Reliable kit and we got great concentration of recovered DNA.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Recover DNA sample from agarose gel

"It is very easy to use and I like it because you only need a small amount of water to elute the DNA. So you can get higher concentration of recovered DNA. Product quality has been very reliable that we don’t have any issue with the solution or columns."

Efficient purification system, reliable and consistent.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Molecular biology and molecular engineering

"Overall, this is a reliable and efficient purification system from agarose gels. The small elution volume allows one to limit the material necessary for upstream processing. Yields high purity and reasonable quantity DNA that is usable for subsequent PCR, recombination cloning or traditional cloning. Highly recommend."

Clean DNA, maximum recovery, high concentration, cost-effective; essential product!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Clone plant genes

"The Zymoclean Gel DNA Recovery kit was perfect for our experimental workflow. We always got very clean DNA, with maximum yield from the gel. It was extremely useful to be able to adjust the final elution volume to obtain concentrated samples. Other than making sure to add ethanol to the wash reagent, there is little that could possibly go wrong. The protocol was simple, quick, and reduced user errors effectively. We will use this product again, and I highly suggest others use it for their applications!"

Purification of PCR and cut DNA plasmids for cloning. Low volume elution is great!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Purification of PCR and cut DNA plasmids for cloning.

"Purification of PCR and cut DNA plasmids for cloning. My favorite kit. Small volume elution of 6ul is great for low abundant PCR products and often avoids repeating the PCR to make more DNA. Very clean and great for cloning."

  • Application Area:Extracting backbone for future cloning

"In comparison with other products intended for the same use, the Zymo kit gave the best results, cleanest DNA and also highest yield. In addition to this, the supply of the sample kit was really helpful as it allowed me to compare products before purchasing the larger Zymo kit."

Fast, reliable and effective - high yield and purity of DNA.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:DNA purification (gel extraction)

"I first tried the Zymoclean kit from a free sample and was highly satisfied with the yield and purity of the extracted DNA, as well as the ease of use of the kit. In particular, I had found that competing products often had either low yields or impurities, or in some cases both, whereas the Zymoclean kit was fast, reliable and effective. It was not a difficult decision to place an order once the free sample had run out!"

Low cost, rapid kit for gel recovery of bands, I recommend it!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Recombinant virus production, molecular cloning

"The product is easy to use, and what I really found beneficial is that the results are always reproducible and clean, the amount of recovered DNA depends on the elution. I always cut the fragment under low UV lamp, as quick as possible, and I recommend to eluate the sample in 15 ul, therefore the eluated volume is around 12 ul. I suggest using warm water (37 C) or 0.1mM Tris/EDTA for the elution, not cold water. What is another positive characteristic of ZymoPure kits, is that the gel recovery and DNA clean up kit components are interchangeable. Time management is good, but the written time is not enough for me to complete many samples."

Economical, quick and easy to use kit.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Isolation and purification of PCR products before downstream applications

"This gel purification kit has only few steps and its easy to use even for someone without previous molecular biology experience. I have used this kit routinely to isolate both small PCR fragments as well as larger vector backbones. I always get good quality DNA and this has made my cloning so much more efficient. This kit is priced competitively and that makes it even more attractive. Please continue to make more such great products!"

Great results which make lab life easy and your research reliable.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze sequences looking for mutations in Human DNA

"I used the Zymo DNA recovery kit to extract and purify DNA sequences where I look for mutations causative of human diseases. Protocol is pretty easy to follow and is kind of short, not time consuming. Also, quality of sequences obtained from the extraction with the kit is reliable, reproducible and I get good quality sequence readings. From my experience, the product is good and the price is in accordance with the quality of the service. Besides that, support team and sales people are always able to help either by call, stop by the lab or even at vendor shows, trying to help and offering solutions."

The best DNA gel isolation kit so far.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Isolate DNA fragments from agarose gels

"Compared to kits from many other companies, you can elute your DNA in very small volumes (<10 ul), which is convenient if you want to use the whole amount for further processing like restiction/electrophoresis. The DNA solubilization/binding/elution procedure is fast, simple and straightforward."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:DNA isolation from gel

"I ordered the Zymoclean Gel DNA recovery kit because I want to purify large fragments (6, 10, 15 KB) from agarose gel. I was facing a lot of trouble isolating this using other kit so I wanted to give a try with Zymo kit. I went through the protocol and as per suggestion I did all the steps. I started with a total plasmid DNA (30ng) which I digested with a restriction enzyme and I recovered around 10 ng of the DNA fragment of interest which is atleast 3 times better than the other kits I was using for the same purpose earlier. Yeld is better and the purity is also good. The kit meet my expectations."

Great yield, easy to use. A total must-have for molecular cloning.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:PCR products extraction for molecular cloning

"One of the best kits for DNA gel purification. The quality/price ration is really good. This kit has a great advantage - you can elute your sample in small volume - 6ul. It's great for molecular cloning, when you need to purify PCR product. Final concentration is enough for ligation. Especially, in cases when PCR yield isn't good. Kit is easy to use, has a brief manual, which is a good point too."

Good results.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Purify DNA from agarose gel

"Very easy to use. DNA can be eluted in a very small volume and yield is good enough for downstream applications (cloning, sequencing)."

  • Application Area:Gel extraction of PCR product

"The Gel DNA kit is quick and efficient. However, I consistently have extremely low yields, as low as 1/3rd the quantity of product expected."

Works great
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:DNA Cloning

"Great purification with little loss. Elute volumes are low making it easy to have a high concentration of gel extracted DNA for further use in ligations or PCR."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Gel extraction and DNA purification

"Most of the gel purification kits are very similar. What sets this one apart is the ability to elute in volumes as small as 6ul, allowing you to concentrate your eluted DNA for downstream applications. "

Quick and easy DNA extraction.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Extracting DNA for cloning.

"High quality DNA recovered after gel extraction from 1-3% TAE gels. The quantity of elution buffer obtained after the final spin is less than put in marginally, but not detrimental to my experiments. (Just something to note really)! Kit is quick, simple and easy to use. "

  • Application Area:Purifying DNA bands for cloning from agarose gels.

"You get very high yields, the 260/280 peak in the NanoDrop looks amazing, and it gives a very good purified product that does not fail in subsequent reactions. Also it is extremely fast to use."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Plasmid construction

"The Zymoclean Gel DNA Recovery kit is excellent for the isolation of DNA fragments for plasmid construction. We use it routinely in the lab, and it consistently gives high recovery yields and excellent ligation results, plus we can adjust the elution volume over a wider range than most other kits. A clear cut two thumbs up!"
