  I don't know about the cuvettes, but one can use a vector that has tandem
XcmI sites which, when cut, will leave a T overhang analogous to that of the
TA kit (and it's much, much cheaper and bulkable).

I think the Cloning Vector Collection may have a few of these vectors.  You
can find it at:


They were very helpful in getting plasmids that I needed.  It's very
economical (i.e. free!)

Good luck!!
