|DNA Clean & Concentrator MagBead Kit
The DNA Clean & Concentrator MagBead Kit is magnetic bead based clean-up kit that can purify DNA from PCR, enzymatic reactions, impure extractions, and other sources. The MagBinding Bead technology provides a rapid and scalable workflow that can be adapted for low to high-throughput automated method for purification and concentration of DNA.
|Quick-16S Plus NGS Library Prep Kit (V4)
The Quick-16S Plus NGS Library Prep Kit (V4) is the fastest and simplest NGS library prep targeting the V4 region of the 16S rRNA gene for high-throughput sequencing. The automation-friendly protocol utilizes a premixed amplification plate and a single qPCR/PCR for combined targeted amplification and barcode addition. Pooling by equal volume and a single clean-up of the final library, rather than massive AMPure® bead-based clean-ups, simplifies the library prep process. Additional library quantification analysis such as TapeStation® analysis or gel electrophoresis are not necessary. With these features, the workflow dramatically reduces the hands-on time of library preparation to only 30 minutes.

Q1: Can you provide a list of the tested plant species? We currently do not have a list of plants, aside from what we have shown in the protocols: – A.thaliana – Juniper – Milkweed Leaf – Milkweed Leaflet – Milkweed Pre-Flowering Bud – Corn Kernel – Sunflower Seed – Nicotiana sp. Q2: My lysate seems viscous. What is causing this to happen? How can I fix this? A viscous sample can indicate incomplete sample lysis. Try using less of your sample and optimize bead beating conditions (duration, speed, time) to ensure samples are thoroughly lysed. After bead beating, pellet the cell debris before moving on. Adding more Genomic Lysis buffer to the lysate can help dilute and deproteinate the sample, making the sample less viscous and more suitable for DNA recovery. Q3: Are there any tips in optimzing bead beating conditions? We have validated our kits with both high-speed homgenizers and low-speed disruptors. We highly recommend users to optimize their bead beating conditions for their own instruments. We recommend using a 2 ml-tube adapter to ensure that the bead beating is efficent (do not use adapters made of foam). For high-speed homogenizers, we recommend a total of 5 mins bead beating (1 min interval at 6.5 m/s with 5 mins rest, repeat 5 times). For low-speed cell disruptors, we recommend 30 mins at max speed. Q4: What is the purpose of Zymo-Spin III-HRC step? Environmental samples often contain inhibitors such as polyphenolics, humic/fulvic acids, tannins, melanins, etc. that often co-purify and affect downstream applications such as PCR. The Zymo-Spin III-HRC column removes these polyphenolic PCR inhibitors to recover DNA that is ready for sensitive downstream applications such as Next-Gen Sequencing, quantitative PCR, etc. Q5: Is it necessary to add beta-mercaptoethanol? Can this step be substituted or omitted? Addition of beta-mercaptoethanol is recommended to enhance sample lysis, but can be substituted with dithiothreitol (DTT, final concentration of 10 mM). However, if bead beating is optimized and lysis is efficient, the addition of BME is not necessary and can be omitted. Q6: When can an RNase A treatment be implemented in the protocol? The Quick-DNA kits recover RNA-free genomic DNA. The selective chemistry allows for binding of double stranded DNA to the column and for RNA to flow through. No RNase A treatment is required when processing samples within kit capacity.
|ZymoBIOMICS DNA Miniprep Kit
The ZymoBIOMICS DNA Kits are microbial DNA purification kits designed for purifying DNA from a variety of sample inputs that is immediately ready for microbiome or metagenome analyses. The ZymoBIOMICS lysis system 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. Uniform mechanical lysis of all microbes is achieved by bead beating with the innovative ultra-high density BashingBeads. This kit is equipped with our OneStep PCR Inhibitor removal technology, enabling PCR amplification from DNA derived from inhibitor-rich environmental samples. Purified DNA is ideal for all downstream applications including PCR, arrays, 16S rRNA gene sequencing, and shotgun sequencing. DNA Size is 15-20 kb.
|ZymoBIOMICS DNA/RNA Miniprep Kit
The ZymoBIOMICS DNA/RNA Miniprep Kit is designed for purifying DNA and RNA from a wide array of sample inputs (e.g. feces, soil, plant, water, and biofilms) that is ready for microbiome or metagenome analyses. The ZymoBIOMICS innovative lysis system eliminates bias associated with unequal lysis efficiencies of different organisms (e.g. Gram-negative/positive bacteria, fungus, protozoans, and algae). The provided DNA/RNA Shield preserves nucleic acids at ambient temperatures, providing an unbiased molecular snapshot of the sample. The procedure uses Zymo-Spin Column technology that results in high-quality DNA and total RNA (including small RNAs 17-200 nt) that is free of PCR inhibitors (e.g. polyphenols, humic acids, and fulvic acids). Ready for RT-PCR, arrays, sequencing, etc.
