Quick-DNA Fungal Bacterial Midiprep Kit

Easily isolate DNA from tough-to-lyse fungi and bacteria.


  • Boost Detection: Included BashingBeads ensure complete lysis of tough-to-lyse samples.
  • Ultra-Pure: Ready for qPCR, Next-Gen Sequencing, arrays, etc.
  • Simple: Fastest workflow (≤ 20 minutes).


The Quick-DNA Fungal/Bacterial Midiprep Kit is designed for the simple and rapid isolation of DNA from tough-to-lyse fungi, including A. fumigatus, C. albicans, N. crassa, S. cerevisiae, S. pombe, as well as Gram (+/-) bacteria, algae, and protozoa. The procedure is easy and can be completed in minutes: fungal and/or bacterial samples are rapidly and efficiently lysed with our state of the art, ultra-high density BashingBeads. Zymo-Spin column technology is then used to isolate the DNA that is ideal for downstream molecular-based applications including PCR, array, etc.
