Good results.

  • Application Area:Microbiome

"Mini Kit works very well. What would be really cool and make life easier, would be if you would color code the vials as well as the tubes columns. So you start with the red solution you load on the red column ... next green and so on. This would reduce the error rate as well increase the speed you can work. Also, the names of the solutions and vials could be simpler."

Good kit for DNA extraction across a wide matrix of sample types.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:PCR, qPCR to quantify species in samples and assess metabolic capabilities of bacterial populations

"This kit will reliably extract decent quality DNA from our samples (feces and supernatant). We study mostly gram positive organisms so we use a reliable homogenizer to crack open the cells and have worked with tech support at Zymo to optimize the protocol to get cleaner, higher yields. If you try the kit and find that you aren’t getting the results that you expect, definitely give tech support a call. They have always been very helpful in providing tips to increase quantity and quality of DNA. We have been using this kit for years and appreciate how Zymo updates it when they develop improvements."

A quality product with reasonable price suitable for small-scale projects.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Processing sewage water samples for microbiome analysis

"The products were certainly useful, specifically designed for the work we do on a regular bais. They were reasonably priced and easy to use, and most of all produced quality products for our work compatible with previous more expensive products. However, the capacity of it is somewhat inadequate for our daily use but will come back to it on suitable projects."

Great product yielding consistent results.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Extract DNA for microbiome studies

"We have been using Zymo products for years, and the quality has always been consistent. Price is very reasonable and in line with the competition, and the yields are consistently similar or better than other manufacturers. What makes the difference, though, is the fact that for most of our downstream applications (microbiome-based strategies, using either 16S rRNA gene PCR and sequencing, or library prep for meta genomic shotgun sequencing), the Zymo kits generally yields lower failure rates across our samples, which can be a huge time saver (less sample troubleshooting)!"

Rating: 3.7

"The kit is easy to use, works fine, the DNA quality is very good, but the amount of DNA from the tissue is poor. When you've got small amounts of tissue it's not the best option."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Microbiome characterization

"I highly recommend this product if you work with microbes, for characterizing the microbiome of any source! It can be used even in complex sources, ie. whole insects. The added standards helps to determine the bias due to specific extraction protocols from non-standard sources."

It’s fantastic! I hope that all researchers switch to it for microbiome analysis
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Bacterial DNA extraction from complex tissues

"This is a kit unique in its actual layout, no other supplier has an equivalent format. The success of the kit relies on the bacterial communities control incorporated that allows you to compare your results among different sequencing platforms, or even between your precedent bacterial DNA extraction methods from complex samples to determine the microbiome composition."

Review date: 17 Jan 2017 | ZymoBIOMICS™ DNA Mini Kit

The ZymoBIOMICS™ DNA Mini Kit is designed for purifying DNA from a wide array of sample inputs (e.g. feces, soil, water, and biofilms), that is immediately ready for microbiome or metagenome analyses.

The ZymoBIOMICS™ innovative 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. Unbiased mechanical lysis of tough microbes is achieved by bead beating with the innovative ZymoBIOMICS™ ultra-high density BashingBeads™ and validated using the ZymoBIOMICS™ Microbial Community Standard, as shown in Figure 3. In addition, the ZymoBIOMICS™ DNA Mini kit is equipped with Zymo’s Proprietary OneStep™ PCR Inhibitor removal technology enabling PCR from the most PCR prohibitive environmental samples rich in humic and fulvic acids, tannins, melanin, and other polyphenolic compounds.

Coupling state-of-the-art lysis technology with Zymo-Spin™ purification technology results in superior yields of ultra-pure DNA ideal for all downstream applications including PCR, arrays, 16S rRNA gene sequencing, and shotgun sequencing.
