pSpark® II DNA Cloning Kit

pSpark® II DNA Cloning Kit

For highly Efficient, Accurate & Easy general Cloning with classical MCS, without the use of Toxic Genes

Product Overview:

pSpark® II is a highly efficient, accurate and easy-to-use DNA Cloning system based on a breakthrough technology for cloning blunt ended DNA generated by PCR with a proofreading or high fidelity DNA polymerases.

The vector is prepared by digestion of pSpark® II at the EcoRV site before treating both ends to prevent vector self-ligation. The end treatment is supported by a proprietary know-how that guarantees a higher cloning efficiency than with simply a desphorylated vector.

Advantages & Features

  • Unprecedented high cloning efficiency: more than 2,500 positive colonies expected under optimal conditions.
  • Great efficiency: over hundreds positive colonies with few nanograms of insert.
  • High stability: eliminates cloning bias or pitfalls.
  • Time-saving protocol: no hidden steps such as phosphorylation, just ligation after PCR and transformation.
  • Powerful: clone from less than 1 ng/kb to up to 14 kb; obtain 4-fold more positive colonies using 3-fold less DNA insert.
  • Easy-to-use: eliminate recombinant screening due to its minumum background (lower than 1%), avoiding “suicide” strategies from toxic genes.
  • Great versatility: compatible with any protocol, proofreading Polymerase, Competent Cells, ligation time or primers.
  • Flexible: ligation time from 10 minutes to overnight.
  • Robust for every DNA size: just 6.7 ng per kb of insert needed for optimal ligation.
  • High cost-saving:  reduces your cloning costs as no expensive phosphorylated primers are needed.
  • Eliminates positive selection vector.
  • Risk-free: product covered by our Quality 100% Guarantee.

Quality Control

  • Functional test using a 1.0 kb PCR fragment.

Advice

  • Recommendations: All pSpark® DNA cloning vectors are stable for at least 1 month at 4 °C and even at 20 – 25 °C for up to 2 days although storage temperatures above -20 °C are not recommended. In case of incident, such as a power failure, stored vectors should be tested with the supplied control insert before considering discarding it. However, please note that T4 DNA Ligase is extremely temperature-sensitive and storage temperatures above    -20 °C inactivates the enzyme.

Storage, Shipping & Guarantee​

  • Shipped in: Gel pack.
  • Storage: -20 ºC (NON Frost-Free Freezer).
  • Shelf Life: 24 months from the date of purchase, if it is properly stored.
