Hi there;

I feel sympathy on your problem. Why? Cause I also had same problem as you.  I
solved that problem by developing my own kit by myself.  It is almost same idea
as Promege wiard miniprep but using Diatomaceous earth as binding resin. Of
course you can substitute diatomaceous earth with silica gel or pumce or glass
powder.  If you need the protocol, send me e-mail.
