The challenge with extraction from soil is isolating DNA or RNA without contamination by humic acids or other PCR inhibitors. The FastDNA Spin Kit for Soil and FastRNA Pro Soil Kits used in combination with the FastPrep instrument will help overcome any difficulties with complete lysis of all soil organisms including historically difficult sources such as eubacterial spores and endospores, gram positive bacteria, yeast, algae, nematodes and fungi, and isolation of pure DNA and RNA.
