How an equivalent match works: Kits

Note: Only labs at US institutions can buy from Quartzy. If you would like to access this feature, please email

An equivalent match in Quartzy is a scientifically vetted alternative. Here is an example of how an equivalent kit might be offered to you through Quartzy's Effortless Quotes Program.

For kits, Quartzy’s science team makes sure that your process can continue as it would. We make sure things like targets, yield, downstream applications, and number of preps are the same or a better deal.

Here’s an example of a matching kit:

Manufacturer Qiagen Zymo Research IBI Scientific

Use Purification of ultrapure supercoiled
plasmid DNA with high yields. LyseBlue
(color indicator) prevents common
handling errors that lead to inefficient
cell lysis and incomplete precipitation.
Fast purification of transfection quality
plasmid DNA with help of innovative
colored buffers included in the kit
permit error-free visualization and
identification of complete bacterial
cell lysis and neutralization
Rapid isolation of plasmid DNA
from cultured bacterial cells. I-Blue
Lysis Buffer (an optional color indicator)
included to prevent
common handling errors, ensuring
efficient cell lysis and neutralization.
