Works well for most of our isolation needs
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Expression Analysis

"We are a large throughput genomics analysis laboratory and have tried most RNA isolation techniques, but keep coming back to the RNeasy columns. The 96 well format addresses our through put and the flexibility allows us to easily use it for isolation of different sources of nucleic acid. The quality is better than any other methods we have tried, so downstream tasks are carried out with confidence."

Great RNA extraction kit for tissue
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:RNA Extraction from Tissue

"RNeasy Mino kit is excellent for RNA extraction from tissue. RNA yield is very consistent and clean."

  • Application Area:RNA extraction from brain tissue

"This kit is very easy to use and provides a very clean sample of RNA from the tissue. Although it is more costly than the TriReagent it provides a higher yield and cleaner sample which is especially important when starting with small tissue amounts and when an especially clean sample is needed."

  • Application Area:For plant RNA extraction for a variety of downstream applications

"RNA quality is very good and clean. One column DNAse digestion is required if the PCR product does not have introns in it when doing RT-PCR. This must be due to some genomic DNA contamination. Alternatively, use primers spanning exon-exon boundaries and skip the DNAse treatment."

  • Application Area:RNA Extraction

"It’s really simple to do with a quick procedure including using the shredder step (separate kit) can take 10 minutes total, so no excuses not to do those RNA extractions. Everything is included in the kit and it’s really hard to get it wrong. I’ve been using for years and unlikely to change. Highly recommended."

  • Application Area:RNA Purification And Clean-up

"This is a very easy to use RNA purification kit, however, when purifying RNA from brain samples, you are likely to receive high contamination of your sample (read at 220-230mm wavelength). To overcome this problem, one needs to add washes at a higher volume then recommended in the protocol, and keep your samples off ice at all steps of the procedure. "
