It is faster than Qiagen kits and the results do not vary much.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Construction of plasmids to do transduction

"I work with plasmids and I am trying to modify the structure of my backbones in order to do transduction. The time I use doing Maxiprep has been reduced since I started using Zymo kits (before I used Qiagen). I consider both of them very good products but the difference is the time. I can obtain similar results in less time and the cost is lower. I am very happy for the change and I can encourage other people in my lab to try and see if it works well as it works for me. What I also find helpful is the color differentiation of this kit, it really helps when you have a lot of samples and sometimes it's hard to check and recheck at the same time you are doing the experiment."

  • Application Area:Plasmid isolation

"Fast and easy to use maxiprep kit. One should be aware not to overload the column with the bacteria lysis, because then the yield will go down. Purity is good and the new endotoxin removal step works well."

  • Application Area:Isolate DNA from large bacterial cultures

"This maxiprep kit is not only extremely easy to use (the reagents are color-coded so it's very hard to make a mistake) but it cuts down my maxiprep time from over two hours to about 20 minutes. The yield is better than other kits that take longer and are more cumbersome to use. This kit is also very reasonably priced, so there's no reason not to use Zymo's Maxiprep kits."

  • Application Area:Plasmid isolation and purification for cloning or transformation/transfection

"The kit is straightforward to use, the plasmid is excellent quality and you obtain very good yields. For some applications, a maxiprep is in place, instead of doing multiple mini-preps. Other column-based plasmid prep kits have lower yields and are more expensive."

Works great for high copy # E. Coli plasmids, low yields for other uses.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Bacterial DNA maxiprep (gram positive)

"I have used the Zymopure II miniprep and midiprep kits several times in my last appointment for high copy E. Coli plasmid preps, and they are fast, great, and easy to use. I really liked them, and having undergrads use them was simple - which is a great test of your protocol. In my current appointment, I have tried using this kit to isolate low copy # plasmids, with lower than expected yields. I also had lower yields attempting to isolate plasmids from gram positive bacteria. Would definitely recommend for routine use."

  • Application Area:Endotoxin free plasmid DNA for transfection of cell lines

"I have used many methods over the years to produce transfection quality plasmid DNA, using both lab made and kit based protocols. I can say, unequivocally, that the ZymoPURE II Plasmid Maxiprep Kit is the best kit I have ever used. The method is fast and produces the highest quality transfection grade DNA. The yield is also outstanding! This saves me time and money. I would not buy any other kit or use any other method to prepare plasmid DNA. Thanks Zymo!"

Lovely DNA prep kit!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:E. coli plasmid preps prior to sequencing

"Works great! We always resuspend cell pellets in TE buffer. We have also found that diluting the elution buffer still gives great DNA stability and elution, but also allows us to use more of the DNA sample for electroporation transformations. I wish the names of the wash buffers were more different. It can get confusing sometimes. The process is easy, fast, and reproducible!"

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Transfection

"This product was fantastic and worked as promised. I was having problems getting large enough quantities of DNA from my transformation, and this kit really made it easy to do. I would order this or any of the smaller prep kits anytime. The instructions are easy enough that I can have a brand new lab student perform a prep without even worrying about it!"

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Purification of plasmid DNA

"This has been a most time-saving product in the lab, especially when we recently took advantage of the free vacuum manifold when we purchased two kits. This was a great deal from Zymo and it's occasional deals like this that makes the customer return to Zymo Research. Zymo are excellent for providing free trial kits - these are fantastic as labs are often reluctant to switch suppliers in case things don't work as well as their current provider. In the case of the ZymoPure Maxiprep Kit, we loved the trial kit so much that we instantly changed to Zymo as our provider for Maxiprep Kit. The kit is generally more expensive than other suppliers, but the yield was so amazing that it would save money in the long-run (especially if you use a high amount of plasmid DNA for transfections, for example)."

  • Application Area:Transfection-grade plasmid DNA

"Quality DNA is critical for all applications involving DNA. When making virus, you certainly want to transfect with purified DNA. ZymoPure™ Plasmid Maxiprep Kit gave me what I needed and when I ran the DNA on a gel, I had nice, sharp single bands at their appropriate size. Best of all, it took less than 20 minutes!"

  • Application Area:Isolate µg quantities of plasmid that will be used for eukaryotic transformation

"I was quite pleased with this maxiprep kit. It really was easy to use and the convenience of the spin column eliminated a lot of time that is usually sunk into precipitating and washing DNA before hydrating it. The compatibility with a vacuum manifold also greatly increased the usability of this kit. I was pretty happy that the kit could be used in the absence of a manifold though since I don't always have one available. This kit was also relatively inexpensive and I got high clean yield which is important for transformation of my organism."

Colorful, fun and just as good as any other maxi prep kit. So use this one!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Large scale plasmid preparation

"So easy to use. All the solutions are colored and mix to make new colors along the process. It's fool proof! The instructions are so much easier to follow with the use of color! Anyway, apart from it looking beautiful it works really well! As good as any other kit I've used. It's a simple process biochemically so it should! The use of a syringe to extract the supernatant from the protein precipitate is a good idea and much faster and cleaner than centrifuging. Probably my favorite kit to use and making a maxi prep is no longer something I find boring :) "

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Purify DNA for transfections, recombinant protein production

"These kits reproducibly give high quality DNA in very high quantities. The kits are straightforward to use; instructions are clear- even new students can use them on the first try. Once in a while I will clog a column by getting some precipitate on it, then it runs so incredibly slow. Wish there was a way to fix my mistake once it happens! "

Review date: 12 Jul 2016 | ZymoPURE™ II Plasmid Maxiprep Kit

ZymoPURE Plasmid Isolation kits provide the fastest and simplest method available to efficiently isolate transfection quality plasmid DNA from E. coli. The ZymoPURE Plasmid Maxiprep kit features a spin column-based method for the purification of up to 1.2 mg of high-quality plasmid DNA in less than 18 minutes. The eluted plasmid DNA is ready for immediate use, avoiding the need for subsequent precipitation steps.

ZymoPURE technology uses a modified alkaline lysis method and features novel binding chemistry that yields highly concentrated plasmid DNA (up to 3 µg/µl) directly from a spin column. The wash regimen has been optimized to ensure the plasmid DNA is free of endotoxins, salt, protein, and RNA resulting in plasmid DNA suitable for sensitive applications including transfection, plasmid-mediated gene silencing, cloning, and sequencing.

As an added convenience, the ZymoPURE Plasmid Maxiprep contains colored buffers that permit error-free visualization and identification of complete bacterial cell lysis and neutralization. Syringe filters are included for rapid clearing of the lysate and the unique spin-column design allows the binding step to be performed using a vacuum or table top centrifuge.
