As Qiagen has pointed out they have only provided the composition of their
solutions with the plasmid prep kits- the Qiaex and Qiaquick kits are a
different story.  You could argue for days whether it is right or wrong for
Qiagen to patent some presumably "common" parts of their kit but that's the
way it stands.  If that displeases you then don't use the kit.
