Nucleic acid purification is an early step of many experimental protocols and workflows, preceding downstream applications such as PCR, qPCR, genotyping, sequencing, NGS, and cloning and expression. Purification kits commonly rely on silica-based columns and specialized lysis and extraction reagents to yield purified plasmid DNA, genomic DNA, or RNA from a variety of sample types. Such kits provide key benefits over “homebrew” or do-it-yourself laboratory methods, as they:

  • Eliminate the need for hazardous phenol-chloroform extraction
  • Reduce hazardous waste
  • Limit use of high-energy fume hoods
  • Provide consistent and reliable purification with minimal training

The GenElute™ line of nucleic acid purification kits provide tailored solutions for a variety of sample types and conditions. They present a cost-effective solution for laboratories at all scales, offering more preps at a better price than common competitors.

Our Purification Cross Reference document provides recommendations for customers looking to replace typical QIAGEN™ products.
