The FAST Avian Extraction Kit provides a procedure for DNA extraction from feathers for gender identification of monomorphic birds.
FAST Avian Extraction Kit
Lysis occurs by incubation at 56°C and vortex mixing in the Proteinase K, Dithiothreitol and Lysis Buffer specifically formulated to remove contaminants that could be found in bird feather samples. The presence of a resin which acts via ion exchange limits destruction of the DNA by inactivating nucleases and chelating heavy metals that may damage DNA. The DNA extract is suitable for PCR detection using the FAST Avian Sexing PCR Kit (MBK0102, Diatheva).
