prepGEM Bacteria effortlessly extracts DNA from a wide variety of microbial samples including:

  • gram-positive bacteria
  • gram-negative bacteria
  • protozoa
  • colonies and liquid cultures
  • biofilm and mucosal
  • archaea
  • swabs
  • metagenomic DNA
    (soil, stool, and water)
  • Depending on your laboratory equipment and end-use application, MicroGEM offers two options:


    • 1. Using Your Lab Equipment

      To use your lab’s existing thermocycler or liquid handler, choose the prepGEM Bacteria Kit, optimized to extract DNA from a broad range of bacterial sample types. The reagents are rigorously tested and QC’ed to guarantee them to be DNA-free.

      This kit produces single-stranded DNA suitable for PCR, qPCR, targeted sequencing (amplicon sequencing) from metagenomic samples, and 16S ribosomal DNA sequencing.

    • 2. Using MicroGEM's PDQeX Nucleic Acid Extractor

      MicroGEM’s automated technology provides easy sample preparation and extractions, with added capabilities to generate purified, double-stranded DNA. Use our PDQeX instrument if you are working with inhibitory samples (for example soil and stool) or performing NGS (Next Gen Sequencing) or require double-stranded DNA for library construction.

      This kit produces double-stranded DNA suitable for whole genome sequencing, PCR, qPCR, targeted sequencing (amplicon sequencing) from metagenomic samples, and 16S ribosomal DNA sequencing.
