TOOLS Quick Plasmid Maxi Kit
The TOOLS Quick Plasmid Maxi kit is based on the alkaline lysis principle and utilizes the finalizer to prevent the loss of precious samples. It is recommended to use 100 mL of bacterial cells for high-copy vectors, yielding 800~1,000 μg of plasmid DNA. The entire process, from bacterial cells to obtaining pure plasmid DNA, takes less than 1 hour. Specifically, plasmid DNA adheres to the finalizer in the presence of a high salt concentration, while an endotoxin removal formulation is employed to effectively eliminate endotoxins and protein impurities. This product is suitable for a wide range of routine applications, including restriction enzyme digestion, sequencing, library screening, ligation, transformation, as well as in vitro translation and the transfection of robust cells.
