The E.Z.N.A.® Soil DNA Kit is formulated to isolate high purity cellular DNA from soil samples typically containing humic acid and other inhibitors of PCR. This kit uses a novel and proprietary method to isolate genomic DNA from a variety of environmental samples without organic extractions.
This kit has been successfully used to isolate DNA from Gram-positive and -negative bacteria, fungi, yeast, and algae that inhabit a range of samples including clay, sandy, peaty, chalky, or loamy soil samples. Isolated DNA can be used for most downstream applications, including PCR, Southern blot, and NGS analysis.
- Reliable – Reproducible DNA purification from a variety of sample sources
- High quality – Ready-to-use DNA eliminating PCR inhibitors using proprietary inhibitor removal technology
- Yield – Efficient purification of DNA from even specialized samples
- Ease of use – Contains glass beads pre-filled in 2 mL vials
Comparison of Ct values. 20 µL SYBR Green qPCR reaction. 50 µL ZymoBIOMICS™ Microbial Community Standard was added to 200 mg soil samples and DNA was extracted using manufacturer’s recommended protocols. DNA was eluted in 100 µL for both manufacturers.
