I used the method from G.M.Sathe et al. described in NAR (19) 17:4775
(1991) for detecting insert sizes in my plasmids. But even with that
method I only found about 1/5 of all samples working. So I went back to
extract plasmids before PCR to have reliable results. I would be very
interestted too if someone else has a good protocol for it.
