In addition, if there is sufficient bacterial DNA present, it will appear as a dense blob near the bottom of the gel. Note that the DNA stains that are used to visualize the DNA in the gel only stain double-stranded DNA, which is what is obtained when DNA is extracted from the sample by organic extraction. Organic extractions are used for most samples, but a certain amount of sample loss occurs during an organic extraction. When the sample is small, a different protocol may be used, using a resin called ChelexTM.
