Monarch kits are an excellent choice for cleaning up and concentrating DNA after enzymatic reactions and from agarose gels. Highly-pure DNA is ready in minutes in volumes as low as 6 µl. Monarch kits are designed with sustainability in mind and buffers and columns are available separately for added convenience.

Reasons to choose Monarch Kits for DNA Cleanup

 


 

Unique Column Design

Not only are Monarch columns designed to use less plastic, but they are also optimized to eliminate buffer retention; Monarch columns are designed without a retaining ring, thus preventing salts from carrying over into your eluted samples. The tapered design of the column also enables low volume elution (≥ 6 µl).

Monarch columns are designed for performance
Monarch columns are designed for performance. Monarch columns are designed without a frit, which eliminates buffer retention and the risk of carryover contamination, providing fast, worry-free DNA purification.

Efficient DNA Purification from Gels and Enzymatic Reactions

Monarch kits enable efficient purification of highly-pure and highly concentrated DNA from enzymatic reactions and agarose gels. Purified DNA is ready for use in downstream manipulations such as ligations and restriction digests.

Together with our enhanced buffer system, Monarch columns deliver excellent performance. Select a thumbnail to view the data for each product.

Purify oligos and small DNA fragments

The Monarch PCR & DNA Cleanup Kit protocol can be modified to enable the purification of ssDNA, oligonucleotides, and other small DNA fragments. The Oligonucleotide Cleanup protocol efficiently removes unincorporated nucleotides, short oligos, dyes, enzymes, and salts from labeling and other enzymatic reactions. The modified protocol utilizes the same columns and bind/wash/elute workflow of the Monarch PCR & DNA Cleanup Kit with > 70% recovery and cleanup of oligonucleotides ≥ 15 bp (dsDNA) or ≥18 nt (ssDNA).

Recovery of ssDNA and dsDNA oligonucleotides (1 µg) using the Oligonucleotide Cleanup Protocol and the Monarch PCR & DNA Cleanup Kit.
Recovery
Synthesized ssDNA and dsDNA oligonucleotides (1 µg in 50 µl H2O) of varying lengths (6-20 nt) were purified using the Oligonucleotide Cleanup Protocol and the Monarch PCR & DNA Cleanup Kit (NEB #T1030) and were eluted in 50 µl water. The average percent recovery (n=3) of the oligonucleotides was calculated from the resulting A260 as measured using a Trinean DropSense™ 16. Use of the Oligonucleotide Cleanup Protocol and the Monarch PCR & DNA Cleanup Kit (NEB #T1030) results in the efficient removal of small oligonucleotides (6-12 nt) and > 70% recovery and cleanup of oligonucleotides ≥ 15 bp (dsDNA) or ≥ 18 nt (ssDNA).

 

 

I often purify small amounts of inserts for ligations, so I appreciate the ability to elute in small volumes. I also very much appreciate the reduction of paper and plastic waste.
