The ZymoBIOMICS-96 MagBead DNA Kit allows for a simple bind, wash, elute procedure that is unmatched in providing ultra-pure DNA that is free of PCR inhibitors (e.g. polyphenols, humic acids) in as little as 90 minutes for 96 samples, making it ideal for all downstream applications including PCR, arrays, 16s rRNA gene sequencing, and shotgun sequencing. Sample variability is greatly reduced by using the Microlab STAR and the resulting endotoxin-free and high quality DNA is ready for restriction endonuclease digestion, ligation, PCR, transformation, sequencing, etc.
