Monarch purification columns have been custom designed to deliver excellent performance by eliminating buffer retention and the risk of carryover contamination, as well as minimize their environmental impact. The tapered design enables elution in as low as 30 μl for the Miniprep Kit and 6 μl for the Gel Extraction and PCR & DNA Cleanup kits.

Monarch Columns use less plastic than conventional columns, reducing their environmental footprint without compromising performance. The columns fit snugly into the collection tubes to enable easy handling. The Monarch Miniprep Columns feature a convenient tab so that you can label your columns easily without removing them from your tube rack. Monarch columns are suitable for use with centrifugation and vacuum purification protocols.


Unique Monarch column design

    (Gel Extraction/PCR & DNA Cleanup Kits)

Many purification columns are built with a frit to hold the membrane in place. This frit can trap buffer during various steps in the protocol. Monarch Columns’ silica matrix is held in place without the use of a frit, thereby eliminating buffer retention and ensuring worry-free purification.
