Customer Testimonials

"The LiDirectTM Lightning Genotyping Kit that I sampled gave clear results and was much more efficient than the methods my lab had been using in the past. With the buffer that is included in the kit, there is no need to make an extraction buffer. Additionally, the quick extraction step (just 15 minutes) really cuts down on time and makes a huge difference. I am very satisfied with the product and plan on using this kit. Thank You!"

------ Icahn SMMS, Emmy Sakakibara, PHD

"I would like to update you on the LiDirectTM Lightning Genotyping Kit that I have been using for the past 6 month. We have definitely benefited from using this kit. The gel-electrophoresis-ready LiTaqTM Plus PCR Master Mix significantly cuts down the required hands-on time to genotype our animals. For a project that is heavily relied on multiple lines of transgenic animal, this has had a huge impact. Thank you for a wonderful product!"

------ NIH/NCI, Dr. James Wang, Research Fellow

"Using the LiDirectTM Lightning Genotyping Kit from your company, our lab members got pretty good results for positive control probes but not our mouse strains. The kit from your company is pretty good. We are optimizing the probe sequences and PCR conditions for genotyping now and at the meantime we are still using company service for genotyping. Once we are able to genotype our mouse strains in house, we will order LiTaqTM Plus PCR Master Mix from you."

------ Boston Children's Hospital, Dr. Ye Sun, Assistant Professor

Case Study

Taking advantage of our new proprietary formula, the LiDirectTM DNA extraction buffer enables fast DNA release from the toughest cells, and performs much better than traditional alkaline lysis protocols. Combined with our industry leading LiTaqTM Plus DNA polymerase, our LiDirectTM Lightning Genotyping Kit helps scientists to genotype all types of tissues and cells effortlessly.

Step 1: sample preparation
    • 1~2 mm piece of mouse tail
    • 5~10 mg of tissue

    • ~1×104 cells
Step 2: add 75 µl of LiDirectTM Extraction Buffer
    • Incubate at 98°C for 15 min
Step 3: add 125 µl of LiDirectTM Stop Solution
Step 4: set up 25 µl of LiTaqTM Plus PCR reaction mix
PCR cycling for amplification:

1. 95°C: 15 sec
2. 35 ×
    • Denaturation: 5 sec at 98°C
    • Annealing: 10 sec at 55°C
    • Extension: 30 sec/kb at 72°C
3. Final extension: 5 min at 72°C   

Comparison of genotyping PCR results with Taq polymerase from different vendors
Template is mouse genomic DNA extracted with the LiDirectTM DNA extraction buffer (M0014).
Lanes 1-3 are our Taq products: LiTaqTM Eco PCR Master Mix (M0034), LiTaqTM PCR Master Mix (M0024), LiTaqTM Plus PCR Master Mix (M0025).
Lanes 4-10 are competitor brands.

From these results, it can be concluded that our LiDirectTM DNA extraction buffer is compatible with most Taq polymerases on the market, but our LiTaqTM plus product line is more robust than most other products on market.
