The ZymoBIOMICS™ DNA/RNA Mini Kit enables the rapid, robust and simple purification of high quality, inhibitor-free DNA and total RNA (≥17 nucleotides) in parallel from any sample. Using an innovative lysis system which enables efficient and unbiased lysis of microbes, the ZymoBIOMICS™ DNA/RNA Mini kit also includes DNA/RNA Shield™ to preserve nucleic acids at ambient temperatures giving an unbiased molecular snapshot of the sample. The DNA and total RNA is suitable for use in 16S rRNA gene sequencing, shotgun metagenomic sequencing, arrays, PCR and other sensitive applications.

ZymoBIOMICS DNA/RNA Mini kit supports co-purification & parallel purification
Samples underwent bias-free lysis using DNA/RNA Shield™. Left: Human stool total nucleic acid (DNA & RNA) was isolated with ZymoBIOMICS DNA/RNA Miniprep kit using the co-purification method. The resulting nucleic acid is high quality. Elutions were analysed in a 1% TAE/agarose/EtBr gel. The size marker is a 1 kb ladder. Right: Human stool genomic DNA & total RNA was isolated with the ZymoBIOMICS DNA/RNA Miniprep kit using the parallel purification method. The resulting DNA & RNA is highly intact. Quality was assessed by Agilent 2200 TapeStation®.
