Buffer P2 is a lysis buffer solution produced by Qiagen. It contains sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) to puncture holes in cellular membranes. It is used in conjunction with other resuspension buffers and lysis buffers to release DNA from cells, often as part of the alkaline lysis method of purifying plasmid DNA from bacterial cell culture.
