Product Description

Isoamyl Alcohol

Application Notes

Isoamylalcohol is routinely used in molecular biology, especially in the purification of DNA. It is widely used in conjunction with phenol and chloroform (25:24:1 phenol : chloroform : isoamyl alcohol) for the removal of proteins from the nucleic acid solutions by extraction. Isoamyl alcohol is added to the phenol solution to help inhibit RNase activity and to help prevent the solubilization in the phenol phase of long RNA molecules with long poly(A) portions. It will also help in reducing the foaming during the extraction process.
