Microbiome DNA Enrichment

Microbiome DNA analysis can be challenging due to the high percentage of host DNA present in many samples. The NEBNext® Microbiome DNA Enrichment Kit facilitates enrichment of microbial DNA from samples containing methylated host DNA (including human), by selective binding and removal of the CpG-methylated host DNA. Importantly, microbial diversity remains intact after enrichment. The NEBNext Microbiome DNA Enrichment Kit is suitable for a wide range of sample types and is compatible with downstream applications including next generation sequencing on all platforms, qPCR and end-point PCR.
