DNA Extraction

Input DNA quality and quantity can have dramatic impacts on the microbial profile generated for your samples.

By allowing the experts at CoreBiome to extract and prepare your DNA, we can ensure the best quality library preparations for amplicon sequencing.

CoreBiome accepts primary samples, such as swabs, fecal samples, and soil, as well as pre-extracted DNA. .

For more information regarding sample preparation and shipment, check out our sample guidelines​.

Cost

Extraction starts at $16.50 per sample.

Minimum Order

DNA extraction paired with downstream sequencing has no minimum order size. If purchased as a standalone assay, a minimum of 24 samples is needed.

Specifications

Our gold-standard is the PowerFecal Pro extraction, but we can optimize extraction to suit your sample types.

Each DNA extraction includes a quality control report as well as internal controls.

Absolute Quantification

qPCR-based microbial quantification for absolute abundance and bacterial load profiling. 

Absolute quantification can be paired with our shotgun sequencing approaches to help you estimate bacterial counts and avoid dealing with relative abundance data.

For the best Absolute Quantification results, we recommend sending fresh-frozen samples that can we weighed and ​extracted​ at CoreBiome. 

Contact us​ to discuss which samples types work best.

Cost

Absolute Quantification starts at $19.00 per sample  

Minimum Order

Absolute Quantification paired with downstream sequencing has no minimum order size. If purchased as a standalone assay, a minimum of 24 samples is needed.

Specifications

Each Absolute Quantification includes a pdf and .csv return of your 16S copy number estimates per mg of sample submitted.

CoreBiome provides services and generates data for research purposes only.
