Soil processing method journal article supporting data

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This study aimed to optimize a previously used indirect processing protocol, which included a series of washing and centrifugation steps. Optimization of the protocol included: identifying an ideal extraction diluent and evaluating variation in the number of wash steps, variation in the initial centrifugation speed, sonication and shaking mechanisms. The optimized protocol was demonstrated at two laboratories in order to evaluate the recovery of spores from loamy and sandy soils. Data supplied are statistical data and were used to help support conclusions and tables in the journal article.
