New England Biolabs (NEB) has released its Monarch Nucleic Acid Purification Kits.

Column configuration is designed to eliminate buffer retention and carryover contamination.

The firm said this allows for elution in smaller volumes, which facilitates direct use in downstream applications.

John DeMartino, associate director of business development at NEB, said nucleic acid purification techniques are notorious for producing large amounts of plastic waste.

“Our kits use up to 44% less plastic and are packaged using responsibly-sourced, recyclable materials, which can help pave the way to a greener laboratory."

Monarch kits are available for gel extraction, plasmid mini-prep and reaction clean-up. Buffers and columns can be purchased separately. 

"Inefficient column design that retains buffer can introduce unwanted carryover contamination, such as salts, into your purified sample. This can significantly limit the efficiency of many downstream applications, such as ligation and restriction digestion​," said Danielle Freedman, associate product marketing manager at NEB.

New England Biolabs has a global network of exclusive distributors, agents and seven subsidiaries in Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore and the UK.
