Great results with low biomass samples.
Application Area: Microbiome
"Used this kit to extract DNA from several hundred low biomass microbiome samples. It worked much better than I expected. My success rate was high."

Works overall, needs improvement on the filtration materials.
Application Area:DNA extraction
"The kit works well for high-throughput workflows. One of the issues we have is that the filter plate quality is not the greatest as the filter becomes loose and falls out of the well during centrifugation. This causes us to lose the DNA material and cause us to repeat the process for those samples."

I got clean and good quality DNA for sequencing.
Application Area:Extract DNA from recall pellets
"The kit works well, I was able to get high DNA yield."
The ZymoBIOMICS DNA Kits are microbial DNA purification kits designed for purifying DNA from a variety of sample inputs that is immediately ready for microbiome or metagenome analyses. The ZymoBIOMICS lysis system eliminates bias associated with unequal lysis efficiencies of different organisms (e.g. Gram-negative/positive bacteria, fungus, protozoans, and algae), making it ideal for microbial community profiling. Uniform mechanical lysis of all microbes is achieved by bead beating with the innovative ultra-high density BashingBeads. This kit is equipped with our OneStep PCR Inhibitor removal technology, enabling PCR amplification from DNA derived from inhibitor-rich environmental samples. Purified DNA is ideal for all downstream applications including PCR, arrays, 16S rRNA gene sequencing, and shotgun sequencing. DNA Size is 15-20 kb.
