The Monarch PCR & DNA Cleanup Kit reliably purifies up to 5 µg of concentrated, high quality DNA from PCR and other enzymatic reactions. It utilizes a bind/wash/elute workflow with minimal incubation and spin times. The columns provided with each kit ensure zero buffer retention and no carryover of contaminants, enabling elution in volumes as low as 6 µl. Monarch Buffers have been optimized, and do not require pH monitoring. Eluted DNA is ready for use in restriction digests, DNA sequencing, PCR, ligation, and other enzymatic manipulations.
Monarch PCR & DNA Cleanup Kits provide fast and reliable purification, reduced hands-on time and elution in low volumes
