My experience with Wizards ranges from fair to poor with a high degree of
variability. This is confirmed by the ABI tech rep. Side-by-side, Magics
were good (350-400 readable), Wizards poor (0-200 readable), and
Qiawell/Qiaprep mini's excellent (550+ readable) for sequencing the same
pBBR327-based plasmid from bugs (TG-1) grown up and aliquoted. (Done in
triplicate). The Qiagen kits are nice if you can afford them, which I can't
at any scale. The alkaline lysis/PEG pptn prep in the ABI manual is
reported to give very good sequence, next time I'll include it in my
comparison.
