international online community for dna barcoding professionals
It's my first post on barcode of life.
I wanted to know the DNA compatible collection fluid for the thrips tabacci..
I am going to collect some samples from different locations of India.
I tried before in ethanol, water, Ethanol-acetic acid.
But i found something wrong during next procedures.
Please do reply.
there is no ideal collection fluid - every one has some drawbacks.
it would help to know more specifics on what you tried and what the results were.
types of ethanol, what the spectrophotometer measurements and gel images of the extracted DNA were, etc
water - NO
ethanol - yes, if both non-denatured and 95% or greater; but shipping problems potentially.
RNA later ,yes, in theory.
salt buffer - yes, recipe below
for all: helps to make sure you are preserving the right body parts, and in timely fashion.
