The most critical factor to consider is the resilience of your sample. Many biological samples are soft and easy to lyse, such as mammalian cells and brain tissue, but others are very resistant to lysing and homogenization, such as hair and skin. Tougher samples often require more aggressive lysing matrices and sometimes unique conditions.Read more

The microbiome is a complex community of trillions of microorganisms that influence human biology in both positive and negative ways, including cancer development and progression.
Fusobacterium nucleatum, a gram-negative anaerobe associated with periodontal disease, originates in the oral microbial community and is prevalent in colorectal cancer (CRC)1.

Environmental samples consist of both biotic and abiotic components, representing a diverse community of microbes, animals and plants. Environmental DNA (eDNA) is an increasingly valuable resource for exploring and monitoring aquatic ecosystems and studying biodiversity.
With aquatic samples being so diverse in both composition and turbidity, there are a multitude of approaches that can be used to extract DNA. Here we describe key methods—preprocessing, collection and extraction—to get high-quality DNA from your samples for downstream applications, such as next generation sequencing and metabarcoding.

Mechanical homogenization using bead beating technology, such as MP Bio’s lysing matrices, is an effective method for cell lysis. Lysing matrices differ by size, shape, material, and composition.
When selecting the optimal lysis beads for your project, consider the toughness of your sample type, the particle size you wish to obtain, and the stability of your target molecule.

MP Biomedicals develops two new high-performance DNA extraction kits to advance both environmental and gut microbiome research
MP Biomedicals announced the launch of two new high-performance DNA extraction kits – SPINeasy™ DNA Kit for Soil and MagBeads FastDNA™ Kit for Feces for Feces – to advance your microbiome research.
Microbiome research has wide applications in agriculture, biofuel, ecology, environment remediation and healthcare. The characterization of soil and gut microbiome requires the extraction of genetic materials, but it is not an easy process as both sources have complex content which can hinder scientists from getting sufficient yield of DNA or DNA of high purity that can be used directly for downstream application.
