EXTRACTME PLASMID MIDI KIT, 10 preps supplied by BLIRT is intended for ultrapure, transfection-grade plasmid DNA isolation in medium scale. The process for plasmid DNA purification uses pre-packed anion-exchange resin columns which bind nucleic acids efficiently and selectively. The 1st isolation step involves the release of pDNA from bacterial cells by alkaline lysis. This is followed by the neutralization of lysate and separation of all cell residues along with proteins and genomic DNA by centrifugation. This alkaline lysis method and RNase treatment are used to obtain clear cell lysate with minimal genomic DNA/RNA contaminants. Lysate is applied to purification column membrane with the equilibrated resin and DNA is bound. The two-step washing stage adequately eliminates pollutants and enzyme inhibitors. The elution of purified DNA is done with the help of either a low ionic strength buffer (Elution Buffer) or water (pH 7.09.0). And it may be utilized directly in all downstream applications such as PCR, qPCR, Southern blotting, DNA sequencing, enzymatic restriction, ligation and so forth, or stored until ready to use.
