DNA & RNA Purification

Plasmid Purification


We provide kits for the isolation of high quality plasmid and Bacterial Artificial Chromosome (BAC) DNA. Suitable for work with large and small scale plasmid, endotoxin-free plasmid, and BAC DNA. The technology uses advanced silica bind and elute with vacuum or spin format. Used for transfections sequencing, restriction digestions, cloning, and gene therapy.

GenElute™ Five-minute Plasmid Miniprep Kit

"I never used a faster plasmid purification kit before. The Sigma GenElute™ HP Plasmid Purification Kits are really time-saving and easy to handle."
Andreas Knoedler
Oregon Health Sciences University


"I spend less time purifying DNA and I get higher yields with the Sigma GenElute™ HP Plasmid Purification Kits. The kits give me time back that I can spend on other experiments."
Rene Rijnbrand

"Purifying DNA is fairly routine in our labs, but nevertheless very important. Everything comes down to the DNA and we need high volumes and high quality necessary for mouse injections. Sigma’s GenElute™ HP Plasmid Purification Kit provides both in about an hour, saving us all valuable time."
Carol Williams
University of Texas
Southwestern Medical Center


"I get great sequencing reads with the DNA purified from Sigma’s GenElute™ Plasmid Purification Kits."
Michael Byrne
Partners Health Care
Massachusetts General Hospital


"I switched to Sigma’s GenElute™ HP Plasmid Purification Kit because I receive a higher purity and the protocol is very simple."
Tsui-Fen Chou
University of Minnesota


"I switched to Sigma’s GenElute™ HP Plasmid Purification Kits because the yield is much higher, the purity is better or equal to my previous method and, importantly, it takes me only a quarter of the time."
Waldemar Popik
Johns Hopkins University


"I am very glad I tried the Sigma GenElute™ Plasmid DNA Purification Kit. The preps are quick, easy and yield large amounts of high-quality DNA that can be used for all of my applications including transfections, sequencing and cloning."
