Application Note: Automated RNA Purification from Salmonid Organs Using a Novel Paramagnetic Particle Technology
4 January 2016

RNA viruses, including viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus, Salmonid alphaviruses (SAV) and infectious salmon anemia virus (ISAV), pose a significant threat to Atlantic salmon populations. Molecular techniques offer the means of monitoring for these viruses in fish farms as well as wild salmon populations. This poster explores the use of magnetic particle-based purification technologies for automated extraction of RNA from salmon and trout organs to facilitate rapid, reliable testing.
