We use a Qiagen PCR cleanup kit and then elute with water. It takes 5 min.
max. and very reliable. We've done over 500 of these and now we don't even
check on a gel after. We then dilute the eluent 1:10 and run a seq. rxn
with 10ul of that, 3 ul of Dye mix and 2ul of primer.
Over 5,000 reactions done this way in the last 2 years.
