Great products! Highly recommend!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area: Extract DNA from rodent feces for 16s sequencing

"I always get a high yield from this product. I've extracted almost a thousands feces samples with this and it always gives me good yield and is very easy to follow. All of my feces DNA yield was higher than 200ng/ul."

Easy and high quality.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Isolating bacterial DNA, microbial genetics

"This product is simple enough for undergraduate students to use but give high quality and concentration so that the samples can be sent for sequencing. The manual is easy to understand and the easy to mark reagent bottles mean my students always know what to use when. My lab relies on this product for most of our work."

Essential kit for a genomics lab, independently of the nature of the microorganism.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Molecular biology, NGS

"Essential kit for HMW DNA from fungi or bacterial cultures for NGS sequencing. Just to spin down cells, wash and start lysis. From cells to DNA, for 30 samples, 1hour. The limiting step is to open and close, screw tap tubes, and transfer supernatant to columns. Ahead of this, the kit is quick enough to perform several runs (30 rxn) in large series. Technical service responds quickly enough and has good know how. "

Finally, a kit that works!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Cyanobacteria DNA extraction

"This is the only kit we have found that effectively extracts DNA from the cyanobacteria species we work with. So, of course, it is a great value to us because it actually works! We get good yields from this kit. It has options for using either cells from plated cultures or from liquid cultures which makes it versatile. Zymo has always been customer-friendly and is responsive to questions and comments."

  • Application Area:Extraction of wastewater for SARS-CoV-2

"With this kit, we were able to produce highly accurate and recoverable results to assist with the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Without using the Zymo kit, communities would not have been able to rely on our results to assist with their fight against the pandemic."

  • Application Area:Microbiome

"This kit was a quick and effective method for purification of DNA from tough fungal extractions. I ran out of a buffer and was able to easily obtain more from the company. The kit is more affordable than other similar kits from other companies, so I'd purchase it again."

Great DNA yield extracted from hard to lyse fungal and soil organisms.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:DNA extraction of filamenetous fungus and soil bacterium

"Teaching and conducting microbiological research at a small undergraduate institution with limited resources, I had to search for a product that was both affordable and easy to use in the classroom as well as in undergraduate research projects. I found just what I was looking for. The protocol is simple to follow at every level and we obtained a high yield of DNA from all of the organisms tested to date. It was also met our price point which was also great!"

  • Application Area:Identification of the microbes isolated form waste-water treatment facility

"I study the symbiotic association between microalgal-associated bacterial assemblages isolated from wastewater holding tanks to enhance biofuel production. In this regard, it is an essential task to identify the type of algae and bacterial species that are in close association. I isolated several bacterial and algal species from the wastewater and subjected to DNA extraction using this Zymo product. I found it super easy and was really quick. I performe sequencing on this extracted DNA and always get good results."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Identification of bacterial and fungal strains isolated from the environment

"My work involves the identification of microbes for the purpose of bioremediation of heavy metals. To do this, I collect the soil samples from heavy metal contaminated sites followed by isolation of microbes. To identify the microbial isolates, I used this kit to isolate DNA and subjected it to 16S /18S rRNA gene sequencing. I have been using this kit for the past two years and found that fewer steps were involved during the extraction procedure as compared to other companies' kits. The result was great and never had a problem with DNA yield and quantity. Moreover, the price is very low compared to other manufacturers. Additionally, I have cited this product in many publications."

  • Application Area:Extract DNA from pure cultures and environmental samples

"The ZR Fungal/Bacterial DNA MiniPrep allows me to efficiently extract DNA in a short amount of time with high purity and high concentration. I never need to worry about repeating the DNA extraction step because this kit is so effective, all the time. However, as with all Zymo products, I wish it was slightly cheaper."

  • Application Area:DNA isolation from lichen tissue samples

"Our lab trialed approximately ten different DNA isolation kits from about 7 different biotech companies. This kit from Zymo was one of only 2 that yielded ANY DNA from our samples. The Zymo kit produced a very slightly lower yield (about 5-10ng/ul less per sample with most samples in the 40-60ng/ul range). However, the Zymo kits are capable of yielding plenty of quality DNA for downstream use in approximately one QUARTER of the time and cost less. Lichen tissue also requires much more aggressive homogenization media than what comes with the kit, but due to the tough resilient nature of lichen tissues that was to be expected and holds true for every kit trialed. "

Review date: 12 Jul 2016 | Quick-DNA™ Fungal/Bacterial Miniprep Kit

The Quick-DNA™ Fungal/Bacterial Miniprep Kit is designed for the simple and rapid isolation of DNA from tough-to-lyse fungi, including A. fumigatus, C. albicans, N. crassa, S. cerevisiae, S. pombe , as well as Gram (+/-) bacteria, algae, and protozoa. The procedure is easy and can be completed in minutes: fungal and/or bacterial samples are rapidly and efficiently lysed with our state of the art, ultra-high density BashingBeads™. Fast-Spin column technology is then used to isolate the DNA that is ideal for downstream molecular-based applications including PCR, array, etc.
