June 26, 2024
Thermo Scientific KingFisher PlasmidPro prepares high purity plasmid DNA in approximately 75 minutes.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. introduced the Thermo Scientific KingFisher PlasmidPro Maxi Processor (PlasmidPro), a fully automated maxi-scale plasmid DNA (pDNA) purification system.

PlasmidPro provides complete automation across mini and maxi scale purification and delivers high-purity plasmid without manual column preparation and intervention. This is the latest addition to the Thermo Scientific KingFisher instrument portfolio which offers a wide range of plasmid DNA extraction products to help drive efficiency and consistency.

The PlasmidPro purification system requires no set-up, centrifugation or pipetting and completely automates the purification process from culture to plasmid. The product uses a self-contained cartridge pre-filled with all necessary reagents to perform the purification. Using 100-150 mL of fresh overnight culture, the system is capable of producing up to 1.5 mg DNA yield.
