Purification of Concentrated High-Quality RNA from Cells and Tissues

Publication Date: 4/13


The ReliaPrep™ RNA Miniprep Systems offer a complete solution for the isolation of quality RNA from very small amounts of cultured cells or tissues. They provide a rapid purification method with the option of elution in a small volume (15μl or less) to generate highly concentrated RNA. Purification is achieved without using phenol/chloroform extraction or beta-mercaptoethanol, and a simple DNase step is included to eliminate genomic DNA efficiently. In this article, we demonstrate that RNA isolated from cells and tissues using the ReliaPrep™ Systems is intact, highly pure and ideally suited for applications such as RT-qPCR.
