Yes, I use their GeneReleaser resin routinely for sample prep of
blood and bacteria for PCR. I find that it works great and a big
advantage is that you can do the DNA prep in the same tube as the
PCR (in the thermocycler or microwave). The only disadvantage for
me is that I have not been able to get it it to work with "Long" PCR - it
seems to completely wipe out enzyme activity.
Standard disclaimers apply, other than I am a satisfied customer.
