Highly efficient DNA purification from agarose gels.


  • Quick recovery of ultra-pure DNA from agarose gels.
  • Column design permits DNA elution at high concentrations into minimal volumes.
  • Eluted DNA is well-suited for use in DNA ligation, sequencing, labeling, PCR, etc.


The Zymoclean Gel DNA Recovery Kit is a gel DNA extraction kit that provides rapid purification of high quality DNA from TAE/TBE-buffered agarose gels. This gel DNA extraction kit features Zymo-Spin technology to yield high-quality, purified DNA in just minutes. DNA purified using the Zymoclean Gel DNA Recovery kits is perfectly suited for use in DNA ligation reactions, sequencing, DNA labeling reactions, PCR, etc.

Technical Specifications

Applicable For Next Generation sequencing, ligation reactions, PCR, labeling, and restriction endonuclease digestions.
Elution Volume ≥ 6 µl of DNA Elution Buffer
Equipment Microcentrifuge
Purity A260/A280 >1.8, A260/A230>1.8
Sample Source DNA excised from TAE/TBE-buffered agarose gels.
Size Range 50 bp to 23 kb
Yield Typically, up to 5 µg total DNA per column can be eluted with ≥6 µl water. For DNA 50 bp to 10 kb the recovery is 70-90%. For DNA 11 kb to 23 kb the recovery is 50-70%

Product FAQ

Anaerobic bacterial strains from Antartica were sequenced for phylogenetic analysis and molecular studies revealed the possibility of a novel genus and species using 16S rRNA sequence and the recA gene. The Zymoclean Gel DNA Recovery Kit was used to gel purify recA PCR bands to ensure successful amplification.

The Zymoclean Gel DNA Recovery Kit was used to purify Cytochrome P450 (CYP) encoding PCR products and was followed by cloning in a yeast expression vector for CYP production. Researchers reported new CYPs involved in the synthesis of phytoalexins, antimicrobial toxins against plant pathogens.

The Zymoclean Gel DNA Recovery Kit was used to recover PCR products, which was then used in high-throughput sequencing to elucidate epigenetic variables and sequences to improve CRISPR-Cas9 genome targeting and editing. An in-vivo library-on-library approach was utilized for the simultaneous assessment of single guide RNA activity across 1,400 genes from various bacterial species.

“The best advantage about this kit is that it is really quick to make it, and the total DNA recuperated have a good quality and it have a good concentration to follow the experiments.”

- Ingrid M.

“The kit was very easy to follow and yielded good results. It was more affordable than the Qiagen Gel Extraction kits, but worked just as efficiently. Solid product“

- Thomas B (University of Tennessee, Knoxville)

“Protocols are very well written and Instructions easy to follow. Always had good results with your products.”

- Simin H. (University of California, Irvine)
