Microbiome DNA isolation

One of the main issues in microbiomics research today is the difficulty of extracting DNA from microbial samples without introducing bias. 

The ZymoBIOMICS DNA kits are microbial DNA purification kits designed for purifying DNA from a variety of sample inputs for microbiomic or metagenomic analyses. The kits include the ZymoBIOMICS lysis system which eliminates bias associated with unequal lysis efficiencies of different organisms (e.g. gram-negative/positive bacteria, fungus, protozoans and algae), making it ideal for microbial community profiling. The OneStep PCR Inhibitor removal technology enables PCR amplification from DNA derived from inhibitor-rich environmental samples. 

These kits are manufactured to be bioburden free, preventing sample contamination during the extraction process.

Purified DNA from these microbial purification kits is ideal for all downstream applications including:
• Arrays
• 16S rRNA gene sequencing
• Shotgun sequencing
