Diagram of the nucleic acid extraction protocol from the skin punch biopsy using SpeedXtract. SpeedXtract is a reverse semi-purification method in which a nucleic acid is extracted by combining lysis buffer and heat. The magnetic beads capture cell membrane, protein and other inhibitors in the sample, while the nucleic acid is free in the supernatant
