SAN DIEGO, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Zymo Research Corp. will launch three new additions to its ZymoPURE™ line of plasmid prep products during the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting, Booth #129. Innovative ZymoPURE™ technology produces high yields of pure plasmid DNA that is extremely low in endotoxins. The kits are easy to use and provide rapid purification. The three new kits complement the existing ZymoPURE™ midi, maxi and gigaprep kits.
Zymo Research's ZymoPURE™ Plasmid Miniprep Kit yields up to 80 µg of ultra-pure and highly concentrated plasmid DNA. Eluted plasmid DNA is ready for use immediately thereby avoiding subsequent precipitation steps. Syringe filters are included for rapid lysate cleaning and the spin-column design allows the binding step to be performed using a vacuum or centrifuge. Researchers can request a sample kit via the company's website to try the product before they buy it.
Also on display at Booth #129 will be the ZymoPURE-EndoZero™ Kit. This kit uses a modified alkaline lysis method and a unique binding chemistry that yields highly concentrated plasmid DNA, up to 3 µg/µl. The kit includes EndoZero™ spin-columns that reduce endotoxin levels to an ultra-low level of 0.025 EU/µg of plasmid DNA, at a speed that is seven times faster than competing kits.
The third product to be launched is the ZymoPURE-Express™ Plasmid Midiprep Kit. The kit isolates high-quality endotoxin-free plasmid DNA directly from culture in only 15 minutes. By removing the pelleting and resuspension steps that are used in other kits, highly concentrated DNA (up to 1.5 µg/µl) can be eluted directly from the microcentrifuge column in a shorter amount of time.
