Certainly. We quit using the cesium chloride method late last year (it
would have been sooner if we had gotten our way but our PI tends to be
somewhat conservative about some things). Not to push a particular
company but Qiagen makes nice mini and maxi columns for very clean
nucleic acid purification. The DNA is clean enough for microinjection
into mouse embryos for creating transgenics...the prime test (and
concern) for our lab.
There are other such products from other companies as well.
