The QIAprep Spin Miniprep Kit is designed for isolation of up to 20 μg high-purity plasmid or cosmid DNA for use in routine molecular biology applications, including fluorescent and radioactive sequencing and cloning. Even higher yields (up to 30 μg) can be achieved using the High-Yield Supplementary Protocol. The QIAprep Spin Miniprep Kit can be automated on the QIAcube Connect.
For optimal results it is recommended to use this product together with QIAvac 24 Plus.
QIAprep Spin Miniprep standard protocols can also be executed using the TRACKMAN Connected system, paired with PIPETMAN M Connected pipettes, both from Gilson. The TRACKMAN Connected system guides researchers through the QIAprep Spin Miniprep protocols while automatically adjusting the Bluetooth-enabled PIPETMAN M Connected pipette settings. Each step of the protocol execution is recorded to accelerate reporting by generating a comprehensive run report. Download more information.
In partnership with My Green Lab, we've also assessed the environmental impact of the QIAprep Spin Miniprep Kit (250). My Green Lab ACT (accountability, consistency, and transparency) environmental impact factor labels are designed to evaluate and score products on several sustainability criteria. These include:
- responsible chemical management
- sustainable content within products and packaging materials
- disposal of the packaging at the end of life
Products are scored from 1 to 10 except for energy and water consumption, which are scored as 1 point per kWh or gallon, respectively. A low score means a lower environmental impact.
You can view the ACT labels for the QIAprep Spin Miniprep Kit (250) in the Resources section below. For an eco-friendlier alternative to this kit, see our QIAwave Plasmid Miniprep Kit.
