Product description
2.1 The basic principle
The NucleoSpin® 96 PCR Clean-up kit allows direct clean-up of PCR reaction mixtures.
Within the procedure the addition of chaotropic salt (Buffer NT) allows a reversible
adsorption of the PCR products to the silica membrane of the NucleoSpin® 96 PCR
Clean-up Binding Plates. High purity of the PCR-products is achieved by complete
removal of primers, primer-dimers, salts, nucleotides, and proteins (e.g., polymerases,
BSA) in subsequent washing steps using Buffer NT3. Highly pure PCR products are
finally eluted with Elution Buffer NE (5 mM Tris/HCl, pH 8.5) or water (pH 8.5), and can
be used directly for further applications.
2.2 Kit specifications
•
NucleoSpin® 96 PCR Clean-up is designed for the fast 96-well purification
of PCR products in the microtiter plate format (e.g., desalination, removal of
enzymes, nucleotides and / or labeling reagents like biotin or radioactive ATP).
•
The kit is for use with the NucleoVac 96 vacuum manifold (see ordering
information) or similar suitable vacuum manifolds (see section 2.4).
•
If using less than 96 samples the rubber pad or Self-adhering PE Foil (see
ordering information) must be used in order to cover non used wells to maintain
sufficient vacuum.
•
The kit provides reagents and consumables for purification of up to 15 μg highly
pure PCR products.
•
Eluted PCR products are ready-to-use for several applications including
automated fluorescent sequencing, cloning, or microarray technology.
•
The NucleoSpin® 96 PCR Clean-up kit allows for the simultaneous processing
of up to 96 samples typically within 45 minutes.

2.5 Automated processing on robotic platforms
NucleoSpin® 96 PCR Clean-up can be used fully automated on many common laboratory workstations. For the availability of scripts and general considerations about
adapting NucleoSpin® 96 PCR Clean-up on a certain workstation, please contact MN.
Full processing under vacuum enables complete automation without the need for centrifugation steps, regarding drying of the binding membrane and elution step.
The risk of cross-contamination is reduced by optimized vacuum settings during the
elution step and by the improved shape of the outlets of the NucleoSpin® PCR Cleanup Binding Plate.
Drying of the NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding Plate under vacuum is sufficient
because the bottom of the plate is protected from residues of wash buffer during the
washing steps by the MN Wash Plate. As a result, we recommend trying to integrate the
MN Wash Plate into the automated procedure. The MN Frame (see ordering information)
can be used to position the disposable MN Wash Plate inside the vacuum chamber.
This also reduces the risk of cross-contamination, as common metal adaptors tend to
get contaminated by DNA. Thorough cleaning of the vacuum chamber is recommended
after each run to prevent DNA-containing aerosols from forming.
Visit MN online at www.mn-net.com or contact your local MACHEREY-NAGEL
distributor for technical support regarding hardware, software, setup instructions, and
selection of the protocol. Several application notes of the NucleoSpin® 96 PCR Cleanup kit (formerly known as NucleoSpin® 96 Extract II) on various liquid handling
instruments can also be found at www.mn-net.com at Bioanalysis / Literature.
2.6 Elution procedures
Elution of purified PCR products: The efficiency of the DNA elution depends on the
pH of the elution buffer. Elution is most effective at pH 8.0–8.5. When using nucleasefree water for elution, the pH value should be checked and, if necessary, adjusted to
8.0–8.5. Lower pH of the selected elution buffer may lead to lower recoveries. Yield
of larger DNA fragments (> 5–10 kbp) can be increased by using pre-warmed (70 °C)
elution buffer (also see Table below). An elution volume of 75–125 μL Buffer NE, as
well as a 3–5 min incubation at room temperature (18–25 °C) of the elution buffer on
the silica membrane are recommended.
See the following table for correlation between the dispensed elution buffer volume and
typical recoveries following the standard protocol.
The recommended dispense volume of elution buffer is 125 μL.

Detailed protocol
For processing of NucleoSpin® 96 PCR Clean-up under vacuum the NucleoVac 96
Vacuum Manifold is required.
Before starting the preparation:
•
1
Check if Buffer NT3 was prepared according to section 3.
Adjust the volume of reaction mixture
For PCR reaction volumes below 100 μL: Before starting the purification
procedure, add Tris buffer (10 mM, pH 7.0), nuclease-free water (pH 7.0–7.5),
or Elution Buffer NE to adjust the reaction mixture to a final volume of 100 μL.
Note: If less than 100 μL of PCR reaction mixture is used the volume of Binding
Buffer NT has to be adjusted. It is mandatory that the ratio of Buffer NT : PCR reaction
mixture is 2 : 1.
Prepare the NucleoVac 96 Vacuum Manifold
Insert spacers labeled ‘MTP/Multi-96 Plate’ notched side up into the grooves
located on the short sides of the manifold. Insert waste container into manifold
base. Place the MN Wash Plate on top of the spacers. Insert NucleoSpin® PCR
Clean-up Binding Plate into the manifold lid and place lid on the manifold base.
Close manifold base with the manifold lid. Close the vacuum manifold´s valve,
check and adjust the vacuum (-0.2 bar*).
2
Dispense binding buffer to the NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding Plate
(column wise processing is recommended)
Add 200 μL Buffer NT to each well of the NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding
Plate.
3
Transfer PCR samples to the NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding Plate and
mix
Mix by pipetting up and down 5 times.
Optional: Pre-mix PCR reaction and Buffer NT in a Square-well Block etc. (not
supplied).
4

Remove MN Wash Plate
After the final washing step, close the valve, release the vacuum, and remove the
NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding Plate. Remove manifold lid, MN Wash Plate,
and waste container from the vacuum manifold.
7
Dry NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding Plate
Remove any residual washing buffer from the NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up
Binding Plate. If necessary, tap the outlets of the NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up
Binding Plate onto a clean paper sheet (supplied with the MN Wash Plate) or soft
tissue until no drops come out. Insert the NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding
Plate into the lid and close the manifold. Apply vacuum of -0.3 to -0.4 bar* for at
least 10 min to dry the membrane completely. This step is necessary to eliminate
traces of ethanol.

NucleoSpin® 96 PCR Clean-up – elution of DNA using a centrifuge
5.2 NucleoSpin® 96 PCR Clean-up – elution of DNA using a
centrifuge
Eluting the purified DNA in a centrifuge may be necessary when higher concentrations
of the final DNA are required for downstream applications. Using a centrifuge allows
the dispensed volume to be reduced down to 50–75 μL, giving a DNA concentration of
about 70–200 ng/μL (depending on elution buffer volume and fragment length).
Required hardware:
•
•
•
For centrifugation, a microtiterplate centrifuge that can accommodate the
NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding Plate stacked on a rack of Tube Strips
is required. It is also necessary that the centrifuge reached accelerations of
5,600–6,000 x g (bucket height: 85 mm).
For centrifugation, a microtiterplate centrifuge is required which is able to
accommodate the NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding Plate stacked on Rack
of Tube Strips and reaches accelerations of 5,600–6,000 x g (bucket height:
85 mm).
Suitable elution tubes: Rack of Tube Strips has to be ordered separately (see
ordering information).
1
Stop the method after the final washing step with Buffer NT3. Remove the
NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding Plate from the manifold´s top and tap on a
sheet of filter paper to remove residual wash buffer from the outlets.
2
Place the NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding Plate on top of a MN Squarewell Block (not supplied with the kit, see ordering information) and centrifuge for
10 min at maximum speed (> 4,000 x g, optimal 5,800 x g).
Note: Do not use a microtiter plate as a support for the NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up
Binding Plate. Microtiter plates may crack under centrifugation at > 1,500 x g.
3
Place the NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding Plate on top of a Rack of Tube
Strips (not supplied with the kit, see ordering information). Dispense Elution
Buffer NE (50–150 μL) directly onto the silica membrane and incubate for 1–3
min at room temperature.
4
Centrifuge for 2 min at maximum speed (> 4,000 x g, optimal 5,800 x g) to
collect the DNA.
Remove the Rack of Tube Strips containing eluted DNA and close them with Cap
Strips for further storage.

6.1 Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible cause and suggestions
No ethanol added to Buffer NT3 Concentrate, ethanol evaporated
•
Poor DNA yield
Add indicated volume of ethanol to Buffer NT3 Concentrate
and mix. Keep bottle tightly closed to prevent evaporation
of ethanol.
Elution conditions are not optimal
•
If possible, use a slightly alkaline elution buffer like Buffer
NE (5 mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.5). When using nuclease-free
water for elution, make sure the pH value is 8.5. Elution
efficiencies drop dramatically at pH < 7.
Elution buffer volume is insufficient
•
Optimal elution is achieved for an elution buffer volume of
100–150 μL. Do not use less than 75 μL elution buffer.
Carry-over of ethanol
•
Suboptimal
performance of
PCR product
in sequencing
reactions,
problems with
downstream
applications
Be sure to remove all of ethanolic Buffer NT3 after the final
washing step. Dry the NucleoSpin® PCR Clean-up Binding
Plate for at least 10 min with maximum vacuum.
Elution of PCR products with TE buffer
•
EDTA may inhibit enzymatic reactions like DNA sequencing.
Repurify the PCR products and elute with NE buffer
or nuclease-free water. Alternatively, the DNA may be
precipitated with ethanol and redissolved in buffer NE buffer
or nuclease-free water.
Not enough DNA used in sequencing reactions
•
Quantitate DNA by agarose gel electrophoresis before
setting up sequencing reactions.
