news February 10 2020

Jump start your microbiome studies!

The DreamPrep NAP workstation featuring Zymo Research can simplify your nucleic acid extraction workflows – today and in the future. It offers an optimized example workflow for the ZymoBIOMICS™ 96 MagBead DNA Kit, developed and verified in close collaboration with Zymo Research.

The new automated platform features three pre-loaded Zymo Research protocols:

  • ZymoBIOMICS 96 MagBead DNA Kit
  • Quick-DNA/RNA Viral MagBead
  • Quick-DNA Magbead Plus Kit
DreamPrep & ZymoBIOMICS DreamPrep & Quick-DNA/RNA Viral DreamPrep & Quick-DNA Plus
Validated High-throughput Microbiome Extraction:
Demonstrated on Human Fecal Samples & Skin Swabs
Automated Viral RNA Extractions from
Plasma and Serum
Automating High Throughput Genomic DNA Extractions
from Any Sample Type

Simplify your workflows.

Combining the Fluent® Automation Workstation and Fluent GX Assurance Software,  DreamPrep NAP is a fully customizable solution providing walkaway  processing of magnetic bead-based protocols to meet your current and future needs.This preconfigured, user-oriented system helps you to get up to speed faster, allowing you to concentrate on your experiments instead of your automation. Standardized workflows help you to obtain consistent results and minimize the risk of errors, while reducing training requirements and operator-to-operator variability.

Microbiome-grade DNA from any sample.

ZymoBIOMICS  DNA kits offer efficient and unbiased lysis of Gram-positive and  negative bacteria, fungi, protozoans and viruses, generating nucleic  acid samples ready for immediate microbiome or metagenome analysis.

The simple workflow has been fully automated and optimized to ensure  inhibitor-free DNA – even for very low abundance organisms – from feces,  soil, water, biofluids, biofilms, etc.*

Complete peace of mind.

The ZymoBIOMICS Microbial Community Standard is a pool of 10 different microbial species designed to assess the bias and sensitivity of workflows in microbiomics and metagenomics studies.

It provides a straightforward method to validate workflows, from purification through to NGS results. This microbial standard was used to validate the automated workflow, so you can have complete peace of mind.
