- 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.

Q1: Are there any tips in optimizing bead beating conditions?
Q2: My lysate seems viscous. What is causing this to happen? How can I fix this?
Q3: Is it necessary to add beta-mercaptoethanol? Can this step be substituted or omitted?
Q4: When can an RNase A treatment be implemented in the protocol?
