Plasmid maxiprep preparation is a basic technique performed in most molecular biology laboratories. Multi sample processing is often required to complete both plasmid isolation and subsequent downstream experimentation. Life Technologies Plasmid maxiprep kits offer a range options to eliminate the challenges raised by this level of workflow processing. They are designed to isolate plasmid DNA at the purity and scale you need and are available in a variety of configurations.
