OmniPrep™ for Soil
Our OmniPrep™ genomic DNA kits are for ultra pure genomic DNA that is suitable for all downstream
applications. Theses kits are fully scalable for large genomic DNA isolations. The procedure is slightly more
involved to ensure ultra pure DNA.
The OmniPrep™ Soil DNA kit provides all the reagents necessary to isolate PCR ready DNA for a large
variety of environmental samples. The kit is primarily designed for use with environmental samples
containing a high humic acid content, including difficult soil samples such as compost, manure and
sediment. A major issue with high humic acid samples is the humic acids, and metals and
polysaccharides, inhibit subsequent PCR. OmniPrep™ Soil DNA SoilOUT™ columns remove thisinterfering
agents allowing for successful PCR.
The kit uses a rapid precipitation technique that uses unique precipitation reagents to isolate genomic DNA
free from proteins and RNA. Pure genomic DNA is isolated in ~60 minutes. The resulting genomic DNA is
passed through the SoilOUT™ columns to remove the humic acid. The resulting sample is ready for PCR.
