Sample Preparation

Samples should be obtained with extreme caution to avoid contamination from other DNA sources. Pre- and post-PCR operations should be performed in separate rooms, and a laminar flow cabinet is used during extraction and purification steps. In each run, there is a negative control (water) used to detect contamination in the reagents.

The surfaces of the biopsy sites are cleaned and tissue samples are obtained from deep sites. After washing with sterile distilled water, tissues are cut into small pieces and then homogenized with phosphate-buffered saline (PBS)[5,6] or pulverized with a mill after lyoph-ilization in the liquid nitrogen.[1,6,8] The sample sizes were 1.6 g, 0.5-1 g, 5 mm3 size,[2,4,6] and 50 mg, 0.5 g, 1 g,[1,5,6] respectively.
