Empirical Bioscience EB Pure PCR Purification Kit

Empirical Bioscience has launched the EB Pure PCR Purification Kit to streamline DNA purification and recover high-quality DNA in 10 minutes. The kit uses silica-based technology, binding DNA in high-salt and eluting it in a low-salt buffer without requiring organic extractions or additional precipitation steps. The kit includes binding buffer, activation buffer, elution buffer, washing buffer, spin columns, and collection tubes. In addition, the firm said it provides maximum recovery of DNA bands from 100bp to 10kb that are free of oligonucleotides, nucleotides, and polymerase, with yields exceeding 80 percent from DNA amounts of up to 20 µg.
