The innuPREP Blood RNA Kit allows users to extract total cellular RNA from fresh or frozen whole blood samples, which were stabilized with either EDTA or citrate.
The specially optimized Lysis Buffer makes lysis extremely efficient, effectively deactivating endogenous and exogenous RNases. Using innuPREP Blood RNA Kit allows researchers to isolate highly pure RNA in an extremely short amount of time while completely omitting the highly toxic β-mercaptoethanol traditionally used in the extraction process. Upon elution in RNase-free water, the final RNA is ready-to-use and can be integrated in subsequent applications immediately. By using innuPREP Blood RNA MIDI direct Kit also the processing of higher sample volumes with up to 10 ml whole blood is possible. The kit is based on MIDI Spin Filters and allows isolation of higher amounts of RNA with same quality.
