Quick-DNA/RNA kits

The Quick-DNA/RNA™ kits from Zymo Research rapidly isolate high quality genomic DNA (gDNA) and total RNA from cells, tissue, blood and biological fluids. Both gDNA and a broad range of RNAs are isolated without the use of phenol, with small RNAs and microRNAs ≥17 nt also recovered with no extra steps required.

Benefits of using the Quick-DNA/RNA kits
• Efficient isolation of gDNA and total RNA (including miRNA) from any sample source
• DNA/RNA is ready for all downstream applications including next generation sequencing (NGS)
• DNA/RNA is eluted in as little as 6 µl, suitable for high sensitivity assays

The Quick-DNA/RNA plus technology is universal

Universal sample compatibility

The Quick-DNA/RNA Plus technology is universal and accommodates any sample input including cultured cells, any tissue, blood and tough-to-lyse samples.

The Quick-DNA/RNA Plus kits enable single-cell detection

Single cell detection

HeLa cells were titrated down to a single cell, and DNA and total RNA were extracted using the Quick-DNA/RNA Microprep Plus Kit. Analysis by RT-qPCR shows high linear recovery of DNA & RNA down to the single-cell level (n=2).

The Quick-DNA/RNA Pathogen kit enables inhibitor-free detection in mosquitoes

Inhibitor free detection

Hard-to-lyse and inhibitor-rich mosquito vectors were homogenised using ZR BashingBeads™ and purified using Quick-DNA/RNA Pathogen. Ultra-pure, inhibitor-free West Nile Virus nucleic acids (spike-in) were detected by RT-qPCR down to 40 viral copies.

The Quick-DNA/RNA consistently produces high quality DNA and RNA


DNA and RNA isolated using the Quick-DNA/RNA FFPE Kit are high quality and consistently outperforms RNA isolated using a Supplier Q kit (Avg ΔCt = 3.6) as depicted by the RT-PCR amplification curves (n=4).
