Transfection efficiency versus plasmid purification method.|QIAGEN Plasmid Kit procedures.|
Different pRSVcat DNA preparations using the methods indicated were introduced into the indicated cell lines by liposome-mediated transfection, and the efficiencies determined by measuring CAT expression levels after 40 h. Each bar represents the mean of 4 independent transfections (2 transfections with each of 2 independent plasmid preparations). The highest transfection efficiency was achieved with QIAGEN Plasmid Kits.
|Neutralized bacterial lysates are cleared by centrifugation. The cleared lysate is then loaded onto the anion-exchange tip where plasmid DNA selectively binds under appropriate low-salt and pH conditions. RNA, proteins, metabolites, and other low-molecular-weight impurities are removed by a medium-salt wash, and ultrapure plasmid DNA is eluted in high-salt buffer. The DNA is concentrated and desalted by isopropanol precipitation and collected by centrifugation.

Performance
Classic QIAGEN Plasmid Maxi Kits use gravity-flow QIAGEN-tip 500 anion-exchange tips for efficient purification of plasmid DNA. Up to high-copy 500 µg plasmid DNA is purified from 100–500 ml culture. (Culture volumes depend on plasmid copy number, size of insert, host strain, and culture medium.) Plasmid DNA purified with QIAGEN Plasmid Kits is highly suitable for use in applications such as transfection (see figure "Transfection efficiency versus plasmid purification method"), cloning, and in vitro transcription.
Principle

The unique anion-exchange resin in QIAGEN-tips is developed exclusively for the purification of nucleic acids. Its exceptional separation properties result in DNA purity equivalent or superior to that obtained by two successive rounds of CsCl gradient centrifugation. Prepacked QIAGEN-tips operate by gravity flow and never run dry, minimizing the hands-on time required for plasmid preparation. The entire QIAGEN plasmid purification system avoids the use of toxic substances such as phenol, chloroform, ethidium bromide, and CsCl, minimizing hazard both to the user and the environment.

Procedure
With QIAGEN Plasmid Kits, bacterial lysates are cleared by centrifugation. The cleared lysate is then loaded onto the anion-exchange tip where plasmid DNA selectively binds under appropriate low-salt and pH conditions. RNA, proteins, metabolites, and other low-molecular-weight impurities are removed by a medium-salt wash, and pure plasmid DNA is eluted in high-salt buffer (see flowchart "QIAGEN Plasmid Kit procedures"). The DNA is concentrated and desalted by isopropanol precipitation and collected by centrifugation.
