Quick-DNA Plant/Seed 96 Kit

Quick-DNA Plant/Seed 96 Kit


  • Rapid, simple, high-throughput (96-well) method for DNA isolation from tough-to-lyse plant and seed samples.
  • Ultra-high density BashingBeads are fracture resistant and chemically inert.
  • Zymo-Spin technology coupled with filtration removes polyphenolic PCR inhibitors from the DNA product.


The Quick-DNA Plant/Seed 96 Kit is a plant DNA isolation kit designed for the simple, rapid isolation of inhibitor-free, PCR-quality DNA from a variety of plant sample sources including leaves, stems, buds, flowers, fruit, seeds, etc. The procedure is easy and can be completed in minutes: plant samples are rapidly and efficiently lysed by bead beating with our state of the art, ultra-high density BashingBeads. Polysaccharides, lipids, and polyphenols/tannins are removed from the DNA using our Zymo-Spin technology. The eluted DNA is ideal for downstream molecular-based applications including PCR, arrays, etc.
