Application Note: Purification and Evaluation of Total RNA from Porcine Skin
6 October 2017

By understanding the levels of RNA found in cells, scientists can better understand gene regulation and expression. Extraction of high quality RNA is the first and most vital step in performing many molecular biological techniques. RNA degrades relatively quickly so it's important to have a method that will isolate purified RNA while also minimizing degradation. In this application note, the potential of the Bead Ruptor Elite is evaluated for the extaction of RNA from porcine skin.
