Product Information


  • Isolation of microbial DNA from soil samples
  • ƒƒIncludes homogenization (SpeedMill, for instance) using Lysis Tubes specific to the application
  • ƒƒHigh-quality DNA free of any inhibitors (such as humic acids)
  • Suitable for use with homogenizers (such as the SpeedMill or others)


The innuSPEED Soil DNA Kit is a tool for extracting microbial DNA from soil samples. The extraction combines rapid homogenization of extremely complex starting material with efficient digestion of microbial cell walls in specially developed Lysis Tubes (using a SpeedMill or other homogenizer). After breaking down the material mechanically followed by a thermal lysis step, the DNA is selectively bound to the surface of a Spin Filter membrane. A novel wash buffer efficiently removes inhibitors such as humic acids. Finally, DNA is desorbed from the membrane through the addition of a low-salt buffer.

Detail Description

1. Homogenize and lyse the soil sample
2. Perform preliminary and final binding steps to bind DNA to the Spin Filter
3. Perform preliminary and final washing steps on the bound DNA
4. Perform preliminary and final DNA elution steps

Isolation (double determination) of microbial DNA from 6 different soil samples (Amazon rain forest). The isolated DNA was first applied to an 0.8 % TAE agarose gel and then introduced into a PCR specific to the microorganisms in question.
