Introduction
Tumor diagnoses, DNA fingerprinting, and other genetic analysis often require DNA obtained in a non-invasive manner. For example, peripheral blood may be used as a source from solid tumors, but not for haematological malignancies. We first reported the isolation and pulsed-field electrophoresis of genomic DNA obtained from a single hair root.1 Additional details are presented below.


Sample Preparation
One percent low melt agarose (SeaPlaque, FMC) was prepared in 1x PBS, 1 mM EDTA and added to a rectangular mold while molten. A single human hair was positioned in the middle of the block. After solidification, the block was placed in a NDS lysis solution consisting of 10 mM Tris, 0.5 mM EDTA, 1% sarcosyl, pH 9.5, 1 mg/ml Proteinase K, and 25 mM dithiothreitol. Blocks were incubated 24 hours at 50 C, with a fresh change of lysis buffer after 24 hours. Blocks were rinsed three times in NDS and stored at 4 C until required.

Enzyme digests were performed according to manufacturers directions. Prior to digestions, excess agarose was trimmed to within 2 mm of the hair.


Electrophoresis and Detection
The samples were resolved using the CHEF-DR II pulsed-field electrophoresis system. The gel was 1.0% agarose (SeaPlaque) in 0.5x TBE buffer chilled at 14 C. Electrophoresis was conducted at 200 volts for 24 hours with a 50-90 second switch time ramp.

Gels were first stained with ethidium bromide (Figure 1A
