The Automated Soil DNA Kit extracts microbial DNA from all soil types and other environmental samples. The isolated DNA has the highest level of purity allowing for more successful PCR and QPCR amplification of organisms from the sample. The kit is ideal for processing all environmental samples including difficult types containing a high humic acid content such as compost, sediment, and manure. PCR analysis has been performed to detect a variety of organisms including both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, fungi, algae, and actinomycetes, and nematodes. The Soil DNA Kit distinguishes itself from other kits with a patented humic substance/brown color removal procedure that removes PCR inhibitors from even the most difficult soil types, promoting successful downstream PCR analysis.
Optimized for use with bead based homogenizers Processes all soil types, including difficult environmental samples Patented technology removes 100% of humic substances and PCR inhibitors Rapid protocol enables purification of DNA from soil in 30 minutes A
Nucleic Acid Type
Applications include biodefense, soil-borne pathogen detection, agriculture and zoology research.
Purified DNA can be directly used in downstream applications without the need for further purification.
All the kit components are guaranteed for at least 12 months from the date of purchase.
