There is a much easier method.
Cut the gel containing the DNA. Place a TE-saturated whatmann paper in a 1ml
syringe to block the opening.Rinse the gel piece in TE and place in the
syringe. Press with plunger firmly to squeeze the DNA out in a small amount
Read Biotechniques Vol 15 (6) 1993.
p.s. I haven't had any problems with glass milk and small DNA pieces.
