Today, there are faster and less hazardous methods available. Commonly used methods employ spin columns containing a silica matrix to which DNA can be selectively bound in the presence of chaotropic salts. Other reaction components, such as enzymes, nucleotides, detergents, and primers either do not bind well or are removed during the wash steps. Finally, the DNA is eluted from the columns under low-salt conditions and is ready for demanding downstream applications.
