FastDNA, FastRNA and FastProtein Extraction Kits

Versatile extraction kits that deliver high quality DNA, RNA, and proteins - ready to use for any downstream application. From genomic DNA, to total RNA, to Protein and other repetition small molecule isolation, yields and processing times are greatly enhanced through the use of the FastPrep™ Instruments, Adapters, and Lysing Matrix tubes. Other kits are available for applications such as gel isolation and reaction clean-up, and plasmid purification.



FastDNA Kits

Genomic DNA Isolation

FastDNA™ Kits quickly and efficiently isolates genomic DNA from a wide variety of sources. Designed for use with FastPrep® Instruments, plant and animal tissues, bacteria, algae, fungi and many other samples are easily lysed within 40 seconds. Kits include optimized Lysing Matrix tubes. Also included are 3 different chaotropic buffers for the homogenization of a wide variety of sample types. Following lysis, samples are centrifuged to pellet debris and lysing matrix. DNA is purified from the supernatant with a silica-based GeneClean® procedure. Eluted DNA is ready for digestion, electrophoresis, PCR and any other desired application.
  • Ideal for plant and animal tissues, cultured cells, bacteria, yeast, fungi, algae, viruses, and insects
  • Isolate PCR-ready DNA from a variety of sample types
  • Hazardous organic reagents are NOT required
  • Rapid and reproducible sample lysis with FastPrep™ instruments
  • Flexible format eliminates the need for separate DNA isolation kits


Extracted DNA from various animal samples using the FastDNA™ Kit: Approximately 1 μg of isolated DNA was loaded on a 1.2% agarose gel (0.5X TAE). Lane 1: ~0.4 g rat liver; Lane 2: ~0.5 g mouse brain; Lane 3: ~0.45 g chicken bone; Lane 4: Lambda Hind III marker.

FastRNA Kits

Total RNA Isolation

The FastRNA™ SPIN Kits quickly and efficiently isolates high-quality, total RNA from a wide variety of samples in approximately 15 minutes using a specialized Lysing Matrix for cell lysis and SPIN columns for the purification process. FastRNA™ Pro Kits use the traditional RNApro™ Solution to efficiently inactivate cellular RNases during cell lysis, thus preventing RNA degradation. Both kit formats utilize FastPrep® homogenization, and the purified RNA is ready for downstream applications, including RT-PCR and northern analysis.
  • Total RNA Isolated in high purity from a variety of samples including gram +/- bacteria, plant/animal tissue and cultured cells, yeast/fungi and spores, soil and environmental samples
  • Cellular RNases inactivated through protective buffers and the speed of FastPrep™ lysis
  • Removal of humics, polyphenols, and polysaccharides for uninhibited RT-PCR >rapid and reproducible results


Total RNA extracted from Soil Samples with the FastRNA® Pro Soil-Direct Kit. Approximately 15% of the total RNA isolated from 0.5 g of four different soil samples was loaded on to a 0.8% agarose gel. Lane 1: 1kb ladder, Lane 2: Soil #1, Lane 3: Soil #5, Lane 4: Soil #10, Lane 5: Soil #11.

FastProtein Kits

Protein Kits

The FastProtein™ Matrices used in conjunction with the FastPrep™ instrument offer the fastest way to release expressed proteins from bacteria and yeast. Save valuable time by reducing sample lysis time to seconds! Total proteins isolated with the FastProtein™ Matrices are native and can be used for a variety of applications including SDS-PAGE, Western Blotting, immunoprecipitation, gel mobility shift assays, and enzyme activity analysis.
  • Save time by reducing sample lysis time to seconds
  • Quickly and consistently lyse samples from different time points or induction conditions
  • Protein extract is ready for immediate electrophoresis or purification
