Invent Biotechnologies MinuteTM chloroplast isolation kit is composed of optimized chloroplast isolation buffers and filter cartridges with 2.0 ml collection tubes. The kit is designed to rapidly isolate intact chloroplasts from fresh plant tissues (leaves, seeds and soft stems etc.). Due to the use of filter cartridges with pre-defined pore size and thickness, intact chloroplasts can be isolated from 50-200 mg fresh plant tissues in less than 5 min. Unlike many other methods that require 1-10+ gram tissues for chloroplast isolation, this kit can quickly obtain 1 X 106 to 1 X 107 intact chloroplasts (>90% intact) from fresh plant leaves.

Kit includes: 



Buffer A (with 5 grams dissociation beads)

25 ml

Buffer B

25 ml

Protein Extraction Filter Cartridges

50 units

Collection Tubes with Caps

50 units

Plastic Rods

2 units
