Products and Services

As the industry leader in epigenetics, Zymo Research offers a complete collection of kits for epigenetics research. Besides the bisulfite conversion kits, which is the gold standard in methylation research, Zymo Research also provides kits for global methylation and hydroxymethylation analysis. To ensure a seamless quantification, Zymo Research has developed different reliable DNA Methylation Standards.

In the field of Microbiomics, Zymo Research offers a complete solution from collection to conclusion. The stabilization reagent DNA/RNA Shield™ forms the basis of a bias-free workflow as it prevents degradation of nucleic acids.

The ZymoBIOMICS® DNA extraction kit ensures an efficient lysis and profiles the composition with the Quick-16S NGS Library Prep Kit - the fastest on the market. Zymo Research validates each process phase by using Microbial Community Standards to ensure all steps are accurate. 16S sequencing will be performed upon request and a user-friendly data report with publication-ready plots and figures will be provided.

Bisulfite Conversion Kits

Choose from the best bisulfite conversion kits selection available in spin-column, 96-well, and MagBead formats. These innovative bisulfite conversion kits feature streamlined workflows, ≥ 99% conversion rates, automation friendly options, and low elution volumes for concentrated, bisulfite-converted DNA.

DNA/RNA Shield™ Collection Devices

DNA/RNA Shield™ preserves the genetic integrity of a sample at point of collection for sensitive down-stream analyses (i.e., Next-Gen Sequencing, RT-PCR, etc.). Any sample type can be stored in DNA/RNA Shield™ for
transport at ambient temperature, even in the most extreme conditions.

News & Innovations


As the industry leader in epigenetics, Zymo Research offers a complete collection of products and services for epigenetics research including bisulfite conversion kits, bisulfite-free methods, locus-specific analysis, library preparation kits, and services for Next-Gen Sequencing applications.

In addition, Zymo Research’s suite of EZ DNA Methylation™ products are the highest quality, most trusted, and most cited technologies for bisulfite conversion. Zymo Research also offers comprehensive products and services to investigate other areas of epigenetics, including DNA hydroxymethylation, protein-DNA interactions, histone modifications, RNA modifications, and RNA Sequencing.

Zymo Research is committed to enhancing the study of epigenetics by providing researchers of every discipline with quality products needed to answer the big questions in molecular biology research today.

Detection of SARS-CoV-2

Zymo Research globally supports COVID-19 testing efforts since the beginning of the pandemic with innovative products and streamlined workflows.

Dedicated collection devices allow efficient collection of various sample types and the included DNA/RNA Shield™ reagent inactivates SARS-CoV-2 for safe, stress-free handling of samples while preserving the integrity of viral RNA at ambient temperature.

The Quick DNA / RNA Viral Kits can be applied to rapidly process clinical samples manually or in a high-throughput automated manner, resulting in high-quality RNA ready for analysis. Reliable and highly sensitive detection of SARS-CoV-2 is guaranteed using the Quick SARS-CoV-2 Multiplex Kit.

The products are CE-IVD certified and are qualified to be used in the context of a diagnostic lab setting.

Wastewater analytics

Monitoring levels of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater allows for the earliest detection of COVID-19 cases and additionally enables the tracking of emerging variants of concern. For a safe and reliable workflow, the first step of collection and storage of the sample material is crucial particularly for such highly diluted material like wastewater.

Zymo Research provides the most effective and safe sample collection kit by inactivating pathogens and eliminating PCR inhibitors in one spin.

The possibility to enrich the total RNA from large volumes of water, wastewater, sludge and sewage is enabled by the water concentrating buffer in the Zymo Environ Water RNA kit. While inactivating SARS-CoV-2, this buffer securely preserves the integrity of viral RNA at ambient temperature.

Zymo Research also offers a Wastewater Covid 19 Testing Service which allows the tracking of incident numbers on average 7 days before the symptomatic cases appear.
