pSpark® Universal

Highly Efficient, Sccurate & Easy-to-use System compatible with Blunt and TA DNA Cloning

pSpark® Universal is a highly efficient, accurate and easy-to-use DNA Cloning kit ideal for a broad range of PCR fragments cloning applications. There is a range of DNA Polymerases available that do not generate PCR products with identical ends: proofreading DNA polymerases leave blunt ends while blends of polymerases and non-proofreading DNA polymerases leaves 3´A overhangs. Therefore, it is necessary to employ different vectors to clone both kinds of PCR fragments.

pSpark® Universal DNA cloning kit has been designed to save time, looking for a kit for several cloning scenarios. It is mainly composed of two cloning vectors which allow blunt or TA DNA cloning. For blunt DNA cloning and TA DNA cloning, pSpark® II DNA Cloning vector and pSpark® TA DNA Cloning vector, respectively, are included.

Tables & Figures


Quality Control
  • Functional test using a 1.0 kb PCR fragment.
  • Functional test using a 600 pb PCR fragment.
  • Recommendations: All pSpark® DNA cloning vectors are stable for at least 1 month at 4 °C and even at 20 – 25 °C for up to 2 days although storage temperatures above -20 °C are not recommended. In case of incident, such as a power failure, stored vectors should be tested with the supplied control insert before considering discarding it. However, please note that T4 DNA Ligase is extremely temperature-sensitive and storage temperatures above    -20 °C inactivates the enzyme.
Storage, Shipping & Guarantee
  • Shipped in: Gel Pack.
  • Storage: -20 ºC (NON Frost-Free Freezer).
