There is increasing evidence that microbes living in soil (soil microbiome) have a tremendous impact on soil quality and subsequent ability to produce crops. The bacterial taxa found in soil are also present on the plant surface including roots and plant organs so there is a tremendous interest in better understanding the soil microbiome and how the microbiome impacts plant health, taste and growth rate.
The Omni Bead Ruptor family of bead mill homogenizers uses bead tubes that are optimized for soil processing to rapidly disrupt soil samples and liberate microbial DNA on up to 24 samples in a single cycle. The resulting DNA is of high quality and purity for downstream PCR and qPCR amplification.
