Great reproducible results!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Quantitation of changes in microbial communities after exposure to a herbal drug

"I have used two other kits and was at the end of my robe as, after isolating DNA from rat feces, I get to PCR and nothing appears. Turns out the drug used to induce colitis in the animals has a PCR inhibitory effect. I did a clean-up and there are still traces of this PCR inhibitor carried over and no PCR results. I shifted to the Zymo kit and, from the first time, the PCR worked great. DNA was of high quality and quantity as well."

Great results! Saves time.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analysis of abundance of specific bacterial phyla and genera in rat feces before and after treatment

"I used this product to make sure all PCR inhibitors were removed as recommended by a colleague. I had been using one of the top of the line products that unfortunately did not remove the PCR inhibitor which was dextran sulphate sodium salt (DSS) that I had to use in the animal model to induce colitis. This kit had extra steps that made sure the DNA was of high quality and free of any PCR inhibitors. All replica were having consistently pure and high grade DNA as tested by the absorption ratios, concentrations and gel electrophoresis for integrity of the DNA samples extracted."

Great kit at an affordable price.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Extract bacterial DNA from mouse fecal or cecal content

"I think the fecal DNA mini prep kit has a satisfactory quality which allows me to extract bacterial directly from the mouse fecal and cecal content. The DNA preps are of low or no contamination with organic stuff such that it can be used directly in the downstream applications such as PCRs or deep-sequencing."

Good results.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Avian microbiome research

"This kit successfully extracts DNA from bird nest samples (swabs). DNA yields are low but most of the samples amplified on a regular PCR. Extraction procedure is quite simple and fast, sales people where available for help all the time. Price is close to other commercial available kits."

Easy to use, consistently good DNA output
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Fecal DNA extractions

"The kit is easy to use, despite a little assembly, and we use the output DNA for metagenomics an PCR/marker gene sequencing with great results. Some kit to kit comparisons we've done in house with other manufacturers show this kit being quite favorable. Great customer support from Zymo as well."

Wonderful product to isolate good quality DNA from fecal matter for sequencing
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Microbiome research

"Kit is very easy to use and the instructions are very straightforward in the manual. Got reproducible results each time I used this kit to prepare DNA from mice fecal matter. I would highly recommend this kit. "

Great kit
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Stool samples

"Kit was easy to use. I did not have a bead beater, but heating the sample at 98 degrees for 5 minutes helped get the stool into solution. Ran qRT-PCR for selected bacteria and got good results."

Review date: 12 Jul 2016 | Quick-DNA™ Fecal/Soil Microbe Miniprep Kit

Quick-DNA™ Fecal/Soil Microbe Miniprep Kit is designed for the simple and rapid isolation of inhibitor-free, PCR-quality host cell and microbial DNA from a variety of sample sources including humans, birds, rats, mice, cattle, etc. The procedure is easy and can be completed in minutes: fecal samples are rapidly and efficiently lysed by bead beating with our state of the art, ultra-high density BashingBeads™. Fast-Spin column technology is then used to isolate the DNA which is subsequently filtered to remove humic acids/polyphenols that can inhibit PCR. Eluted DNA is ideal for downstream molecular-based applications including PCR, arrays, genotyping, methylation detection, etc.
