Great product, quick recovery of genomic DNA!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area: Total genomic DNA extraction

"I absolutely love Zymo products. This product is quick to use and gives high concentrations of DNA that are actually quite high in quality as well (great 260/280 numbers). I would use this product over any other genomic DNA prep because of how quick it is, and how much DNA I isolate at the end. The DNA works great for gels amongst other downstream applications."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:For WGS, Sanger, and metagenomic sequencing

"The kit is one of the fastest and easiest to use gDNA kits available for multiple sample types. From our bacterial cultures, we always get top quality DNA (and lots of it!) from this kit. It is also one of the best single prep prices for gDNA extraction, I am just mad that I didn't switch to this kit sooner!"

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Plasmid prep

"I have been using the miniprep kit of another company but I have found this kit from Zymo really useful as it simpfies the addition of buffers which are colored differently unlike their counterparts. The DNA yield I obtain with this kit is usually good."

  • Application Area:Methylation analysis in cancer cell lines

"We are working on different cancer cell lines. The main aim of the work is to do genomic array to find out novel changes and methylation pattern in untreated and treated sample. This work absolutely required good quality of the DNA and we have used Zymo- Quick-DNA™ Universal Kit, which gave very good quality, quantity and reproducible result. When we have reproducible result with regards to the different person handling it would be the best to use to reproduce consistent result. Currently I am struggling to isolate viral RNA from low viral load blood sample. I am going to use Zymo RNA Universal Kit. This kit work very good with cell line and hope this would help in new work as well. Over all Zymo making life easy."

The best DNA extraction kit on the market
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:DNA extraction for downstream applications

"I work with microbes that are slow growers and don't produce much biomass. I tried several DNA extraction kits and all I got was low quality of 2 ng/uL. I tried this DNA extraction kit expecting similar results but I was surprised by the outcome: more than 20 ng/uL and good quality. Since it is advertised as Universal I started testing other type of samples (sand, mud, soil, water) and all results were amazing. High DNA concentrations and good quality. I am encouraging more people in my lab to test this kit and have better DNA. But what I love the most is the quick and effective lysis step. I used to prepare lysis buffers and incubate for hours, but this kit saves me time and also, money. Highly recommended. My next step is to try the RNA extraction kit."

Review date: 13 Jul 2016 | Quick-DNA™ Miniprep Plus

The Quick -DNA™ Miniprep Plus Kit is the easiest method for high yield total DNA extraction (e.g., genomic, plasmid, mitochondrial, viral) from any biological fluid, cell culture, or solid tissue sample. Innovative reagents and Zymo-Spin™ Column technologies allow for ultra-pure and concentrated genomic DNA ˃ 50 kb to be eluted in as little as 35 µl. Zymo-Spin™ Columns ensure no buffer retention. Purified DNA is RNA-free, bypassing the need for RNase A treatment and ensuring accurate quantification for applications like library preparations. Isolated DNA is suitable for immediate use in sensitive downstream applications including qPCR, DNA-seq, arrays, and methylation analysis.
