Buccal Swab DNA Extraction

Ultra-fast DNA extraction from buccal swabs

The EchoLUTION Buccal Swab DNA Kit provides an ultra-fast method for DNA extraction from dry buccal swab samples. The protocol consists of a tailored lysis step within a few minutes, followed by a single-step purification. This kit delivers high-quality DNA suitable for PCR testing, genetic sequencing, and short tandem repeat (STR) analysis. Additionally, it can be used for genotyping and disease assessment for livestock, poultry, farm animals, and pets. 

Half the hands-on time 

Compared to conventional methods


Ultra-fast lysis

Tailored lysis within 2–5 minutes

High-quality DNA

Ready-to-use for downstream applications

Considerably faster compared to conventional methods

"Compared to our previously established silica method, the EchoLUTION Buccal Swab DNA Kit showed a significantly better DNA yield and improved performance in PCR genotyping. Additionally, we were very impressed with the speed and simplicity of the methodology. We will continue using the EchoLUTION Buccal Swab DNA Kit for our DNA extraction.”
