In the video below, our soil scientist Dr Hayley Craig shows you our standard protocol for collecting soil samples using the cold storage iDNAture kit.
Our soil and sediment sampling kits are easy to use in soft substrates and have been tested in terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments. Cold storage is the best way to preserve DNA in soils and sediment samples, but we recognise that this is not always possible. We therefore provide alternative means of sample preservation where required, and can help you to design a sampling methodology that meets your specific project requirements. Talk to our team to ensure you use the best kits for your project.
