Bedford, MA -- Millipore Corporation announced the first products in its line of Montage Life Science Kits. Montage Genomics Kits, which provide all necessary reagents and disposable materials needed to clean up DNA preps, provide high quality DNA suitable for the most sensitive genetic research applications.

Using Millipore's size-exclusion membrane technology, the new kits -- for 96-well Plasmid Miniprep and PCR Cleanup -- use simple protocols that eliminate lengthy bind and elute methods and time-consuming centrifugation steps. Following a quick protocol, purified samples are collected from the top of the 96-well plate. This feature, plus the lack of centrifugation steps, enhances the kits' compatibility with a wide range of automated systems.

The Montage Plasmid Miniprep Kit offers an easy-to-follow and reproducible protocol that recovers 96 clean DNA samples in 50% less time than traditional methods. In one 25 minute protocol, the kit yields high quality DNA that can be used in applications including DNA sequencing and transformation.

The Montage PCR Cleanup Kit allows simple, quick cleanup of PCR products using 96-well MultiScreen plates that deliver high purity and high recovery. The PCR cleanup protocol requires no lengthy washing steps and no organic solvents.

Millipore's Montage Life Science Kits for Genomics expand on the company's participation in life science filtration to speed the delivery of high-purity DNA samples to the genomics research and drug discovery markets. Providing recovery and sample consistency from one kit to the next, Montage kits are also automation-friendly.
