  • Application Area:Extraxtion for detection of Sars-CoV-2

"In difficult times, where availablity was scarce, support was able to allocate some kits for us. Instructions were very easy to follow, automation was simple to set up, and results were consistent. "

Zymo kit would probably get even easier with the 96 well spin plate kit.

Easy and consistent.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Extract RNA from filtered wastewater

"This kit works like any other column-based extraction kit, therefore it was super easy to learn and use. I was unable to reduce my volume enough to fit in the spin column, so I have to spin some of my samples, discard the flow-through, and repeat with the rest of the sample. Sometimes, I have to do this up to 4 times. Still, I consistently get good results and have never had any issues using this kit. I do get some carryover of PCR inhibitors, but coming from municipal wastewater this isn't too surprising and can be easily remedied with a 1:10 dilution of my RNA before RT-PCR."

Flexible, fast, and reliable extraction kit!
Rating: 5.0

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

"This extraction kit has so far provided consistent results and shows good recovery of viral targets. We began using this due to the consistency of the filters and repeatability for replicates. It is also straightforward and so far very adaptable to different sample types such as clinical samples and even wastewater samples. Using it is very straightforward and is easy to train lab personnel on its use. The DNA/RNA shield that the kit includes is also very versatile and is great for storing RNA and DNA material for longer time periods while maintaining the integrity of the sample material. This is a great value for the quality of results we've been able to produce with it and I highly recommend it for Viral RNA extraction."

Efficient, fast and simple access to target nucleic acid.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Extracting SARS-CoV-2 RNA from some complex specimens, such as blood, saliva, and swab

"We have used this product extensively in our SARS-CoV-2 project. It can extract target RNA fragments efficiently and stably. Even trace amounts of target RNA in the blood can be effectively captured. With the strong support of this product, we successfully completed two projects and published them on Science Advance and JCI, respectively. At present, the product is still continuing to support another major project of ours. The product is satisfactory as always!"

I like the simplicity and speed of the kit - giving it another try.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Extraction of RNA from viral preps for sequencing

"I've always used a different kit to get viral RNA from preps, but it was unavailable. I'm also using DNA/RNA shield with this kit as it is adapted for samples stored in that buffer. It was very easy to use, but I found I got a lower yield per ul and overall with the same starting sample as I would normally extract from. I'm repeating it with 3x the amount hoping to see an increase in the yield."
