Message to anyone from Promega

A rep from Qiagen told me that Promega had to change their resin as they
were infringing someone elses patent.
To use the Wizard prepped DNA for sequencing, you need to wash twice with
the wash buffer THEN ethanol precipitate and wash with 70% and dry. 

I have switched the Pharmacia flexiprep kit to make miniprep DNA for
sequencing. It takes a bit longer, BUT IT WORKS!!! and costs less per
prep.

Promega have already lost my business. Shame, 'cos the Magic Minipreps
were great!
