Part of the ZymoPURE Plasmid Kits collection, the ZymoPURE II Plasmid Midiprep kit provides the fastest and simplest method available to efficiently isolate up to 1.2 mg of transfection grade plasmid DNA from E. coli. Utilizing a modified alkaline lysis in conjunction with a patented binding system, the ZymoPURE II Midiprep kit can process up to 50 ml of culture in less than 18 minutes. This remarkable kit results in significantly more plasmid DNA while providing drastically reduced processing times. The plasmid DNA is rapidly bound onto a column with either a vacuum or a centrifuge instead of a slow gravity flow column. Additionally, there is no alcohol precipitation step required and the elution is performed using a microcentrifuge. The recovered plasmid DNA is highly concentrated (up to 6 µg/µl), endotoxin-free and transfection-ready. As an added convenience, the ZymoPURE II Plasmid Midiprep kit contains colored buffers that permit error-free visualization and identification of complete bacterial cell lysis and neutralization.
