From E. coli with Vacuum Technology (Millipore)

Plasmid purification is an important step in many molecular biology applications such as cloning. HAMILTON has developed a method for fully automated plasmid purification with maximum reliability, yield and throughput with the MILLIPORE Montage Plasmid Miniprep96 Kit on the MICROLAB STAR. The kit includes all the reagents and disposable materials needed to purify Plasmid DNA out of bacteria culture in 96-well format. After lysis of the bacterial cultures, only three short filtration steps are required to prepare 96 clean DNA samples from each plate. The plasmid purification of 96 samples is completed in less than one hour. Purified samples are suitable for the most sensitive downstream applications including cloning, DNA sequencing and transformation. These and other applications like DNA digestion or PCR set up can be automated on the same platform.

The MICROLAB STAR pipetting workstation allows both the usage of steel needles and disposable tips within the same run, which helps to reduce the running cost per isolation
