Journal Article
Shaw, K. J., Thain, L., Dyer, C., Docker, P. T., Greenman, J., Greenway, G. M., & Haswell, S. J. (2009). The use of carrier RNA to enhance DNA extraction from microfluidic-based silica monoliths. Analytica Chimica Acta, 652(1-2), (231-233). doi:10.1016/j.aca.2009.03.038. ISSN 0003-2670

DNA extraction was carried out on silica-based monoliths within a microfluidic device. Solid-phase DNA extraction methodology was applied in which the DNA binds to silica in the presence of a chaotropic salt, such as guanidine hydrochloride, and is e... Read More

Simple practical approach for sample loading prior to DNA extraction using a silica monolith in a microfluidic device (2009)
Journal Article
Shaw, K. J., Docker, P. T., Haswell, S. J., Joyce, D. A., Dyer, C. E., Greenman, J., & Greenway, G. M. (2009). Simple practical approach for sample loading prior to DNA extraction using a silica monolith in a microfluidic device. Lab on a chip, 9(23), 3430-3432. doi:10.1039/b913309g

A novel DNA loading methodology is presented for performing DNA extraction on a microfluidic system. DNA in a chaotropic salt solution was manually loaded onto a silica monolith orthogonal to the subsequent flow of wash and elution solutions. DNA was... Read More
