Dependable high quality plasmid DNA purification

Experienced scientists, using proven protocols and quality-controlled systems and reagents prepare purified plasmid DNA (pDNA) for GeneArt Plasmid Services. Our goal is to provide consistent high quality plasmid preparations for research applications and preclinical studies.

Highly pure, homogeneous plasmid DNA: transfection/transformation-ready

  • Extremely low levels of endotoxin: <0.1 EU/µg pDNA (generally considered endotoxin-free). We can provide pDNA with <0.01 EU/µg pDNA if desired
  • Milligram- to gram-scale production
  • Production in shaker culture or bioreactor
  • Delivery options: liquid, with or without cool packs; or frozen on dry ice
  • Fill & Finish Service available—get your pDNA aliquotted and labeled for immediate use, per your specifications

Applications include:

  • Transfection into mammalian cells
  • Immunization studies
  • Preclinical studies
  • Toxicological studies

Two Ways to Order

Download the Plasmid Order Form , enter your project using Microsoft Excel, and email it to the GeneArt Plasmid Services team at

When setting up your project online, choose “plasmid preparation” and follow the instructions to enter your plasmid preparation requirements.

Fill & finish service

Choose the GeneArt Fill & Finish Service to receive your plasmid DNA ready to use: separated into aliquots and labeled according to your specifications. Just tell us the DNA concentration you need, how many aliquots you want, and the volume per aliquot. The Fill & Finish Service can provide 50–5,000 aliquots of your plasmid DNA, and it includes the tubes, labeling, and packaging.
