DNA Preparation Options for Gene Synthesis

When ordering your gene synthesis from Sigma-Aldrich, you can choose to receive more than the standard miniprep amount (2-5 µg). Check the chart below to see typical yields from each prep scale. Additionally, you can choose your preparation as endotoxin-free. For pricing and turn-around time information, see our Gene Synthesis Pricing Page.


Prep Scale Culture Volume Typical Yield*
Mini 4mL 2-5 µg
Midi 100 mL 100 µg
Maxi 250 mL 500 µg
Mega 500 mL 1.5-2.5 mg
Giga 2.5 L 7-10 mg

*Actual yield will vary with the nature of the plasmid, bacterial hosts, and other factors.
