DNA Gel Extraction

The Monarch DNA Gel Extraction Kit reliably purifies up to 5 µg of concentrated, high quality DNA from agarose gels. It utilizes a bind/wash/elute workflow with minimal incubation and spin times. Our unique column design eliminates buffer retention and carryover of contaminants, enabling elution in volumes as low as 6 µl and with fewer steps. Monarch Buffers have been optimized, and do not require pH monitoring. Unlike other kits, there is no need to add isopropanol to the melted agarose prior to loading on the column, saving a step. Eluted DNA is ready for use in restriction digestion, DNA sequencing, PCR, ligation, and other enzymatic manipulations.


Monarch DNA Gel Extraction Kits provide fast and reliable purification, reduced hands-on time and elution in low volumes

Our unique column design offers several improvements over other commercially available products, including the elimination of buffer retention and elution in as little as 6 µl
