ZyGEM has a number of products that lend themselves to the life science market. Whether its genomic testing, food quality testing or clinical research, ZyGEM’s chemistry – along with the PDQeX instrument – allow scientists to extract DNA quickly and effectively. Standard applications for samples such as buccal swabs and insect are available along with more specialty applications for challenging samples such as blood and tissue.

PDQeX System

The PDQeX 2400 is a rapid, robust DNA extraction device that can achieve PCR and Human profile-ready DNA in under ten minutes. The compact size means it can easily be placed in a laminar flow hood or on the benchtop.

PDQeX System

The PDQeX 2400 is a robust DNA extraction system that prepares PCR-ready DNA within 7-20 minutes or less. Its small footprint (200 x 200 mm), disposable extractor cartridges and 24 sample capacity make it perfectly suited to the needs of all types of laboratories, protecting the integrity of the sample and the safety of lab personnel.

prepGEM Bacteria

The prepGEM Bacteria Reagent Kit works on a wide range of bacteria types. The kit works well for Gram +ve, Gram -ve, capsuled and mixed samples. Email technical@zygem.com if you have a special application you wish to try out. We have methods for stool and soil but, as yet, we don’t recommend this kit for Gram +ve spores.

prepGEM Universal

This kit combines several of the original ZyGEM kits by providing a selection of different buffers and protocols. ZyGEM DNA extraction relies on PCR-compatible buffers, but the buffer needs to suit the substrate. The kit extracts DNA from saliva, buccal swabs, dispersed cells, blood, EDTA blood, insects and most animal tissues. Email technical@zygem.com if you have a special application you wish to try out.
