ZR Fungal/Bacterial DNA Kits

Simple, Rapid Isolation of DNA from Tough-To-Lyse Fungi & Bacteria

P Isolate PCR-quality DNA from fungi and bacteria P Efficient processing with ultrahigh density BashingBeads P Does not require the use of organic denaturants or lytic enzymes (e.g., Zymolyase)
The ZR Fungal/Bacterial DNA MicroPrep, ZR Fungal/Bacterial DNA MiniPrep, ZR Fungal/ Bacterial DNA MidiPrep, and ZR-96 Fungal/ Bacterial DNA Kit are designed for the simple and rapid isolation of DNA from tough-to-lyse fungi, including A. fumigatus, C. albicans, N. crassa, S. cerevisiae, S. pombe, as well as Gram (+/-) bacteria, algae, and protozoa. The procedures are easy and can be completed in minutes: fungal and/or bacterial samples are rapidly and efficiently lysed with our state of the art, ultra-high density BashingBeads. Fast-Spin column or plate technology is then used to isolate the DNA that is ideal for downstream molecular-based applications including PCR, array, etc.

Specifications Sample Sources

Gram (+) bacteria, Gram (-) bacteria, Yeast, Filamentous fungi, Unicellular algae, Filamentous algae, Protists
Our state of the art BashingBeads are constructed of the highest quality, most dense ceramic material available today. They are used when thorough sample homogenization/lysis is required by the researcher. DNA shearing by physical and chemical methods is minimized since the beads are fracture resistant and chemically inert. They are unique amongst the lysis matrices offered by other companies for DNA isolation from tough-to-lyse materials.

Processing Times

ZR Fungal/Bacterial DNA MicroPrep: 10 min. ZR Fungal/Bacterial DNA MiniPrep: 10 min. ZR Fungal/Bacterial DNA MidiPrep: 20 min. ZR-96 Fungal/Bacterial DNA Kit: 40 min.

DNA Purity
A260/A280 > 1.8

DNA isolated from S. cerevisiae (spores) and E. coli using the ZR Fungal/ Bacterial DNA MiniPrep is high quality and structurally intact. Equivalent amounts of yeast and bacteria were processed using the ZR Fungal/Bacterial DNA MiniPrep or the kit from Supplier M. Equal volumes of eluted DNA were then analyzed in a 0.8% (w/v) agarose/ethidium bromide gel. The size marker is a 1 kb ladder (Zymo Research).

ZR Fungal/Bacterial DNA MiniPrep Short Protocol

1. Add sample to a ZR BashingBead Lysis Tube & process in a cell disruptor at maximum speed for 5 min. 2. Centrifuge the ZR BashingBead Lysis Tube at 10,000 x g for 1 min. 3. Transfer 400 l supernatant to a Zymo-Spin IV Spin Filter in a Collection Tube & centrifuge at 7,000 rpm for 1 min. 4. Add 1.2 ml Fungal/Bacterial DNA Binding Buffer to the filtrate in the Collection Tube from Step 3. 5. Transfer 800 l of the mixture from Step 4 to a Zymo-Spin IIC Column in a Collection Tube & centrifuge at 10,000 x g for 1 min. Discard the flow through & repeat. 6. Add 200 l DNA Pre-Wash Buffer to the Zymo-Spin IIC Column & centrifuge at 10,000 x g for 1 min., then wash w/ 500 l Fungal/Bacterial DNA Wash Buffer. 7. Transfer the column to a clean 1.5 ml microcentrifuge tube & add 100 l DNA Elution Buffer directly to the column matrix. Centrifuge at 10,000 x g for 30 sec. to elute the DNA.
