High Molecular Weight DNA From Any Sample Type. 10^6 Mammalian HeLa cells, 25 mg mouse muscle, brain, and liver, 200 μl human blood, 200 μl mouse blood, 200 μl human saliva, and buccal swabs stored in DNA/RNA Shield (R1100) were extracted using the Quick-DNA HMW MagBead Kit (n=2). DNA is of high molecular weight size (>60 kb). Quality was assessed using Agilent 2200 TapeStation®.

High Molecular Weight Bacterial DNA Without Bead-Beating

The secret to easy sequencing analysis? Long DNA. Start your sequencing runs with the longest DNA and see the difference in your sequencing reads. As they say, bigger is better!

High Molecular Weight Bacterial DNA Without Mechanical Homogenization. Cultured E. coli (10^8 cells), Cultured L. monocytogenes (10^8 cells), 50 mg feces, and 75 μl ZymoBIOMICS Microbial Community Standard (D6300) were input into the Quick-DNA HMW MagBead kit (n=2). Length of the highest detected peak were recorded and averaged for each sample. DNA size was analyzed using Agilent’s Femto Pulse system.

Ultra-Pure. 200 μl human blood, 50 mg feces, 25 mg mouse gut, and 75 μl ZymoBIOMICS® Microbial Community Standard (D6300) were input into the Quick-DNA™ HMW MagBead and Supplier Q kits (n=2). Zymo Research consistently had higher purities (A260/230: >1.8) and comparable DNA recovery (μg). Absorbance A260/230, and total DNA recovery (μg) were quantified by NanoDrop™ 2000.
