The PolyATtract® System 1000 isolates messenger RNA directly from crude cell or tissue lysates, eliminating the need for total RNA isolations. This system uses the MagneSphere® technology for the purification of poly(A)+ RNA, eliminating the need for oligo(dT) cellulose columns. The increased yield of mRNA using this system allows the detection of low-copy-number mRNAs in relatively small amounts of material using Northern blot analysis. The isolated mRNA is suitable for all molecular biology applications, including in vitro translation, cDNA synthesis, PCR analysis, ribonuclease (RNase) protection assays, primer extension and Northern blots.
The MagneSphere® Technology Magnetic Separation Stands can be used in conjunction with any of the PolyATtract® Systems and are ideal for applications requiring multiple paramagnetic isolations of biomolecules.
