Application Note: Optimization of bacterial culture and plasmid purification with Eppendorf Conical Tubes 25 mL
28 January 2020

Plasmid purification from bacterial culture is a commonly performed protocol in molecular biology and life science laboratories. For medium preparations 15 mL conical tubes with screw caps are typically used which often pose handling drawbacks and don’t enable achieving optimal productivity of bacterial culture and maximal yields of  DNA. Eppendorf Conical Tubes 25 mL with snap cap address these disadvantages. In this application note,  Eppendorf shows that the bacterial culture productivity and DNA yields using 25 mL Tubes were much higher when  compared to standard 15 mL conical tubes and at the  same time improved handling and performance of the workflow.
