This product overview details the many benefits of MicroGEM’s prepGEM Bacteria extraction kit. MicroGEM’s prepGEM Bacteria kit provides a simple automated approach to studying a wide range of microbial cultures. Every aspect of the MicroGEM method ensures the samples are processed quickly and gently. Minimal sample prep, closed tube processing, and gentle lysis ensure that cross contamination and DNA fragmentation are drastically reduced, making MicroGEM’s extraction process streamlined while preserving the integrity of low abundance species.

Key advantages:

  • Single-tube extraction
  • Minimal transfer steps – opportunities for mistakes and contamination are minimized
  • Improved community representation in metagenomic samples
  • No ionic detergents or chaotropic salts
  • No magnetic beads – No spin-columns
  • Flexibility – suitable for low-throughput to high-throughput extraction with a single protocol
  • Easily automated using standard liquid handling solutions
  • Minimal plasticware required – Reduced waste and supply chain issues
