"Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!" The Red Queen's words in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass (London, Macmillan, 1872) describe the feelings of lab managers faced with the scale at which data must be generated these days. Today's lab requires cost-effective and time-efficient systems that provide appropriate quality, quantity, and purity of plasmid DNA, the starting material for many lab applications. Unfortunately, because of the boom in high-throughput (HT) technologies, the scale of these applications is increasing such that there is simply no time to prepare each sample individually. In this profile, LabConsumer reviews some of the more widely used...
