Reliable results every time, perfect for extracting SARS-CoV-2 from wastewater!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Extracting SARS-CoV-2 from wastewater

"This kit works great for extracting SARS-CoV-2 from wastewater. Very easy to use, great results every time and quick. The biggest plus to this kit is the viral concentration step that is incorporated in the protocol, instead of having to figure that out separately, so the whole workflow is optimized and straight forward. No painful filtration steps! Customer service also really goes above and beyond to help you, amazing!"

  • Application Area:SARS-CoV-2 surveillance

"Have been working on wastewater SARS-CoV-2 surveillance for over 9 months now. Tried several methods and kits for concentration of virus particles in wastewater. This kit from Zymo was one of the top performers. What makes it uniques is the water concentrating buffer. Will strongly recommend this product."

I continue to use this product.

  • Application Area:Virus detection in wastewater

"I used numerous kits for RNA extraction from wastewater samples. This kit gave the best yield when processing raw sewage (not sewage after concentration procedure). A question of mine that I raised was answered by your R&D after a week or so.."

The Zymo Environ Water RNA Kit simplifies COVID-19 wastewater surveillance by increasing viral enrichment, inactivating pathogens, and improving limits of detection. The use of Water Concentrating Buffer (WCB) promotes the pelleting of viral capsids and protein-associated RNA, increasing SARS-CoV-2 RNA yields by more than 8-fold. DNA/RNA Shield allows for safe handling as it has been validated for inactivation of pathogens including SARS-CoV-2. Finally, the workflow yields highly concentrated, PCR inhibitor-free RNA ready for downstream applications including RT-qPCR, RT-ddPCR, and NGS.
