    Which Sample Cleanup Product Is Right for You?


    Cleanup MethodDescription & ApplicationProduct
    Reagent-Based Sequencing Template CleanupScavenges all unincorporated BigDye® terminators. Stabilizes samples before analysis. Best for long and short fragment recovery.
    Gel Filtration Spin ColumnsRecovers DNA fragments larger than 16 base pairs. Removes > 98% of salts, NTP's and other unwanted low-molecular-weight impurities.
