Great value, quality RNA, unbeatable price
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Analyze RNA expression in cells transformed with oncogenes

"The RNA micro kit is awesome! I cannot recommend it enough for price and quality. My lab has used a variety of kits but this is by far the best product available. The manuals are helpful and clear. The RNA is always great in quality. Most of all, the price is unbeatable compared to all competitors."

Great product and good value!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze gene expression from cell lines

"The kit is easy to use with clear instruction. Anyone with college science background will be able to extract the RNA from cells. The technical support generally responds in a few days and troubleshoot the issues right away."

The Quick-RNA Microprep is the best at recovering transcripts from low input samples.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Extract Hepatitis C RNA from tissue

"We only use the Zymo Quick-RNA Microprep for our single-cell extractions of liver tissue. In the past, we had experimented with various other spin-based, magnetic bead-based, and even Trizol extractions, but none could afford us the reproducibility and low elution volume that we desperately needed to recover the highest concentration of HCV RNA from single hepatocytes. In addition to the lower elution volume offered by the micro kit, the cost is substantially less than for other comparable kits. Finally, the best reason that we exclusively use Zymo is for the ability to order individual kit components which allow us to optimize extractions for those incredibly difficult applications."

Good results, gDNA could be an issue depending on sample.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analyze gene expression in samples

"Very easy to use. Discovered for using with our particular sample type, granulosa and cumulus cells that have gDNA contamination in our RNA, even after using the on column DNAse option. Had to do another DNase treatment and RNA purification to eliminate the gDNA. May be particular to our sample type, checked with customer support and we were using the proper amount of lysis buffer. Always be sure to do a check for gDNA before doing reverse transcription."

Very bad for low cell number even around 100K
Rating: 1.0

  • Application Area:RNA isolation from cells 100K

"I don't recommend this kit for isolation of RNA from low number of cells as the company claims. You will end up with almost no RNA. I contacted the company but they just replied with textbook troubleshooting. It is not that cheap to save some money."

All ZYMO kits are trust worthy.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:RNA isolation from tissue and cell line.

"Recently I changed almost every one of my kits from Q company to ZYMO research. One of the kits is Quick-RNA MicroPrep. This kit is easy to use and efficiency is also as good as previous kit from Q company or better. Never miss this product for you experiments with cheaper price and high quality results."

Review date: 26 Jul 2016 | Quick-RNA ™ Microprep

The Quick-RNA ™ Microprep kit is an innovative product designed for the easy, reliable, and rapid isolation of DNA-free RNA from a wide range of cell (up to 10 6 ) and tissue samples (up to 5 mg). The procedure combines a unique buffer system with Fast-Spin column technology to yield high quality total RNA (including small RNAs 17-200 nt) in about 10 minutes.

The procedure is simple: Add the provided RNA Lysis Buffer to a sample, then purify the RNA using the Zymo-Spin ™ Columns .  The result is highly-concentrated, DNA-free RNA that is suitable for subsequent RNA-based methods including RT-PCR, hybridization, sequencing etc .  In addition, the kit can be used for enrichment of small and large RNAs in two separate fractions.
