Probably you should try to increase the resuspension volume and
also check for its pH (its usually better if the pH is towards
neutral or inbetween 7-8, try it out with 1x TE).
Usually increasing the resuspension volume decreases the ppt salt
conc and also decreases the protein conc (which usually ppt with
DNA). Later on you can conc the DNA back with Sod.Acetate and
Hope this helps and Good year for you!
