Instructions for Use of Product(s)

Literature # TM417

The Maxwell® RSC simplyRNA Blood Kit is used with the Maxwell® RSC Instruments to isolate total RNA from fresh (not frozen) whole blood collected in EDTA tubes. The simplyRNA Blood procedure purifies total RNA with minimal sample handling before automated purification on the Maxwell® RSC or Maxwell® RSC 48 Instrument. The Maxwell® RSC and Maxwell® RSC 48 Instruments are supplied with preprogrammed purification procedures and are designed for use with predispensed reagent cartridges. The Maxwell® RSC Instrument can process up to 16 samples, and the Maxwell® RSC 48 Instrument can process up to 48 samples, in about 50 minutes. The low elution volume results in concentrated high-quality RNA suitable for use in downstream applications.
