Whatever environmental samples we deal with, the kit is perfect for unusual samples.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze environmental samples from the subsurface

"Although we have "Complicated" samples due to elevated salinity with seemingly low amount of microbiota in subsurface samples, this kit was our success to extract sufficient genomic DNA from the samples."

Satisfactory results with isolation of DNA and subsequent applications of DNA.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Extraction of DNA from soil samples

"The kit allows us to isolate DNA from very difficult soil samples as well as water samples. The major problem problem with soil and water samples is that there are lots of inhibitors in the initial samples. These inhibitors make downstream applications of isolated DNA problematic, such as PCR, qPCR, Illumina sequencing. However, we routinely use the kit to isolate DNA and subsequently, perform PCR, qPCR, and Illumina sequencing with satisfactory results."

Easy to use and efficient for shallow marine sediment DNA extraction.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:NGS-based survey of marine sedimentary communities

"I formally tested the efficiency of this product and a competitor to extract chromosomal DNA from Pacific and Arctic deep sea sediments. I am very satisfied with the results and highly recommend this kit particularly for work in shallow marine sediment. The DNA yields and quality are perfectly compatible for subsequent next-generation sequencing. "

Preferred soil extraction product. Very simple to use, excellent results.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Analyze microbial colonies in soil samples

"Definitely my preferred soil extraction product. Very simple to use, and it doesn't take a lot of time. It comes with everything you need right in the kit. Excellent results and reproducibility I usually only require one clean-up stage."

Great DNA, great research!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Microbiology fo soil

"I tried a lot of different products, but it's the best because I have a good quality of DNA and i can continue to have good quality with heavy soils (agronomy and polluted)"

Isolate Pure DNA from Cells Present in Soil or Other Environmental Samples!

  • Thorough lysis in seconds of any microorganism present in environmental samples.
  • Ready-to-use DNA for quantitative and qualitative characterization of microbial soil communities.
  • Excellent reproducibility for an optimum assay-to-assay consistency.
  • Total removal of humic acids and PCR inhibitors for a successful investigation of microbial diversity.

The FastDNA™ SPIN Kit for Soil is designed to efficiently isolate bacterial, fungal, plant and animal genomic DNA from soil and environmental samples. Up to 500 mg soil are processed by the FastPrep®-24 5G or and any bead beating homogenizers with the Lysing Matrix E tubes designed to efficiently lyse all microorganisms including difficult sources such as eubacterial spores and endospores, gram positive bacteria and yeast. The released DNA is purified by a silica-based spin filter method and is suitable for PCR and other downstream applications.
