qiagen minipreps

Qiagen is king of the minipreps. You put 1.5ml of bacterial culture in and you get plasmid DNA out. Reliable, quick, and easy enough to teach to your ten year old kid, as long as they don't try to drink any of the reagents. The DNA that comes out of them is clean enough to sequence immediately, or digest or transform, some people even transfect it.
