New England Biolabs Monarch Genomic DNA Purification Kit

New England Biolabs has launched the Monarch Genomic DNA Purification Kit for high-yield purification of high-molecular-weight DNA fragments (peak size greater than 50 kb), making it ideal for use upstream of long-read sequencing platforms. The inclusion of RNase A, optimized protocols, and buffer chemistry enable researchers to prevent RNA contamination (RNA levels are generally less than 1 percent) and address a wide variety of sample types without having to purchase any specialized kits, NEB said.
