Extracting microbial DNA from soil samples can be challenging. QIAGEN’s new DNeasy PowerSoil Pro Kit is even more effective than our original PowerSoil technology at isolating high yields of pure microbial DNA from all soil types, including compost, clay and top soil. The kit features a novel bead tube and optimized chemistry for more efficient lysis of soil bacteria and fungi. The kit also contains streamlined Inhibitor Removal Technology (IRT) to eliminate the challenging inhibitors commonly found in soil and environmental samples in even less time. Sequencing results reveal higher alpha diversity as measured by observed operational taxonomic units (OTUs) compared to other tested methods. Extraction of DNA using the DNeasy PowerSoil Pro Kit can be automated on the QIAcube Connect.
