NucleoSpin Plasmid Transfection-grade
Endotoxins are copurified during plasmid preparations from E. coli lysates and interfere with eukaryotic cell viability, making endotoxin reduction an essential step prior to cell transfection. NucleoSpin Plasmid Transfection-grade incorporates an innovative technology to reduce endotoxins from bacterial lysates compared to standard plasmid miniprep kits. The NucleoSpin Plasmid Transfection-grade and NucleoSpin 96 Plasmid Transfection-grade kits are designed for rapid, manual or automated, small-scale purification of transfection-grade plasmid DNA from E. coli.
If your cells are especially sensitive to endotoxin, see also Nucleobond Xtra EF products for the lowest possible endotoxin levels in your plasmid preps.
