Quick-DNA/RNA Miniprep Plus Kit

Isolate DNA and RNA from any sample


  • Quick & Easy: Extract DNA and RNA from any sample including cells, solid tissue, whole blood, biological liquids, FFPE tissue, environmental (plant/seed), swabs (stool, soil, microbial samples), etc.
  • Ultra-Pure: Ready for Next-generation sequencing, RT-qPCR, arrays, etc. DNase I included (Plus kit and MagBead only)


The Quick-DNA/RNA MiniPrep Plus kit combines Quick-DNA/RNA technology with the addition of DNA/RNA Shield, a unique preservation and lysis technology, and Proteinase K to enable easy, reliable, and rapid isolation from any biological sample including cells, solid tissue, and whole blood. The procedure uses Zymo-Spin column technology that results in high-quality genomic DNA and total RNA that is ready for any downstream application including reverse transcription, microarray, sequencing, etc.

“This kit was invaluable. I was able to get at least 1 ug of RNA and several hundred nanograms of DNA from each sample – all of it high quality. Much better than my previous experience with a different dual DNA/RNA isolation kit.”

– Julie P. (CU Anschutz Medical Campus)

“I usually recommend this kit for those who want to extract both DNA and RNA from a single sample. We have even had great quality and yield for single insect samples.”

– Robert B. (Harvard University)

“The kit is very economical for simultaneous extraction of high quality DNA and RNA from very small amount of biological samples. More particularly, RNA is of good quality that suits best for applications like next-generation sequencing (RNA-Seq).”

– Muhammad A. (Northwestern University)

“The kit is awesome! Besides saving a lot of time purifying gDNA and RNA at the same time, it also allows me to use cultures for other purposes since both can be extracted from the same sample.”

– Fernando B. (MIT)

“”Love this kit. I work with small mites and I get great results. I have tried other kits and none perform the same. Technical support is also great and they do their best to answer your questions and concerns.”
