Default Best Robotics Platform for Soil/Fecal Extraction

Anyone use a robotics platform for gDNA extraction from fecal and/or soil? If so, which robotics platform, and which kit(s)?

Thanks

We have had success on the Chemagic using their DNA Stool 360 protocol and the QIAamp PowerFecal protocol/kit on the QIAcube. Both of these work for 96 well plate throughput.

When we don't have large sample size numbers we generally use the PowerSoil kit from MoBio, or the PowerFecal kit from MoBio, and manually process the samples.
