4C Forever

Analyze 5uL on 1% agarose gel.

NOTE: For PCR templates that carry the Ampicillin resistant gene, an enzymatic digestion of the template plasmid must be performed since the pDNR-Dual vector is also Ampr. This eliminates the possibility of the originating parent plasmid from being carried over. This DpnI enzymatic step is not necessary for PCR templates carrying antibiotic resistant genes other than Amp and can be skipped.

G50 PCR Products

1. Add 300uL dH2O to hydrate G50.

2. Let plate sit at room temp for 3 hours.

3. Place hydrated G50 plate on top of Nunc plate fitted with the blue adapter to collect water.

4. Spin 950xG for 5 minutes.

5. Discard water.

6. Add additional 150uL dH2O to G50

7. Spin 950xG for 5 minutes.

8. Discard water.

9. Place G50 plate on top of a PCR plate (E&K #489096). No adapter necessary.

10. Place assembly on PCR plate base.

11. Transfer all of the PCR products into the G50 columns, being careful to aspirate the sample into the center of each column.

12. Spin 950xG for 5 minutes to collect sample in the PCR plate.

13. Should recover ~15-20uL of sample.
