In a previous article, we discussed the basic characteristics of biofilm samples and factors that influence sample prep and handling. Today we want to share with you some very important tips for isolation of DNA or RNA from biofilm samples. After working with numerous different biofilms and biomats, these recommendations are based on our experience and the experiences of the scientists we worked with while developing our novel method for biofilm extraction.
This list may expand over time as we continue to learn more about biofilm and work with new and interesting samples. We are always looking for new samples to try in our labs. If you have a sample that is very difficult to work with, let us know and we can try it out and make some custom recommendations.
