Grouped product items
Cat.# Product Name Price Qty
HPI-D96 HighPrep Insect DNA Kit (96 Preps)
HPI-D96x4 HighPrep Insect DNA Kit (384 Preps)

Genomic DNA isolation from insects for:

  • PCR, Real-time PCR
  • Cloning, genotyping
  • Sequencing
  • Insecticide resistance studies


  • Efficient isolation of PCR-quality DNA from insects, and arthropods
  • No organic solvents
  • Allows field epidemiologic research
  • Magnetic beads based chemistry adaptable to automation

The HighPrep™ Insect DNA Kit is a high quality paramagnetic bead-based genomic DNA extraction kit used to isolate gDNA from a variety of insect-derived materials (wings, legs, whole body), and from different insect species, such as mosquitoes, flies, ants, and others. The HighPrep™ Insect DNA Kit is based on a fast and simple procedure which can either be performed manually or automated - up to 96 samples of tissues including legs and wings, can be processed in less than an hour.

This is a short overview of the protocol, for all detailed protocols, please refer to PRODUCT DOCUMENTS
  1. Add sample to well of 1.2 mL deep-well plate. 
  2. Bring sample volume up to with PBS or with MB Elution Buffer.
  3. Add Pro K Solution
  4. Add MAS Buffer
  5. Add 100 % ethanol and 10 µL MAG-S1 particles
  6. Wash by adding 70% ethanol to the sample
  7. Elution done by using MB Elution Buffer
  8. Store DNA at -20°C.
