1) When you are finished with the gel purification from Qiagen, place the used columns into the paired, used collection tubes.
2) Fill used column with 700 mL of 1 M HCl.
3) Store with cap closed in an airtight container for at least 24 hours (up to 30 days).
4) Once you have a bunch of columns and collection tubes in the 1 M HCl, to prepare a column for use:
Note: After 9 rounds of regeneration, columns have shown optimal performance in a series of assays (Siddappa et al. 2007).
FW HCl = 36.47; 37% HCl = 370 g/L » 10 M
Note: for HCl, 1 Molar = 1 Normal
Qiagen Buffer QBT (Equilibration Buffer)
[750 mM NaCl, 50 mM MOPS (pH 7.0),15% ethanol, 0.15% Triton X-100]
Dissolve 43.83g NaCl, 10.46g MOPS (free acid) in 800 mL dH2O. Adjust pH to 7.0. Add 150 mL 100% ethanol and 15 mL 10% triton X-100 solution. Adjust volume to 1 liter.
Store at room temperature.
