when you are. Just take a sample disk from the FTA Card, wash with FTA Purification Reagent and rinse with TE -1 buffer. The washed disk is ready to use in applications such as PCR, RFLP analysis and RT-PCR. FTA DNA PURIFICATION PROTOCOL Sample Application Apply specimen and allow to dry completely. Disk Removal Punch a disk out of the sample area on the FTA Card. FTA Purification Reagent Washes Place the disk in a PCR tube and wash three times with FTA Purification Reagent. Discard used reagent after each wash. TE -1 Rinses Wash twice with TE -1 buffer (10 mm Tris, 0.1 mm EDTA, ph 8.0) and discard used buffer after each wash. Drying Step Dry disk in PCR tube. Direct to PCR Add PCR master mix directly to the disk and amplify.

7 FTA Mouse Tail DNA Whatman Raccolta, trasferimento, stoccaggio e purificazione del DNA da code di topo FTA della Whatman offre un valido e semplice metodo per la preparazione di campioni per analisi di DNA da code di topo. Occorre, infatti, semplicemente applicare un campione di sangue o di tessuto dalla coda del topo alla matrice FTA. Il DNA viene catturato e stabilizzato all istante, consentendone lo stoccaggio per un periodo indefinito a temperatura ambiente, da analizzare in qualsiasi momento. Trasporto sicuro e purificazione in 30 minuti rendono la tecnologia FTA un indispensabile strumento di ricerca. Caratteristiche Principali Metodo rapido e versatile di raccolta I campioni sono depositati direttamente sulla matrice FTA. Il DNA è purificato sulla FTA Card in tre steps semplici, in un singolo tubo, a temperatura ambiente. Non sono necessarie sostanze chimiche tossiche. Il DNA rimane fissato sulla matrice, pronto per la PCR. Adatto a qualsiasi metodo Le FTA Cards si adattano alle diverse tipologie di campione : preparazione di campioni di sangue o di campioni di tessuto di coda di topo previo pretrattamento mediante digestione enzimatica. E sufficiente applicare direttamente i campioni sulla matrice FTA e non è necessaria alcuna ulteriore purificazione né con sostanze tossiche (metodi quali fenolo/cloroformio) né con altri metodi che possono richiedere lunghe incubazioni. Stoccaggio a temperatura ambiente e trasferimento sicuri Gli acidi nucleici vengono automaticamente stabilizzati senza la necessità di congelarli. FTA inattiva gli agenti patogeni potenzialmente nocivi rendendo i campioni sicuri per la loro manipolazione in laboratorio. Inviare i campioni a colleghi o al laboratorio centrale è veramente facile con FTA Cards. Occorre solo inviarli per posta! Automatizzabile L utilizzo di sistemi automatici accelera le fasi di preparazione di diversi dischi prelevati contemporaneamente, ottimizza le risorse disponibili e standardizza la purificazione di DNA.

A segment of the DNA is amplified by PCR then 2 oligonucleotides are hybridized to the PCR product. The 2 oligos are then ligated with a ligase enzyme.
