The MEGAquick-spin PCR and Agarose Gel DNA Extraction system is designed to extract and purify DNA fragments of 87 bp to 20 kb from normal or low-melt agarose gels in either Tris acetate (TAE) or Tris borate (TBE), or to purify PCR products directly from a PCR amplification. Up to 95% recovery is achieved depending upon the fragment size. PCR products are commonly purified to remove excess nucleotides and primers.
This spin column-based system, which can bind up to 40 ug of DNA, allows recovery of isolated DNA fragments or PCR products in as little as 20 minutes, depending on the number of samples processed and the protocol used. The purified DNA can be used for automated fluorescent DNA sequencing, cloning, restriction enzyme digestion or routinely performed DNA manipulation.
