A Magnetic Particle-Based Method for Purifying PCR Products from Solution Protocol The MagneSil system can selectively isolate PCR products that are more than 150-bp long from primers and primer -dimers. The technology can be used with a number of robotic workstations, including Beckman Coulter’s Biomek 2000 and FX Laboratory Automation Workstations. The procedure can also be carried out manually. Typical recovery is more than 80% for a 1-kb product with negligible carryover of primers or nucleotides.
Dealing with Carryover Contamination in PCR: An Enzymatic Strategy Protocol Protocol for dealing with carryover contamination in PCR- enzymatic strategy. Repeated use of PCR and manipulation of its products cause aerosols that can contaminate neighboring samples and work areas. Such "carryover contamination" can be prevented by including dUTP in place of dTTP for all amplification reactions.

Differential Display-PCR Protocol Method uses PCR to amplify and display many cDNAs derived from the mRNAs of a given cell or tissue type. The method relies on two different types of synthetic oligonucleotides: anchored antisense primers and arbitrary sense primers. A typical anchored primer is complementary to approx. 13 nucleotides of the poly(A) tail of mRNA and the adjacent two nucleotides of the transcribed sequence.
Genetic Engineering with PCR Protocol Method describes how to modify the termini of PCR products by introducing restriction sites and other features. To reduce the chance of contamination with exogenous DNAs, prepare and use a special set of reagents and solutions for PCR only. Bake all glassware for 6 hours at 150°C and autoclave all plasticware.
Home-made Taq Polymerase Purification PCR polymerase costs can be high. If you are willing to work, you can produce bacteria containing the clone. It appears to produce lots of Taq and is quite stable. The proceedure takes 4 days start to (15 000 units of Taq) finish. The Taq also appears ver
Long and Accurate PCR Protocol Protocol illustrates the rules of successful long PCR: No more than 1 ng of template DNA is used per microliter of PCR in a 100-µl reaction; approximately 0.1 µl of KlentaqLA (not plain Taq) is used per kilobase of target (for targets >10 kb, 1-1.3 µl of enzyme should be used); the Mg++ concentration is considered as the excess over the level of dNTPs.
