The D401 Zymo ZR-96 DNA Clean-up Kit is a PCR purification kit that provides for rapid, large-scale (96-well) purification and concentration of high-quality DNA from PCR samples, endonuclease digestions, or crude plasmid preparations. Simply add the specially formulated DNA Binding Buffer to your samples and transfer to the wells of the supplied Silicon-A Plate. There is no need for organic denaturants or chloroform. Instead, the product features Fast-Spin plate technology to yield high-quality, purified DNA in just minutes.

Q1: What is the lower limit and minimal amount of DNA that can be recovered?
Picogram levels of DNA can be recovered. The limitation is based on sensitivity of detection method.
Q2: How to process naked DNA stored in DNA/RNA Shield?
Add an equal volume of ethanol (95-100%) to the sample and mix well. The sample is ready-to-bind and does not require DNA Binding Buffer. Proceed to Step 2.
Q3: What to do if ethanol addition to the DNA Wash Buffer was omitted?
The DNA will be eluted off the column. Rebind samples using the appropriate amount of DNA Binding Buffer and wash the column with the properly prepared wash buffer.
Q4: What happens if more DNA was loaded on the columns than the stated maximum binding capacity?
Oversaturation of the column can result in total DNA loss due to clogging of silica matrix.
Q5: How many times can columns be reloaded?
We recommend no more than 5 times as binding efficiency might decrease.
Q6: What is the minimum input volume of DNA sample?
Working with volumes below 50 µl can result in decreased recovery. We recommend raising the starting volume to 100 µl with water to ensure optimal binding conditions.
