It is very easy to use even for the less trained people and the results are very good.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cloning

"The use of this kit definitely simplified the cloning protocol in our lab, allowing the preparation of the plasmid vector in three-steps. Skipping the electophoresis on agarose gel lets us save time and to achieve a vector concentration that is far higher than that obtained with the purification from the gel band."

Rating: 5.0

"We use this to purify PCR products when not run on a gel. This is a great product and easy to use. Small volume elution (6 ul) is the best aspect of this product because you can concentrate DNA in dilute samples."

"This kit, like most Zymo Research kits, is very straightforward and easy to use. The protocol takes about a few minutes to go through depending on how many samples you have.

Gets the DNA totally CLEAN!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Library preparation

"This product works extremely well for purifying and concentrating DNA for Illumina libraries. My NanoDrop readings showed heavy protein contamination after CTAB DNA extraction from plant tissue and this kit cleared it right up in less than half an hour. The new A260/A280 ratio was exactly 1.8 after using the kit. I have not tried it for large fragment DNA, though. I would definitely recommend this kit if you have some contamination in samples for PCR or short read library prep."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Purifying DNA during bacterial cloning steps

"For a very long time, I was using QIAGEN, and to a lesser extend Invitrogen products for DNA purification. Recently, I switched over to Zymo Research DNA Clean & Concentrator - 5 kit. Not only did I find it cheaper, but also easier and less time consuming. It also gives very reliable & consistent results. The quality of the product is better than what I have been using until now. This product is also more suitable for my purpose in terms of how well I can adapt in terms of starting material and elution volume, as well as the relative ease and convenience when using the product.

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:PCR clean up

"Enzymatic clean-up is great if you have lots of samples, but when I only have a dozen or so, the "Clean & Concentrator" kit gets it done in around 15-20 minutes. Slightly more expensive than enzymatic clean up, but excellent value among the various column-based clean up kits on the market, and of at least comparable quality. The only things I would change: It needs much less of the binding buffer (1 bottle is more than enough) and needs a little more of the elution buffer (10-20% more would be really useful)."

Excellent clean-up system. I love it!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Concentration of nucleic acids, clean-up of PCR fragments for T7-Assay

"This product is easy to use, straight-forward and requires only a minimum amount of time. It always works - which is not true for many other clean-up systems! Elution in quite small volumes is really cool."

Good clean DNA for downstream uses but some loss of sample.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:DNA cleanup

"The kit was easy to use and produced good clean DNA samples that we could use for NGS sequencing. There is considerable loss of sample so the kit requires a decent starting concentration of DNA but we were able to clean-up samples that we could not clean with more traditional methods (phenol extraction/ethanol precipitation)."

Say goodbye to your contaminated DNA.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Purification of DNA from contaminant

"I used this product to clean DNA extracted from FFPE tissue and highly contaminated with phenol according to the spectrophotometer profile (ultra low 260/230 ratio, and 260/280 close to 1). The kit allowed to removal of all the contaminant, getting perfect 260/230 and 260/280 without major loss of template according to quantification via Qubit. The protocol is easy, as usual with products from Zymo, and the different parts of the kit can be bought separately. The elution can be restricted to a very low volume, allowing concentration of the template. The only negative aspect, is the necessity to use an elution buffer with pH>7 such as tris which my NGS facility does not accept."

All post extraction steps in one product.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cleaning metagenomic DNA.

"All the Zymo products I've used, including the DNA Clean & Concentrator™-5, are phenomenal. I work with very dirty samples - marine microbialites - contaminated with salts, extra polymeric substances, sediments, proteins, and, after collection, the preservative RNAlater. Zymo DNA and RNA Clean and Concentrator is the only product like it that has successfully cleaned my samples of all the contaminants remaining after extraction, including the phenol that carries over from the extraction itself. Additionally, my samples are very low in nucleic acid yield, so the added benefit of having one product to clean and concentrate means that I lose less material in downstream steps. I can even do a DNase treatment in the RNA C&C-5 kit. I'm very happy with Zymo's products."

Great value, works just as well or better than similar more expensive kits.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Preparing PCR products for sequencing

"I've been working in laboratories for many years and have had the chance to use many different PCR cleanup kits. I was able to get a free sample of the Zymo DNA clean & concentrate kits to prepare my PCR products for sanger sequencing. They worked great, and were much less expensive to use than my previous kit. The DNA clean & concentrate kits are very easy to use. One added feature that I really appreciated is that you can buy all of the kit components separate so if you have extra buffers you can just order more columns to stretch your dollar even more. I highly recommend this product."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:PCR and digest cleanup

"These clean and concentrate cartridges do just that. They take and DNA prep, remove everything else and put it out in a few micro liters. They are well priced, easy to use, and the quick protocol is just the same with every sample. We keep them stocked in the lab to grab anytime there a a prep to be cleaned, enzyme removed, buffer changed, or just reduced in volume."
