Buy only what you need – Monarch buffers and columns available separately
It can be frustrating to have to purchase an entire new kit when a single component has run out
in your current kit. We’ve heard this complaint from our customers, and that’s why Monarch Kit
components – buffers and columns alike – are available for purchase separately.
Save money with no additional shipping and handling charges*
Monarch kits from NEB carry no additional shipping and handling fees. Our standard shipping
policy applies to these products. Additionally, in the US, any orders over $350 ship for free,
which means that the large Monarch DNA Gel Extraction Kit and large Monarch PCR & DNA
Cleanup Kit will almost always ship for free!
Further savings with no hazardous materials fees
Miniprep Kits commonly contain buffers which, when supplied in quantities over a certain
volume, require special shipping and handling by transportation agencies. This often results in
a "Hazardous Materials Fee" being passed on to the customer to cover the costs incurred by
the supplier, in addition to the regular shipping fees that a company charges. Often times these
fees can add up to be more than the actual cost of the kit! The Monarch Plasmid Miniprep Kit has
been purposefully configured to be exempt from expensive hazardous shipping requirements.
