Empirical Bioscience EB Pure Agarose Gel Extraction Kit

Empirical Bioscience has introduced the EB Pure Agarose Gel Extraction Kit, which is designed to isolate small DNA fragments (70 bp to 20 kb) from agarose gel in 15 minutes. The system specifically but reversibly binds DNA or RNA under optimized conditions, allowing proteins and other contaminants to be removed. Empirical claims the process will help guarantee consistent recovery rates in more than 85 percent of cases, while simultaneously removing primer-dimers, primers, nucleotides, proteins, salt, agarose, ethidium bromide, and other impurities. The extracted DNA can be used in most applications including ligations, PCR, sequencing, restriction digestion, or various labeling reactions, the firm said.
