Definitely worth the purchase, definitely produces competitive results.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Using bacteria to amplify DNA, extracting the DNA, and transfecting cells

"Using this kit was much faster and easier than kits I've used in the past from other suppliers. The results were also comparable, if not better than competitors. I'm glad to have found this kit and will be ordering more if the future for my lab."

Good results generally and easy to use.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Analyze the amount of PCR products

"Our lab has been using some of Zymo DNA prep products and maxi prep kit has been working well. The instruction is pretty easy to follow and the reagents are good. Sometimes, however, for some reason, the yield is lower than it’s supposed to be and it seems to be due to our low quality of DNA constructs or filters in the kit."

Super fast and consistently high DNA yields.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Produce DNA for transfecting mammalian cells

"I've used this kit dozens of times and almost always gotten high-quality yields (usually about 0.8 mg per 150 ml of saturated bacterial culture). The quality of the bacterial culture greatly affects the yield, but as long as it doesn't overgrow, you should be fine. Super easy to use with straightforward protocol and very fast with the vacuum manifold (highly recommend getting it) compared to the alternative centrifugation protocol."

Great kit for plasmid isolation and easy to use.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Isloation of plasmid DNA from E coli

"The plasmid isolation kit was very easy to use and the procedure was completed in under 2 hrs. The quality and purity was tested and found to be very high. We received consistent results with various reporter and expression plasmids and a high yield. The following applications including transfection of mammalian cells was also reproducible and very effective. The tech support from Zymo Research was also quite helpful and usually we received a quick response to our emails."

Good value for money and great yield and quality.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Plamid amplification for routine transfection

"I have used Zymo kits since my graduate studies, now in my third lab, I introduced this easy-to-use kit to my colleagues. Kits come with all the necessary components, adding ethanol to the wash buffer and storing appropriately are the only additional things I do. For me, getting a higher yield and quality are the most important things (while not spending more $), when choosing a kit. Zymo kits are yet to disappoint me. The sales team is responsive, addressed my issues (ordering related or help on getting a vacuum manifold) in a day or two. I would highly recommend their kits, I guess they supply free test kits for you to try!"

Results are reproducible and the kit is easy to use.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Prepping DNA for synthetic biology or eukaryotic transfections

"Results are reproducible and the kit is easy to use. DNA was high quality and had no ethanol contamination. A variety of downstream applications worked well after this kit such as Sanger sequencing, PCR, bacterial transformation, Gibson assembly, restriction enzyme digest, and mammalian cell transfection."

Way better than supplier Q.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Plasmid prep for transfection

"We had a project where we needed a myriad of plasmids. The lab had previously used a maxi prep kit from another company (starts with a Q, take a wild guess) but I suggested we try the one from Zymo. A head to head comparison (nano drop and gel) both confirmed we got more, higher quality plasmid from the Zymo kit (so much supercoiling!). The kit takes half the time of the Q kit with spinning, 1/3 of the time if you use the Zymo vacuum manifold (which we do). Plus the color changing aspect is very helpful and a nice break from the monotony of pipetting clear liquids. 5 stars!"

"Super fast kit, easy usage, excellent quality. In less then 15 min, the pure DNA is in your hand. If I increase the volume of the used bacteria solution a bit, I can get really concentrated plasmid at the end. Really good price, fast shipping. I truly love the Zymo products!"

"Extremely reproducible. The plasmid DNA quality as assessed by the 260/280 and 260/230 ratios is great and comparable or better than other kits that take much longer to process the sample. Customer service has been able to help us in the past if we found any defects in any part and promptly sent us replacements."

Fast and reproducible plasmid DNA purification.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Purifying plasmid DNA from bacterial cultures

"There are numerous good quality plasmid purification maxi prep kits on the market. As a large lab that processes numerous preps per week, reproducibility, cost, and assay time are important considerations. ZymoPure Maxiprep purification is significantly faster than other brands while maintaining reproducibility and quality. We have been very happy with this kit and recommend it for plasmid DNA purification applications."

  • Application Area:Isolate DNA plasmids large volume of bacteria

"I have always used gravity-flow columns because my yields have been higher and cleaner. However, this product achieves equal, if not better, yields as the gravity-flow kits and is done in 1/4 of the time! The protocol is straightforward and the color-coding makes it even easier to use and decreases the chance of grabbing the wrong buffer. This is the only kit I will use from now on for isolated DNA!"

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Using for CRISPR Cas projects

"I had good experience with Zymo Pure Plasmid II DNA Isolation kit. Endotoxin free ZymoPure maxi-prep is the best so far for plasmid preparation. I can't say that it will have zero endotoxin levels. However, the levels are very low which has significantly little interference with transfection procedures and I had issues with DNA quality yield as well."

Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Cloning for mutation analysis

"Coming from using the equivalent kit offered by supplier Q, this is a life-changer. We actually did a side-by-side from the same bacterial culture and Zymo blew away the Q kit both in yield and quality (assessed by nanodrop and a gel where there was SO MUCH supercoiled plasmid from Zymo). We use this in conjunction with the vacuum manifold and it has cut our plasmid isolation times in half. The plasmids are clean enough without the Endozero column, but the column is great if you need a good transfection into cells or if working with animals. Bonus: Fun colors when you lyse! Love, love, love this kit!"

Great kit.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Great kit to isolate high amounts of plasmid DNA from bacterial cultures

"I had good experience with Zymo Pure Plasmid II DNA Isolation kit. Endo toxin free ZymoPure maxi-prep is best so far for plasmid preparation. I can't say that it will have zero endotoxin levels. However, the levels are very low which has significantly little interference with transfection procedures. In my experimental studies, I tried and confirmed it. A comparatively inexpensive one is from Sigma (GenElute™ Endotoxin-free Plasmid Midiprep Kit). But it has limitations, the plasmid concentrations are far lower. Sometimes, a diluted plasmid (in water) may not allow efficient transfections. I haven't tested GeneJET Endo-Free Plasmid Maxiprep Kit from Thermo. I would really recommend the Zymo kit to all. Thank You!"

Amazing kit.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:DNA Plasmid yield for our CRISPR/Cas9 project

"I recently tried the Plasmid ll DNA maxi kit, the Zymo Research pure link with filter, and ZymoPure plasmid plus. I believe the Promega equivalent kit gives very good yield of DNA. Compared to the QIAGEN high-speed kit, I like both the ZympPure Maxi and mini/midi plasmid plus more. All three kits gave high yield. This Maxi Plasmid Pure II kit was a easiest kit, I would choose the ZymoPure Plasmid Maxi kit first. I would highly recommended to all for specially Plasmid DNA Isolation."

Circumvents isopropanol precipitation.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Plasmid purification

"We changed from QIAGEN to Zymo Research to do maxi preps because Zymo avoids the precipitation with isopropanol which is risky since sometimes pellets get loose. The colours of the buffers are nice indicators of mixture. In general we are quite happy with this kit and yields are higher than before."

Favorite plasmid prep kits.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Make plasmids for transfection of mammalian cells

"I love this Maxiprep kit because it is so much quicker and easier than other kits out there, without compromizing on DNA quantity and quality. Let's face it. No one likes preparing plasmids, but it is a part of getting results. This kit makes it so that less time is spent prepping DNA and more time spent on getting your experiments going!"

Bad yield. Wont be going back.
Rating: 2.3

  • Application Area:DNA purification

"We have used other Zymo products such as RNA purification kit which works fine. However, with ZymoPURE DNA purification kits including miniprep, midiprep and maxiprep kits, the experience has been horrible. In particular, DNA yield is consistently so low. We used a side by side comparison with other vendors and found that it was the kit, not bacteria, DNA and etc. We were hoping to use Zymo products for DNA purification due to the affordability but I'm sorry to say that we won't because of the poor yield."

Reliable high quality DNA for virtually all downstream applications.
Rating: 5.0

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."

Try it out and realize what you've been missing!
Rating: 5.0

  • 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."

Excellent yield for the price.
Rating: 4.7

  • 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."

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!"

"Quick, easy, reliable. Our lab loves how fast and easy it to make a maxiprep. We used to use Invitrogen's kit which took well over 3 hours to make one prep, which is annoying. The ZymoPURE II Plasmid Maxiprep Kit is so much easier to use, reliable, and gives us a great yield on our DNA product."

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: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."

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 :) "

"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! "

"As marketed, the prep was quick, easy, and yielded a large amount of clean DNA for use in downstream studies. For the time saved and ease of procedure, it is worth the money compared to other similar kits."

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.
