Dear netters,

Who can recommend me a reliable method for preparative scale 
purification of a large plasmid ? 

I am working with a 160 KB plasmid from a Gram + organism. 
We have tried a variety of methods with very disappointing results. 
All are labor intensive and give very poor yields 
(5 ug / lt culture approx.), or no plasmid at all.

Does anybody have tried something like large scale plasmid 
purification using pulsed field electrophoresis?

Thanks for your help.
