Acid precipitation solution

Acid precipitation solutions can be used to precipitate nucleic acids. To make an acid precipitation solution, prepare a solution using the following reagents

  • 1 M HCl
  • 0.1 M sodium pyrophosphate

Nucleic acids can also be precipitated with a 10% (w/v) solution of trichloroacetic acid (TCA), but this recipe is cheaper, easier to prepare, and just as effective.
