I've used Wizard preps with no problems. The DNA has been used for
restriction digestion with various enzymes and also in automated fluorescent
sequencing. My only complaint is that the new resin seems to settle out
faster than the old resin, so that when pipetting resin into a series of
tubes, the last aliquot has less resin. I get around this by pipetting
fewer aliquots than I used to.
