Novel Sample Preparation Tool Quickly and Efficiently Prepares Cell Lysates to Facilitate Genomic and Proteomic Research. .

The BioMasher™ Sample Preparation Device was developed by Nippi Inc. (Tokyo, Japan) to prepare  bovine brain cell lysates prior to testing for BSE (Bovine Spongiform Encephalitis).  We have found that the BioMasher is a versatile tool well suited for plant genomic and proteomic research.  Several plant species were evaluated by PCR using samples prepared with the BioMasher.  We compared direct PCR of cell lysates to DNA isolated using standard genomic DNA extraction methods.  In addition, we evaluated the BioMasher as an alternative to grinding plant samples in liquid nitrogen prior to genomic DNA extraction.
