Zymoprep-96 Yeast Plasmid Miniprep

Simple solution for yeast plasmid DNA isolation using Zymolyase


  • Simple: Quickly and easily rescue plasmid from yeast.
  • Efficient Isolation: Works well with low-copy and hard-to-isolate plasmids.
  • High-Quality: Isolated plasmid DNA is ideal for molecular biology techniques, such as PCR, transformation, hybridization, etc.


The Zymoprep-96 Yeast Plasmid Miniprep kit provides all the necessary reagents for high-throughput plasmid isolation from S. cerevisiae, C. albicans, S. pombe and any fungi whose cell walls are susceptible to yeast lytic enzyme lysis. The Zymoprep-96 is a simple and efficient yeast plasmid miniprep kit that is based on the classic E. coli alkaline lysis method with our Zymolyase added in the first solution. There is no need for glass beads or phenol. The Zymoprep-96 incorporates our Zymoprep II kit into a 96-well format resulting in a high-throughput method that recovers about 5 fold more plasmid DNA compared to Zymoprep I and eliminates the isopropanol precipitation step. Reliably recover plasmid DNA from yeast colonies, patches on plates, or as liquid cultures. The system is ideal for low-copy number and hard-to-isolate plasmids. Eluted plasmid DNA can be used directly for E. Coli transformation, PCR, and Southern blot analysis.
